New Blackberry outed
Our brilliant colleague Jason came across the new RIM hardware roadmap last night. Seems that they’ve already found the answer that will keep us away from choosing the Pearl, with the Indigo and Crimson launching in Q1 and Q2 2007.
It looks tall, and another attempt to narrow the QWERTY keyboard. I tried the 7100 for a week in early 2005 and it was extremely annoying to type on. The 8700 size and structure are as snug as you want to go, Mike. Please give us distinct professional products, and don’t mix the needs of the enterprise customer (fast data input and a working phone) with the “needs” of the consumer (phone, toys and the eye candy factor).
