As always, the 10 indicates the device has GPS and the 20 indicates Wi-Fi. It looks like they will come in red and black initially, but knowing RIM we'll have a full rainbow of colors when all is said and done.We've

Wow, this seems kind of interesting as the existing line up of blackberry devices are pretty bulky in your pocket... well, except for the Pearl. I think this could open up the market for RIM as some people might find this sleek AND utilitarian!

if you would trade your dare for a suretype blackberry, then obviously you dont know which kind of device you need. blackberrys and dumbphones are 2 seperate categorys of phones with 2 seperate uses. hate to be mean, but thats a silly statement.

the dare has a html browser and some people just want to surf the web with it. I sell both phones everyday and its clear you dont so im gonna go ahead and call you an idiot. Not every customer purchases a smart phone because they need it for business uses. So people just want a fun "toy". What would you classify the pearl as? It clearly isnt designed for the one the go business professional. Ever try to compose full length email on one of those?

same here. i can't wait for this phone to come out for verizon. i was thinking about getting the samsung alias, but this flip phone seems much better. how long do u guys think we will have to wait for rim to make a cdma version of the bb kickstart ? hopefully by the end of this year. (keeping my fingers crossed)

Just Wrong! If RIM wanted to create a clamshell version of their devices they shoud've re-design the entire product a bit better. Because right now the location of the keys plus the layout of the keys looks a bit off to me. Good try thought RIM.
