New Crop Of BlackBerrys

Last week we wondered what RIM wants to be when they grow up. Today they gave us an answer as they announced their new product line. RIM is a hardware company first and a software company second. Their new devices will operate on both 2 and 2.5G GSM, iDen and CDMA networks and support both data and voice. A big change from their first data/voice devices is that all the new devices supporting voice will include integrated speakers and microphones,not just ear bud mics. They are getting closer and closer to the smartphone space.
