Shiny

by Volker Weber

Something remarkable happened yesterday. A waiter in a restaurant asked me what brand of mobile phone I was using. He had spotted it when I set the ringer to mute. He obviously liked the looks of the Pearl. I guess this has never happened before with any handheld from RIM.

Don't you mean "something rimarkable"? ;)

I've had a number of questions from people at conferences who spot my 8700 - its quite a snazzy unit as far as the qwerty models go.

That would be where the geeks meet. But this was no geek.

I've gotten a couple of comments on my Treo650. This is the only phone I've ever owned that has gotten a comment from anyone.

The Pearl is surely snazzy - much more so than earlier RIM offerings.

This might of course also be due to the fact that the average Blackberry user does anything in the world to make bystanders notice that he/she's using a Blackberry, since to many of the users (at least the early birds) "I'm using a Blackberry" translated to "I'm important".
