With regard to today's announcement about a forthcoming "virtual BlackBerry UI" application suite on Windows Mobile devices, not everyone seems to be all that jumping for joy about the concept.   

"No, no, no!," writes David, a commenter on U.K.-based The Register's Reg Hardware site.

David then qualifies that remark by indicating he had hoped this news would be that BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion "would," as he puts it,  "develop a HANDSET that would run Windows Mobile. Very stylish.

"Why the heck do we want to run BB software on a WM phone, which is otherwise free to run?," asks David, presumably speaking for many.

"Go back and design a phone, which has an 'optional' BB style interface, but with RIM style and ergonomics - which is, of course, the best," he adds.

And just another barb before he goes: 

"And no bloomin' BES server in the way. Thankyouverymuch."

"Bloomin.' I love British slang. Far more creative than ours.
