The selection of smart-phones was unbelievable. They all seemed so similar in price and features. The space is so competitive now. I just don't see how RIMM has any shot here. It would take a miracle to pull off any meaningful increase in market share, especially in the U.S.. I would think Asia would be extremely competitive as well since they're even more devices.
If you're considering buying RIMM because you think this device may stand out then I would consider checking out the current lineup for yourself.
