Frenny Bawa gives Nokia a Verbal Smackdown

Frenny Bawa3 300x253 Frenny Bawa gives Nokia a Verbal SmackdownWell the headline would normally have read, “BlackBerry 8250 Launches in India”, but after reading the article (Read Article) I personally thought that Frenny Bawa should get top billing.

Frenny Bawa is the Research in Motion (RIM) vice-president in India and boy is she a firecracker.  When asked whether the release of the BlackBerry 8250 was in reaction to the Nokia E-series phones, she responded with “We are pioneers in smartphones.  We do not need to react to any market development.”  Take that Nokia!  You aren’t even a blip on the radar of Frenny Bawa.

The other fascinating thing about the article was the mention that the BlackBerry 8250 would come in different colors.  Really, different colors?

Can someone help me with this, why in the heck is RIM releasing a new line of phones with 320×240 screen?  Isn’t that so Curve 8330?  I personally have the Tour and when you put it up against my wife’s 8330 the difference is stunning.  So back to the original question, why?  Does the screen size make that much difference in cost?

Here are the specifications for the 8250, in case anyone cares:

  • 2.46-inch TFT Touchscreen with a 320 x 240 pixel resolution
  • 109 mm x 60 mm x 13.90 mm (L x W x D) and weighs 106 grams (including battery)
  • Wi-Fi
  • a touch-sensitive optical track pad
  • feature dedicated media keys (first BlackBerry Smartphone to have these keys)
  • 256MB Flash memory and, microSD/SDHC memory card slot (up to 16GB and 32GB cards when they launch)
  • a 512Mhz next generation processor
  • 2 megapixel camera
  • Bluetooth (2.0)
  • 3.5 mm stereo headset jack
  • DivX, XviD video support
