Weekly Contest: Too much of a good thing?

BlackBerry 8820With the BlackBerry 8320 coming out on T-Mobile today, it might be time to wonder if any of us should have bothered picking up the 8300 in the first place. It’s been, what, three months and we’re already looking at the Curve like a rotary phone? The BlackBerry 8820 is out, but the 8800 is still relatively new. We talked a bit about our excessive BlackBerry selection a few weeks ago, which looked at the situation in a fairly positive light, but let’s face it: planned obsolescence is good for sales, but doesn’t give end-users much mercy. On the other hand, this new aggressive tempo is making RIM more competitive versus other wireless innovators. So, BBCoolers, for this round of the Weekly Contest we ask you: would you rather RIM keep pumping out new devices at this pace, or should things slow back down to the way they used to be, with just a few BlackBerrys coming out each year? Whoever can best defend or refute RIM’s new strategy will win 3 games from Bplay.

i think they should slow down a little or at least release new berrys at one time with all the features i was pissed that i had to upgrade my 7130e which was and still is a great phone for a 8830 i put it off as long as i could but rim needs to think about those of us who must have the latest phone but dont have the cash to drop every 1-2 monthes
