so you're the guy who wants to buy one....

I would buy one.... If it was tradeable for a Xoom or Ipad at no cost.

Waste of ours and BB time... just die out and become a background email service already... the years of attempts at devices are growing more and more pathetic.

I hope in addition they add/fix the following:

-Major CODEC compatibility (I'd like to see an app that adds codecs too if possible like K-lite)
-Bridge doesn’t detect media files stored in my phone. It'd be nice if they added the ability to transfer/copy files back and forth as well.
-Can't see/send sms/mms messages
-Needs Swype
-Universal Search like OS6/7
-Turn-by-Turn voice guided GPS (I'd even be willing to pay for an App that can save the maps and updates on the PB as well)
-Blackberry App world needs a back button in the MY WORLD in order to go back to the original page you were last at.
-Spell Checker & add to Dictionary option like my phone.
-File managing for my apps and bookmarks. Be able to rename my bookmarks and arrange them in folders like Windows)
- That "Dot" in Android that easily helps you fixes misspelled or change words.
- USB hosting to connect external devices like printers, Digital cameras and external hard drives.
-Camera Zoom when using the video camera
-Camera needs to shoot pictures quicker- feels sluggish to take pics
-Silverlight
-Native Email, Calendar, BBM
-Yahoo Messenger, Skype and OoVoO- what good is the front facing cam if you can't put it to good use!
