RIM Shot

RIM comes home.

The worst-kept secret in geekdom is no longer a "secret" - RIM has finally made the official announcement that their next-gen Blackberries will be returning to an Intel chipset. The original 857 and 957 'berries were based on an older Intel chip, so this is more of a homecoming than anything. Intel's shiny new mobile communications processor is called "Hermon" and yes, everyone will be calling it "Herman". Deal with it.
