RIM goes big when others go small

This is what our friends north of the border get for using some second-rate market research firm. Yes, this is a giant, fully-functional BlackBerry 7520 in Nextel's store on the Vegas Strip; we're told the device is a bit uncomfortable in the pocket, but offers over 40 days of talk time and 1.5TB of internal flash to store contact information for everyone in the civilized world. If you're tall enough to reach the PTT button and establish a conversation, we imagine the speakerphone could be heard from Mandalay Bay.
