The Dakota has a similar look and feel as the Bold, but this one packs a punch in the specs. It has HD video recording, NFC, 3G Mobile hotpspot, magnetometer, quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, Tri-band UMTS, 5-megapixel camera with HD video recording, camera flash, image stabilization, 4GB of built-in storage, 768MB of RAM, 2.8-inch VGA 640×480 capacitive screen, WiFi b/g/n on 2.4 GHz and 5GHz frequencies, microUSB port, Bluetooth, accelerometer, proximity sensor, BlackBerry OS 6.1, and it is 10.5mm thin.

    Impressive hardware, using a operating system from the dark ages, and a product strategy that completely cripples their ability to effectively compete.

    On competition: As for development, what does that make it? 23 different screen resolutions to write software for? None of which have significant market share on their own, so not only is writing code to support BB painful, you have to do a lot more work to get to the larger BB market share. Users can't find apps that match their particular model. The number of apps for BB is in aggregate, a small fraction of what is available on alternative platforms, and per model, not even a tick on the chart.

    And they wonder why the iPhone has 10s of thousand more applications than BB???

    The same market fragmentation that broke UNIX from being the dominant player, is the de facto strategy for BB.

    The reason that Southwest Arilines remains profitable: one aircraft model, one set of flight crews, one set of maintenance crews, one set of spare parts. Product diversity only works where you have sufficient market share in each diverse area, to make it financially viable.
