The last time a BlackBerry launch was so important, the Storm turned out to be a drizzle

With all of the excitement over today's introduction of the BlackBerry 10, it brings back not so spectacular memories of the last time a BlackBerry launch created such a buzz, it was over the first touch-screen 'Berry; it was November 2008 when RIM finally gave into the touch screen era and brought out a phone that was supposed to challenge the Apple iPhone...

I remember saying this a week ago. BB10 will no doubt mark the end of RIM.

Because in 2008 people want iPhone and iPhone only, now the Apple hype is gone and people start to break out... Just like in 2011 that people want iPad and iPad only, now the android tablets are rising tho... Not to mention, some people started to pick playbook instead lol

Not necessarily. I'm not holding out high hopes for Blackberry, but BB10 has potential as long as the feature set is there and it's not a buggy pile of s**t like the Storm was on arrival. Furthermore, Blackberry still has the richest email interface out of all of the smartphone platforms. I can see Enterprise customers welcoming Blackberry back, at least.

Well I turned out to be right. BB10 did mark the end of RIM as they are now changing their name to Blackberry.

Didn't even know it is introduced today, and that says more about RIM than about me sorry to say.

This will not be another Storm launch...market share will be tough, but it won't completely flop. Looking forward to the announcement today

Nokia Lumia tablets would be the best ever hardware tablets of all the time.

Thats funny because I had that phone. I think I still got one in the box in my closest. Ah, the days of what we thought an OS could or should do back in the day.
