RIM Releases BlackBerry OS 6 Video

Jay Yarow:

It’s obvious what RIM wants you to think when you watch this video: “Wow, this is kind of like an iPhone.” That’s because the whole video is showing people dancing around, pretending to zoom around a big BlackBerry with a touch user interface.

The big problem with that line of logic is that RIM does NOT have a good, popular touchscreen phone, and is hardly a touch-focused company. The only touchscreen BlackBerry, the Storm, is garbage compared to an iPhone.

And I thought RIM co-CEO Mike Lazaridis just told us that people are abandoning touchscreen phones and going back to hardware keyboard QWERTY phones?
