According to Lazaridis, the Co-founder of Research in Motion, Blackberry manufacturer. Here's the quote: - "Lazaridis also dismissed the importance of touchscreen phones, saying that touch-only devices such as the iPhone arent that popular. While its important to appease the consumer and the carrier, who clearly want a touchscreen device, he believes most of these customers are shifting to QWERTY". That's an amazingly stupid statement from a CFO, imo, the iPhone's success is well known in every corner of the world. We're all switching to physical QWERTY keyboards ... really? Blackberry/RIM does already seem like the 'old microsoft' in a way, stale OS, complacent thinking, it's all interesting. EDIT - They played back the transcript from Lazaridis' speech and the reported story wasn't accurate, the Toronto reporter changed the story, Engadget and Gizmodo note the corrected transcript as well.
