    Is RIM Cooking up some Computer Goodies???

    So what do you all think, is this something you're interested in seeing RIM develop?

    It does sound very interesting. I was surprised to see that it would have an optical disc drive. That is not something that is normal for a machine this size. It seems like it might be a pretty decent gadget and I would definitely give it a test drive around the block!

    What a load of crap.

    This crap popped up on crackberry yesterday. It is a load. Why would they do this? Further, what you describe is a run of the mill netbook. There is no chance they would actually develop and manufacture one themselves, so it would be some other rebranded device. Many devices have broadband and sim cards.

    If RIM is building a netbook, it's highly unfortunate that they are using the intel platform just like all other run-of-the-mill netbooks.

    If they REALLY want to offer something different, they should build something on the Nvidia ION platform.

    bbprintz215, I believe the optical drive they are referring to would be a bundled USB external. A 10" netbook chassis simply wouldn't have the room for an internal drive.

    Just because you slap a BB logo on something doesn't make it a seller. Rim should stick to what it does best and leave this to other manufacturers.
