While I personally don't like the look of the device, I just don't understand why people need to overreact.
Clearly sprint or verizon still see a market for another clamshell even if plenty of us don't like them, but it is only one device in the blackberry range and you are free to choose the one that suits you best.
Personally, I expect I'll go for the slider when it comes out as it gives me a large screen without the downside of giving up a physical keyboard, but other people will prefer other form factors.
