quite possibly at DevCon later this month. More importantly, RIM has promised that it will have one of its SuperPhone models ready to be displayed at the conference. As pointed out this morning by the guys at Crackberry, this does not necessarily mean that those attending DevCon will get a hands-on look at the models that RIM is counting on to survive. In fact, it could mean that the SuperPhones will be stuck inside a glass enclosure, the way the BlackBerry PlayBook was when the tablet was first introduced to the public.
RIM needs to get the new "BBX" line of smartphones off to a good start with the media and consumers, and a real hands-on approach to the SuperPhones is needed to quash the skepticism that would naturally arise if the phones were untouchable at DevCon.
