The handset features a 3.2" display with 360x480 pixels, an 800MHz processor and a 5MP camera with flash and 720p HD video recording. Of course, onboard are BBM and all the usual BlackBerry software security features, that has made RIM's devices a favorite for enterprises and government agencies...

Its for those who want a full touch-screen blackberry experience but are on a tight budget.

No such BlackBerry solution exists for those on a tight budget... when you buy a BlackBerry, the name alone makes it cost more.

They are still selling them for more than they deserve to be sold for... when they start selling them the same way that Nokia's latest and greatest have been... as in 50+% discounts off of the full retail price... then you will know that they are not as overpriced any more.

This will fail and here is why...
1. It will still cost customers $100 or more on contract. Most customers will just chose lower end Android, iPhone 4 or the free iPhone 3gs.
2. When looking at the specs this phone should have come out 2 years ago. My parents flip phone has better specs then this (I'm being sarcastic).
3. BB still has no Apps! Apps are the driving force for successful smartphones.
4. Businesses are starting to move away from BlackBerry Enterprise and going with Active Sync. There is a ton of software currently available that will allow a similar experience for Administrator control using active sync.

5. for the last two years, the majority of users and buyers of Nokia's S60 5th Edition and Symbian^3 phones, all around the world, have complained at the smallish (less than 4") low resolution (360x640) nHD displays that Nokia was using. How can RIM expect to do any better with what is essentially a three-quarter nHD display on this device?

But,360x480 pixels is better than most low-end android phone HVGA (320x480)...
And i think this phone is not bad at all...
