A look back at things we were told the BlackBerry "will never have"

I have fond memories of all the BlackBerry devices I've used over the years.  Back in the summer of 1998 my first RIM device was called the 'interactive messenger' -- it was similar to the BlackBerry device but had a couple of interesting features that were quite popular; "text-to-voice" and "text-to-fax" allowing you to compose a message and have it delivered by fax or by Stephen Hawking via...

Dear RIM Santa: All I want for Christmas is better calendar sync

To begin, I love my BlackBerry and yes I would consider myself a fanboy of sorts.  The BlackBerry was my first connected to the web device going back to my beloved 950 and it's AA-battery.  Unlike some device fanboys, I'm secure enough to point out when I believe there is a shortcoming in the feature list.  We're always reading about people's wish lists for the BlackBerry. Some want cooler...
