So BGR released information this morning about the BlackBerry "Thunder", tagline: The Touchscreen BlackBerry we've all been waiting for.
We all remember the debates when the iPhone was released about whether it would take over the corporate market that BlackBerry has dominated for so long. The main argument against the iPhone was its on-screen keyboard. It was said that it would be difficult to quickly type out an email, without typos, using the on-screen keyboard.
I think it is quite clear that the "Thunder" is RIM's response to the iPhone. I believe that the "Thunder" is aimed at the younger "iPhone" demographic versus the corporate exec. demographic.
I'm excited that it seems to be exclusive to Verizon. I plan on testing it out when it's released... but I'm concerned that I won't like the on-screen keyboard it's sure to have.
