BlackBerry Bold 9780
Once the enterprise titan, RIM has perhaps been the slowest to make dramatic change. The BlackBerry Curve and Bold series (like the BlackBerry Bold 9780 pictured here) retain excellent keyboards and RIM's hallmark security, but hew close to the typical candy bar design. The Storm and Storm II were poorly received attempts at a touch-screen-only device, and despite some appeal in the Torch, which combines a touch screen with RIM's signature keyboard, the designs, OS, and specs are too safe. While there are more handsets on the horizon, RIM has serious problems inside and out.
