The BlackBerry has evolved tremendously, hasn't it? I'm very eager to see what will appear at CES 2009. My prediction is that most future BlackBerry models will have a touch screen plus a hardware keyboard. They will look similar to a Treo, but will be wider and thinner (bigger keys compared to the Treo).

The big question in my mind is: will the BlackBerry become a dominant player among healthcare professionals? We all know how about its popularity among corporate users. Doctors, pharmacists, and nurses have traditionally relied on Palm and Windows Mobile. Now you have the iPhone gaining substantial momentum, especially with the availability of Epocrates on the iPhone. What about BlackBerry?

  1. It probably depends on availability of Blackberry OS apps that medical professionals find useful.
