    My guess is... With new phones comin
    Out, they want you to spend your money
    And get them. If you get an os that makes
    You happy with your phone, you won't
    Want to buy the latest and greatest!
    What ya think? Wait till the new
    Releases aren't as cool!

    What did I miss? Was it anything good?

    Jason I don't think (or at least hope) that is RIM's strategy. They are facing steep competition from the iPhone, Pre and Googles new phone coming out that they really can't afford any missteps. They are already losing ground in terms of percentage of marketplace. If they botch this Tour release (like they did with the Storm) there will be hell to pay.

    So you think maybe they are putting there
    Time into the tours release to make sure it
    Doesn't flop?
    Although I'm not convinced that what I said
    Doesn't have some truth to it.

    Yeah J, I think they did take their time with this device. According to the reviews I've read, most people are saying really good things about the Tour. One reviewer mentioned a couple of minor bugs with the production OS but nothing really to worry about.

    I have no inside knowledge regarding what RIM does but I sure hope your theory is wrong. With the economy struggling and people barely able to afford their bills, if your theory is true, RIM should be publicly flogged.
