I applaud RIM for trying so hard with OS 6, but at this point they are still years behind even Nokia when it comes to good smartphone interfaces. Granted, I love my Curve 8520, but I also resign myself to its limitations. I'm used to the BlackBerry interface and I personally enjoy its complexity, if only for the wealth of options, settings and tweaks available. What I don't enjoy is the substandard browser, the fact that most GSM RIM devices are still EDGE only, and the severe lack of quality apps.

I still think RIM should embrace the Android OS and put their own superb email and networking technologies on top of it. The current RIM phones are more than capable of running Android, and to me it just seems to be a no-brainer.
