    If RIM really are calling in quits in the tablet market, they should drop the prices even more. I don't think this second price drop is going to sell many more units then its selling now, but that's just my opinion

    Sorry RIM, even if you were selling them for 50p, I will not touch one. They are rubbish because your software is rubbish. Or at least, if your Blackberry software is anything to go by, I will need to pull the battery out of this every day, it'll take 10 minutes to boot properly and your battery life will be average. No No, I'm not making the mistake of handing over my money to you ever again...
     
  10. $99 without a rebate and we got a deal
     
  11. Are they still doing that HP thing where they say: "In coming months we will introduce/support . . ." Then they shitcan the whole thing?
