TechCrunch Clowns RIM for an unreleased product. They make the comparison to the Blackberry Storm debacle, but should RIM be slammed for gear in a different category that has not even hit the street yet? Sometimes I think these kinds of articles are self fulfilling. Yeah, trying to release their slate device to a theoretically friendly business user base, when they really need to make an initial splash with the consumer segment ala Apple could possibly be a mistake. This strategic placement stuff is interesting, but does not speak to the quality of the product. I'd like to reserve judgement until we at least see the thing running. A misstep in launch audience could be overcome by a device that delivers enough of what people want, enough of the time.
