    Headlines - RIM planning a touchscreen BlackBerry?

    Re: Headlines - RIM planning a touchscreen BlackBerry?

    Im a windows mobile user (TYTN II) and i love touchscreen. I think its great for quick menu navigation scrolling through pictures etc etc. After briefly using the HTC Artemis which is completely touch screen (ie no keypad at all) i could NEVER go in that direction. Having a small qwerty keypad makes keeping up with e-mails etc so much easier on the move but all these touchscreen reliant phones like the infamous I-Phone and the LG viewerty are just aweful to use.... i mean really aweful. Its awkward and unresponsive which is the last thing you want from a mobile device you pay so much money for. For a full time business user anything like that is totally unacceptable so if they do decide to make a touchscreen phone they better do a damn good job at it or make usre to have a keypad of sorts aswell.

    I am keen to have more voice in functions so buttons and keys are not always needed... but touch screen it could make a difference!
