funny thing.... I still have my ORIGINAL S1, still works, still not getting much love from anyone except a few hybrids here and there.

If RIM were smart, they'd realize there is a loyal customer base out here, but turning their backs on us won't help their bottom line.
RIM is banking on the idea that people get bored with a device after a month or so and want something new. This is not always true and I'll tell you how I know this; I work on cars for a living and even though there are new ones coming out all the time, I still work on ones built in the 50's and 60's on a regular basis.
Truth be told, I'd rather spend my money on something that works, lasts and can still be used later if i want it to. I really don't like being forced to "upgrade" just because the manufacturer refuses to support their own product a month later.
Have you ever wondered why things intended to make our lives simpler keep getting more complicated to use?
