The touchscreen-only phone was a good idea. A very good idea, in fact. So it’s only natural that the rest of the world is still catching up.

Blackberry’s latest model is definitely riding in the wake of a certain much-heralded, much-reported, Jobs-endorsed model we won’t bother to mention, but it has a certain charm all its own, including a remarkably solid email platform. Which was supposed be the point…right?

Plus, you won’t have to bother with AT&T.
