    Cool Would you buy a BlackBerry to your 7 year old child? Well They Want it!





    RIM’s Annual General Shareholders’ meeting was last week, July 15th, and some of the best news to come out of it was actually from a child in the audience. While he probably isn’t a shareholder, he had a good question for the RIM executives.
    “Are you going to make a phone more for kids so that my Mom will let me get one?” the kid asked.
    While Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis didn’t have a concrete answer for the kid, but they seemed optimistic. “There’s lots of opportunity and, you know, if the current BlackBerrys aren’t acceptable to your mother, hopefully the next ones will,” Lazaridis said.
    This is an interesting market as children are becoming more tech savvy at increasingly younger ages. Who knows, maybe in 10 years your 5 year old will be hooked up to a BES and getting push email.
    Other news at the AGM included a chat about the sponsorship behind the U2 360 Tour, to get more consumers interested in BlackBerry devices.

    The one in the middle (Storm Slider) would be a good one for a kid if it were real!
