In this age of smart phones and fast paced technology, RIM's brand once considered an elite class in cellular technology with their BlackBerry Messenger being a hallmark of business persona, BlackBerry has failed to evolve at the rate which is demanded by modern day standards. BlackBerry Bold 9000 backs up my aforementioned claim. This phone is a typical BlackBerry handset with nothing new. Average performance, average battery life, average camera, I agree it is a phone intended for use by business class and not created for entertainment purposes but today's businessmen prefer a phone that can do much more than just place calls, IM, and e-mailing. The small screen is a thing of past and lack of touchscreen makes it an incredibly poor choice.
