So apparently, according to, this ugly new BlackBerry is actually real:

Behold RIM's new BackBerry "Knight" -- egads! (Source:

To me, it looks a lot like this “educational” toy I had in the 1980s:

Dataman, antediluvian educational toy

Dataman, "educational" toy from my youth

Ah yes, Dataman, a toy that let me drill my basic arithmetic skills all while leaving me pining for some real video game action. Kinda sad, really.

Oh well, nice to know RIM is going back to the future for their design choices! Hope whoever buys this fugly piece of phone finds it more entertaining than Dataman was.
