RIM has nothing to worry about with this snoozer of a device. Yawn…
It may be a “snoozer” compared to many BB devices, or even Windows Mobile or Palm Treos, but there will be a number of Nokia fans that will like the “phone” look of this device.
Personally, I’m more excited by the BlackBerry Connect software that is shipping with the device. AFAIK, this is the first shipping version of BB Connect in the US. Good news!
