    I don't think it's sad news at all. With the new technology coming out in smartphones this means Blackberry will develop new and better devices to keep up with the likes of the I-phone, Nokias, Palms, etc. This is good news for us, this means that we will continue to get exciting BB's hit the market. If there was no competition we would still have the old school Blackberry on our hip. new and exciting is always better, especially when you get to play with it

    Exactly. Without the iPhone I do not believe RIM would have really pushed to develop the Storm. Competition is great for us!

    I agree wholeheartedly. Competition is a good thing for driving innovation.

    I really wish that the article was about RIM's next big, rather than Apple's. I will agree to that.

    wow some iphone fans on the forum, nice to see you can justify your having a BB over an iphone. The storm came about due these exclusivity deals, RIM's market share in the smart phone segment was slightly ahead of apples anyway, but nice to hear fanboys play here too. Anyway Verizon and Vodafone only wanted to draw more subscribers for themselves as the iphone had struck an accord with 02 and AT&T

    I agree competition is good for technology. I do not like the iphone. I was watching dog the bounty hunter and they all have iphones and it just shows how horrible the service is as a phone. Beth went to call a lead to catch a bounty and her phone kept dropping the call.

    RIM wanted market share, after the fact that the "new" touchscreen market was taking off. I feel some credit has to be given to Apple. I know Palm has had touchscreens for years, but Apple's iPhone repopularized it and RIM wanted a piece of the market.

    The flash on the iphone is no longer a problem. I heard they're going to be giving out mini mag lites with a velcro attachment on the back of the phone!

    Innovation at it's best...lol...jk.

    I don't see this as sad at all.
    It's just news, and it's not at all unexpected; we all new the 3GS iPhone was coming today.
    It might be a little sad for Apple, that they didn't get the turnout they expected, but I'm sure they're far from crying poverty.
    As for RIM, I agree with some of the other posts here, some healthy competition is always good for consumers.

    Lmao, iPhone 3Gs really isn't anything good perod. Talk about putting technology on a phone that existed since 2002. Bwahahahaha, total fail. And if your a sucker for the iPhone, good for you!

    I can understand the hardware update, but nothing to WOW about.

    Your kidding right?
    If the storm is the best RIM can do against the iPhone we're in trouble...
