    We could speculate forever on whether it's for branding or what not but time will tell what's up.
    Yeah, but I guess RIM wants to put more money and effort into the guts and the stability of the device, rather than just adding a nice 12MP camera on them. But RIM could still do a good update on the camera!

    While the Nokia may not be popular state side it by far the biggest cell phone manufacturer in the world. They make great phones, the Nokia E71 was fantastic except on AT&T it sucked. Anyway, there are many manufacturers of great phones that have superb cameras so I'm not buying that from RIM. They are, per usual, behind the times with this.

    Yeah that's a good point. RIM is always a few steps behind every other carrier. I know that I think even Accer has that touch device coming out that has a 1GHz processor inside and I think a 8MP camera or something. Where's RIMs?

    RIM has always focused on business devices, even the Storm which they tout as being more consumer friendly is far from it. Most business users don't care about cameras, MP's on camera etc. So I think they are stuck in the rut of business only mindset. However, they do need to step it up. I had a meeting the other day with one of the biggest law firms in the US and all the whole law firm were using iPhones. So as more phone manaufacturers develop a good mix of consumer and business features RIM will have to step up or continue to lose market share.

    That's weird. Where are they made?
    Are you asking about the device itself? Because they're probably still all from Canada yet.
    Yeah that's what I was thinking. Maybe one in canada and one from mexico or somewhere else.

    Like the storm some are even made over seas.

    Just pop the battery off and look at the stickers.

    Wow that's crazy! But like you said business users don't really care about all that stuff, but Apple is mixing both consumer and business friendly feautres into the iPhones. So basically RIM will have to step up like you said and get out of their little "mold" of a device they've been putting out for these past years and change a little. Or they're gonna just do down the drain slowly.

    I love the Vodafone splash screen

    I am at Vodafone Germany and would love to see this device in the shop behind the next corner.

    What irritates me is, that the Vodafone splash screen is not full screen, it looks like you startup your Storm and have it in landscape ...
