Crap phone. All they did really was replace the track ball with trackpad and some internal stuff. Still same crap phone I keep see coming back into my store for every technical problem there is out there. Avoid it at all costs people!!!!

You really have no idea what you're talking about. Unfortunately some people may listen to you.

This is a solid platform, but took WAY too long to come out. I'm guessing it will lose 50% of the sales it would have otherwise had if it had come out 6 months ago.

its just nothing new, and with androids on the rise i dont see this phone selling well. why get a brand new already dated phone when you can have an 8mp camera and a 1ghz processor.

To each there own , if you want a toy, buy a droid. We sell 20 to 1 blackberry's to droids up here and have 20+ companies on blackberry servers for a secure connection/email. Not everyone wants a toy!

Variety guys. Not everyone wants the same device. Did someone skip the "right OS for the right person training?" Thanks BlackBerry!

I need Email, not all the internet and games/apps that one can get on an Android OS. I ALWAYS get my email - haven't met amybody with a Droid, HTC or Moto, that can say the same. THIS is why there are many options out there. Something to fit everybody because everybody wants/needs something different. I NEVER had an issue with my Tour, just prefer the larger Tocuh Screen of my S2. I am (somewhat) patiently waiting for the release of 6.0!
