Well the release of the Blackberry 9700/Onyx at this point is hardly a secret, in fact it’s downright obvious to anyone who reads this site. However, while we’ve been calling for a November 4th/11th launch for well over a month now, BoyGenius recently received his own set of verifiable info confirming the 11th as the launch date. In the grand scheme of things that extra week won’t mean much for Blackberry lovers who have already spent days, weeks and months counting down to go time for a Blackberry 3G. As per usual Blackberry standards we expect this little phone won’t disappoint and will be everything current Blackberry lovers could want. Will it be enough to sway users from another platform? Doubtful. While Blackberry remains one of the most consistent OS’es, they have fallen by the wayside with keeping up on the current standard of browsing and other consumer oriented features. That’s not to say Blackberry isn’t a great device–it is–however it is in a definite need of overhaul. To clarify, when we say overhaul, we mean software, not hardware, as Blackberry hardware remains one of the best QWERTY experiences to date.
Regardless of my little diatribe up there, look for some Blackberry 3G goodness to grace T-Mobile’s shelves one month from now.
