What carrier do you have? I have sprint and I looked to see if it was even on the blackberry website but it says that it's "coming soon". Are their any downfalls to the blackberry 9900 (or 9930 if you have that one)? This will hopefully be my first blackberry and I want to love it. Thanks!

RIM (and many other companies) needs to stop this announcing and then release during the summer crap.

Announce the phones when they are ready to go out immediately. No one wants to wait.

This looks nice.. I might replace my existing Bold with this one, but it still won't replace my iPhone. Sorry.

Wow... I hated my old Blackberry, but this phone makes me want to take a second look. That is a really compelling spec sheet and the newer BBOSs are pretty nice.

So excited about the first 4G BlackBerry smartphone. Latest rumor I heard is that the next iPhone to come out will not even be 4G. Glad to really see BlackBerry getting its act together by bringing out a device that will compete with Android and the iPhone. The Torch was a good attempt by RIM to compete in that market but unfortunately, the Torch had some problems. If the iPhone 5 does not have 4G capability, Apple may as well just leave the phone business.

I am excited that Rim is releasing a new product. However, I hope their BES plan reduces otherwise bye bye rim! $40 for 500 MB in Canada is outrageous for emails and browsing! This will determine whether I am a future Rim customer.
