Is it just me or does the BlackBerry 88whatever kind of seem like the BlackBerry you get when the BlackBerry you really want isn’t available to you?

We just ran a very scientific poll where we asked RIMarkable readers which of the trackball bearing BlackBerrys they like and, with the exception of one person, the very few that said BlackBerry 88xx qualified their response with because it is what is available to them right now.

The BlackBerry Curve and the BlackBerry Pearl ran away with it. Could this be why RIM is coming out with additional hardware configurations of the same devices? Usually we just see a GSM model followed by a CDMA model and then RIM moves on to the next model all together. Look, however, at all the different variations of RIM’s latest BlackBerrys.
