People are falling over themselves trying to decide whether this is going to be Bold-branded or Storm-branded. I see no reason why they shouldn’t launch as a whole different line — a tweener model. I mean, you’ve got keyboard-on-face, you’ve got no keyboard, and now you’ve got keyboard-underneath. What could be a clearer three-pronged attack on the mobile world? A budget Bold, a sweet all-purpose Storm 3, and then something in between, for wafflers. Lots of wafflers out there.
