This is all you got RIM? Really?

by on July 26, 2010

For my first official posting on here about something Tech, it’s very fitting that it starts where my smartphone obsession first started, with Research in Motion.  It was about 2 years ago, when I got my Blackberry Curve 8330.  I thought it was the coolest thing since sliced bread, and at the time it was.

However, the “honey moon” period really only lasted 6 months till i realized the realties of what it meant to own a Blackberry. Now, don’t get me wrong they are great devices for a certain population and after my 8330 i owned 2 more RIM devices (Tour 9630, Storm 2 9550), but really how many of you out there still think that Blackberry is the “it” smartphone?  How many of you even have a Blackberry device, in your current top 3 (released, rumored, anything!) ?  That’s what i thought…

Now to hear, by way of that there is a 4G Blackberry which is supposedly coming to Big Red by the end of the year.  The site has it on good authority that the “Blackberry Triton”  will be hitting retailers nationwide mid-way through the holiday shopping season.  It will boast supposedly, a front-facing camera, a 5MP on the back and what we’re all hoping for OS6, with at least 512MB ram, right RIM??

While this is all that’s out at the moment for specs on this new device, it doesn’t seem like there is that much revolutionary in the phone except that it’s LTE capable.  Hopefully this isn’t all we have coming for our 1st 4G device from our friend’s up north, and this time they release a new device that’s somewhat revolutionary and not more of the same ole’ same ole’ (see: Blackberry Bold 9700, Blackberry Tour 9650, among many others)

    As much as I LOVE Ms. CrackBerry (what I call my BlackBerry) I think RIM has a terrible marketing scheme. It doesn’t help your following to slightly revamp a phone each year or scrap a great model all together. I paid retail price for my Curve 8900 only to have it discontinued a year later; give or take a week. RIM needs to focus its product and make some executive decisions. The 9700 was release last fall and reports of an “updated” 9780 is reported to be dropping this fall. RIM we don’t want to be beta testers for phones that you plan on releasing later; we want top of the line products from JUMP!
