It strikes me that if your company is falling apart due—at least in part—to outdated hardware, getting rid of your highest-quality and yet also most budget-friendly item is not in the company's best interest. Does anybody else agree? Granted, the 32GB and 64GB versions will still be made, and most people want more space when possible—I know I do. But by that same token, I would venture to say that “most people” also want to spend as little as humanly possible, and are more than willing to reuse an old SD card—again, I know I am. Does anybody else feel the same way? Thoughts, anyone?

Yeah it doesn't seem to make sense ,i only popped for one because they were 199$ . Its fine for me for couch surfing and i just use one of the apps to stream from my laptop. I realize its only 16GB and just treat it as such. I think RIM is too late to the party especially when Samsung is launching its new Galaxy and Apple's iphone 5 is just around the corner.Time will tell.
