Almost every new model launched since (and starting with) the Storm has been a total disaster (my POV of course).

Once upon a time, they did one thing and did it right: the working man/woman smartphone, with a half-sized screen and a full keyboard.
They had the best usability, a well designed OS, very good battery life, enterprise integration software and so on.

Then competition caught back, teenagers started loving BBs, RIM set on this new target and they went off track.
