The Blackberry Curve and Nokia E61

May 3rd, 2007

RIM just announced the Blackberry 8300 called the Curve.

Blackberry 8300 The Curve

But lookit here…

Nokia E61

One of the reasons for the Nokia E61’s popularity was that it did not have a camera. A lot of businesses do not allow camera phones in the offices. The Blackberry 8300 has one which may prevent executives from owning one.

Of course, geeks and other early adopters who feel that a 3.2mp camera is essential will disagree with me.

    Actually, my point was that early adopters will accept anything even a 3.2mp camera just to be first (hence the term “early adopters”).

    My other point was that Blackberry should have come out with a more radical design rather than something similar to the aging but still good Nokia E61.

    On that note, I am looking forward to a PDA phone which I can text with one hand and has no camera.
