Ali G Style???

Haa haa most chavs would laugh at you like a fool for that! Most of them probably don't even know who Ali G was!

Indeed Cosmo, the author was clearly trying his hardest to get down with the kidz, and he has failed in a way that will shame him, his folk and his cattle.

Well done for applying your superior knowledge of the youth of today. (and inside knowledge of chavs?) I could feel the unabated joy pour forth in your opening words.

Why thank you AC,

This is no lie... I'm actually a born and bred Croydon man. Trust me I know more about chavs than I would ever like to!

Hey, just because they don't remember where those snapping fingers originated from, it doesn't mean the yoof have stopped doing it.

I is still cool/sick/dope when it comes to my street cred! They don't call me Sir Burbia for nothing, ya know. ;-)

Just in time for summer riot season.

As for the hardware, well one can almost hear the bottom of the barrel giving way.

Seems slightly better than the classic Curve 9300, which is still in use by many of RIM's original target market. Then again, the Curve 9300 is a pretty old phone (by modern standards anyway - 2Years) and therefore those still on an old 9300 are clearly not RIMs /current/ market anyway - which signals an inherent problem with them.

For anyone coming from a Curve 9300 it sees a welcome upgrade - with twice the RAM and internal memory (a big problem on the 9300) ; an upgraded Camera with flash.

It should be £50 and that is a lot.

A Motorola Droid Pro + which goes round 10 times around any blackberry (even the high-end models) costs £138 without contract, and I would probably be available for £15 a month too.

Blackberries as they are now feel and behave archaic.

Future Blackberries will not be so archaic (probably) but will have no software.

RIP RIM.
