    Default Could this possibly be an Android taking on the Blackberry line?

    I highly doubt it, but what do you think?

    That'll be the Charm, and I've been using one for 2+ weeks, it's much closer to what a Blackberry user would want if they switch over to Android.

    Really doubt it the charm is what has a better grasp on BB users.

    Honestly, I don't know why people are saying it's only the Charm...the flipout, once, you know, flipped out (screen opened), looks very similar to the Charm, does it not? Maybe I have just been crazy and need to see more pictures of both devices, but the keyboard is really only different in terms of key placement and everything (and the navigation is on opposite sides of the keyboards of each phone)...other than those, the size and shape of the keyboards look to be about the same...couldn't these both, theoretically, be competing with RIM?

    BUT, with the (very) recent news leaks of the Droid PRO for Verizon and the Motorola Spice destined for Brazil, those two compete even more with RIM over Blackberry devices, and also a little with Palm/HP over their Pre and Pixi devices according to those who've owned those products too.

    Jonneh, because the Flipout isn't a candybar phone which is what Blackberries are commonly known for.

    Agreed.
