PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless People have often rightfully pointed out that we here at OSNews do not seem to pay a lot of attention to RIM and its BlackBerry mobile operating system. Those people are right, but it stems from the fact that I simply have never actually seen, let alone used, a BlackBerry, which makes it very hard to write about. I'm hoping this will go a little way into turning that frown upside down: today, RIM demonstrated version 6.0 of its BlackBerry operating system. And it's on OSNews' front page.

That is true. Last year I walked into a T-Mobile shop in Minneapolis, got a prepaid sim card and put it into my old Nokia E65. The guy who sold me the card said he'd never seen an E-Series phone in the wild... and offered me $500 for it. I kindly refused.

Why did you refuse? You can get unlocked E65's for close to $300 these days from the nokia website. Could have made a quick profit.
