In preparation for the August 15th launch of the newest BlackBerry, RIM has released a pretty nifty promo video. Highlighting the new features that the Waterloo smartphone maker hopes will make a big splash with consumers, this video doesn't go too in-depth. Fast segments and short demos keep even us ADD folks interested without boring you to tears. The acting, for the most part, was a little lackluster, but I can forgive them for that as long as I get to see that sexy Torch.
Man, I tell ya, watching this makes me wish the launch date was here already. A revamped webkit browser, OS 6, and a touchscreen done right, although I could do without the integrated social media stuff.. Plus the blond near the beginning isn't hard on the eyes either. Hey AT&T, if I pre-order 20 of these things, do I get her PIN too?
Cant wait to get your paws on a 9800? Tell us about it below.
I agree. That hardware is old news. Is damn near primitive at best. I had a vertical slider phone before 2004!! Wtf RIM! Don't get me wrong I love BlackBerrys but I can't help but to feel embarrased. I have the storm 2. Which is supposed to be a top of the line phone. My friend bought the EVO and I feel like mines is a friggin star tac! RIM needs to step up hard and fast. I'm if it wasn't for the network I'd jump to a different carrier for the EVO or the apple. Posted via mobile device
Let's be frank, RIM hasn't been very impressive. Neither with the hardware or software. Is not knocking RIM down but they have been lagging behind hard. Yes the torch seems to have many bells and whistles, but let's be honest is not impressive at all. Posted via mobile device
The first storm was impressive at first. But we all know that it was all icing and no cake. OS 6 is long overdue. But in my own opinion is just not worth extending a contract. innovation is called for. Not reinvention. Posted via mobile device
