Research in Motion (RIM) has tried to piggy back off of the iphone 4 antennaegate news and use it to promote their new phone, the blackberry bold 9800. Well they announced their new phone and has left everyone wondering if they truly intend to compete with the likes of the apple iphone and the google android phone.
The big problem for the blackberry is that most iphone users don't want to switch while only about 40% of blackberry users are thinking of keeping the same type of phone. This means that close to 60% of blackberry users are considering another type of smart phone.
Blackberry is hanging onto the only thing that made them unique which was their reliable keyboard that was comfortable with all users and seemed to be the only keyboard based phone to survive.
