RIM now allows you to trade-up to BlackBerry 7 OS devices
The good news for 'Berry users today is that RIM is adding to its models that you can purchase with a trade-in to include the new BlackBerry 7 OS handsets. Just remember that the discount will be applied to a full non-subsidized price of the model that you want. If you are not up for a 2-year contract renewal, trading in that old BlackBerry to grab a discount would certainly be worth it. One caveat. The program is available only in North America and Australia.

Are they working with carriers at all or does RIM just expect everyone to trade in a phone for an unsubsidized new BB? Save for some desperate crackberry loyalists, I can't see many screwing around with this. I haven't bothered to look at their website yet, just asking the friendly readers if they know any more
Not sure if other carriers do it the same way, if at all, but Sprint buys back most older devices for credit towards new one. Maybe it's not as much as what they're offering, but if you're due for an upgrade at 22 months, might as well skip going directly through blackberry altogether
