BlackBerry maker RIM is on board the touch train. Jay Yarow in Business Insider regarding RIM’s BlackBerry OS 6 video making the rounds:
It’s obvious what RIM wants you to think when you watch this video: “Wow, this is kind of like an iPhone.” That’s because the whole video is showing people dancing around, pretending to zoom around a big BlackBerry with a touch user interface.
It’s loud. And obvious. Despite RIM’s official stance regarding keyboards and touch, after much handwringing, they’ve seen the handwriting on the wall.
