I was just having a conversation with a long time BlackBerry user that just picked up a new device recently. I asked her what model she got and she said, “That cute little BlackBerry from Cingular.” I said, “Seriously, what model did you get?” She said, “The one with the full keyboard.” I said, “That sounds like the BlackBerry 8700c” She said, “I don’t know. I just told them to give me the newest BlackBerry with a full keyboard because I don’t like those little BlackBerrys like the one you have.”

This reminded me of a conversation that I had with a couple of friends back during the NFL playoffs where I was trying to tell them that the Treo 700w was not a new Blackberry. These kinds of conversations make me wonder why there are so many different BlackBerry models and why so few people know what they are?
