There a ton more photos at the ibby03 link above.

I think it looks like quite a handsome device.

I’m cold on it though.

Why is this? I don’t quite know. I think, perhaps, it’s because of the age old Blackberry OS. I like to see things updating — not just the case, and the technology, but the actual OS — more than what looked very much like a 20 minute coding makeover (like with the 8700).

I’ll certainly look closely to see what it offers.

No camera on the back?


So handsome, but perhaps just a weeeeee bit too bling for me.
