Amateur Hour Is Still Over

Ian Austen, reporting for the NYT:

Research in Motion on Tuesday unveiled prototypes of the new BlackBerry 10 phone and operating system that the company hopes will be its salvation, in a form that looked quite rough around the edges. Among the features missing on the test phones given to software developers was the ability to actually make phone calls or access wireless networks.

Shocking, from the company that sells a tablet that doesn’t do email.

The incompleteness of the phone only becomes apparent when it is switched on.

Is this the dumbest sentence I’ve read all day, or is The New York Times getting a sense of humor?

Update: That sentence has been (wisely) removed from the article, but it was there when I linked it.
