I would love to see people on the subway in New York using their Blackberries like this. Wonder how long it would last before they got beat back into normalcy. There also isn't a lot of room to dance on a subway either.
As an adult, let me officially say this is a horrible commercial/marketing video. This most certainly doesn't appeal to the adult business person in me at all. The hip-hop rap style music with the dancing "business woman" is too ghetto "tween" for my taste.
Although her gestures would insinuate the system is designed for touch screen phones so you can make finger gestures like you would on an iPhone.
. This commercial really annoying to me. It would have worked better without all the dance/showing off the new features. I just wanted to see what was on the phone, everything else was a bit distracting. Anyways from what I did see it looks pretty cool, maybe the next time RIM tries to show it off I can see more of the new features.
Rim will make boatloads of money regardless because they are always geared toward corporate customers. While it is nice to have some kind of cool music interface, facebook, and twitter plugins, are useless to them and they will probably block them so the users won't use it. I know I will.
The problem with Rim is that they are still sort of a semi-closed system where people don't want to create apps for it.
Wow. "MeToo" in a business suit. Most exciting was the first dancer, but other than that it's a catch up. Much needed for BlackBerry, but not sure how exactly they could have been different as iPhone and Android are pushing a similar user experience and being too different from that could easily backfire.
