Sorry guys I really cant help myself on this one. Constant Connect is just one of those ideas that must have sounded cooler on the drawing board but has an extremely limited purpose for existence. I really cannot see lines forming out the door for a product that forwards and caches email from your BlackBerry to your laptop while it is off. You would be better off spending money on a tethering plan or just plain tethering without a plan… Makes me wonder what RIM has been doing developing this with Lenovo for 2 whole years!
In short this may have been cool 4-5 years ago before 3G datacards were in every mobile professionals bag. Now it just seems like a useless Express Card. Maybe if it had some cool features like simpler tethering that clueless executives could use…
Well if you really feel like owning a piece of RIM & Lenovo history you can pick one up for $149 on Lenovo’s website or through some of their business partners. You can pick up more info about the device in our original article about it.
