“Hate” is such a strong word. But unfortunately, it’s true! C Net Asia has an article by Matsushita Shuji, who spits hatred against our beloved device. Low adoption rates and American-bashing are all contained within the story, and Shuji reports that the BlackBerry will be one of the biggest electronic disappointments in Asia – ever. He doesn’t use those words exactly, but we can tell he’s thinking it.
BlackBerry? No Japanese gadget freaks had shown the slightest interest in this small mail terminal..er, information terminal, so far. Even the business people who have a lot of dealings with Americans were not very enthusiastic. Simply, everybody felt sort of pity to Americans who proudly show around their BlackBerries as the most classy business tool.
“Poor people! Since their K-tai system is so primitive and hopeless, they have to compromise with that toylike Blackberry thing. It hasn’t got even a camera in it!”
