Now, I really want one after reading all of that love.
The other week I was at the Retail Council of Canada's national conference, Store 2007, and met Jim Balsillie - the co-CEO of RIM (BlackBerry). I was happy to note that he (like me) was sporting the BlackBerry 8800. I could not imagine how I would have felt knowing that he had some next generation device BlackBerry that I could not buy.
That feeling of satisfaction is all but gone now after seeing the iPhone in video action and scanning people's thoughts in the Blogosphere.
Good on Apple for delivering a product that really has - even the most skeptical - people talking.
