When the original Blackberry Pearl debuted it was a hit. It converted a lot of users for RIM. Not necessarily business users but regular users looking for a sleek phone with a lot of functionality. Instead of trying to compete with the Apple iPhone why not improve on one of your best selling devices? Forget the Curve or Thunder, I think RIM has a sleeper hit on their hands.
