Blackberry flipping out
RIM the maker of the obviously iPhone inspired Blackberry Bold (did they use a photocopier or tracing paper?) has decided that copying the iPhone isn’t going to cut it. It is time to do something, um, bold? Eschewing the form factor found in most smartphones, the much loved lozenge shape, Blackberry is trying something new.
The something new? A clamshell blackberry, a flip phone with all the Blackberry goodness people have come to expect. What does this mean for the iPhone? Are there people out there who secretly crave a flip phone version of the Blackberry so badly that they will ditch the iPhone for the fun of casually flipping their Blackberry open? Will i prove popular enough so that Apple will be forced to do a flip phone iPhone? Yeah sure, and the iPhone will get buttons too.
