Obviously the BlackBerry 8900 is the biggest thing on our minds right now, but there’s still a lot of 2008 to look forward to, and if the rumors of a May release are to believed, that leaves plenty of room for a few more devices. It’s been said by a RIM exec that we can expect four to five new BlackBerrys this year, so your mission this week is to name ‘em. Maybe a touchscreen is still in the cards…? Maybe we’ll see an 8910 before the year’s out, but what would it have, if it’s already got Wi-Fi and GPS? Maybe the 8300 and 8100 series will see a next generation upgrade like the 8800? Make a solid case for the upcoming BlackBerry lineup, and win a copy of the fine BlackBerry music-player, FlipSide, now featuring Last.fm support.
Hooah, lots of entries last week. Lots of people wanted to weigh in on the touchscreen issue, and for the most part, folks weren’t missing the lack of a touchscreen and were reasonably interested in the 8900 (although not jump-up-and-down excited). Dan did an especially good job of positioning the new device as a solid single choice for consumers, while also going over why slider and touchscreen designs just won’t fly. The DecalGirl skin is yours, Dan! Thanks for all the interest folks, and we hope to see you again this week!
