RIM co-CEO Mike Lazaridis, regarding the glossy-black-front-with-silver-bevel-edge BlackBerry Bold:
This is three years in the making. So I’m sorry but this wasn’t a response
to another device. Either that or we have a time machine somewhere, or some
kind of magic crystal ball or something. This was actually designed three
years ago and the actual physical design of this product — I have the
original models from 2006.
