The rest served him well, folks. Thought returns this week with an insightful and respectable commentary regarding the past year in BlackBerry world. Got something to add? Leave a comment and let us know.
In America this week we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, and so I thought it only appropriate to pause and reflect on what we BlackBerry fans can be grateful for this year. By anyoneâ€™s estimation this has been a very good year for the BlackBerry, and so without further ado here are the highlights.
1) The BlackBerry Pearl. The introduction of the Pearl fulfilled a longstanding dream of many: a BlackBerry device that was fun and stylish as well as practical. The product is already proving itself to be a winner in the marketplace as well as with the press, and is transforming a whole new group of consumers into BB fans. RIM has scored big with its foray into the consumer market and revealed a whole new dimension to its design philosophy.
2) The BlackBerry 8800. For those for whom the Pearl isnâ€™t good enough, there are the rumors of the upcoming 8800 series release to keep your hopes alive. With a full QWERTY keyboard and integrated WiFi in a Pearl-like design, the 8800 models may prove to be the Holy Grail for many BlackBerry fans.
