Colossally stupid move.
If the iPad was received as “an oversized iPod Touch” by critics, then this is just… I dunno, a Celio Redfly with a processor? JKonTheRun on the Celio: “Not the solution you were looking for,” by the way.
Worse! It’s actually just a Palm Foleo, three years and no innovations later.
A larger screen and keyboard. Okay, those are appealing. WiFi and Bluetooth. Okay, those might be useful, except that they’re not since they’re ONLY used to connect to your BlackBerry. You see, you can only DO anything of any value with this device - connect to a network and/or the Internet, say - through your BlackBerry phone. Why do you need Bluetooth and WiFi to do that? I have no clue.
What’s that you say? You don’t have a BlackBerry? Congratulations. Move along. Nothing to see here. Not now, not in “early 2011” when they are supposed to hit shelves, but will more likely hit “the fan.”
