Blackberry vs. iPhone: when will it come to a head?

The buzz is all iPhone, all the time, but RIM still has its tricks. Just last week, inventor James Dyson, proud owner of both machines, explained why he hasn’t thrown his away – “It’s horrid looking … but emailing on it is fantastic and the software is very good, with cut and paste.” And today, RIM announced new love with Japan’s biggest cellular carrier:

NTT DOCOMO, INC. announced today that on August 1 it will launch the BlackBerry® Internet Service for direct connection to the Internet without the need for a dedicated server, responding to requests from individuals, as well as small to midsize businesses, who want a simple, convenient, low-cost system for Web browsing and e-mail with their BlackBerry 8707h™ smartphones in Japan.

Will RIM’s focus on better internet access make a difference? Bearing in mind the recent rumors of an iPhone with a hardware keyboard, it would be nice to see smartphone high noon as quickly and violently as possible.
