RIM patents the Rotoberry

24 Jul

A patent application recently made public shows BlackBerry maker Research In Motions plans for a BlackBerry handheld with a rotating display.

There are several variants of the concept device all featuring a display that can rotate to reveal a QWERTY keypad.

It might sound good but out experience with phones with swivelling displays has not been amazing and based on that we certainly don’t think it’d be a good idea to implement on a business phone.

If RIM really wants a new form-factor, it should look no further than the HTC Touch Pro2 for inspiration.
