Interesting how Sprint is pricing the 9930 at $199 for a 2 year contract from the get-go. How long will it be before VZW drops the pricing on their 9930? Maybe less than a month for the VZW customers to wait....

You have fun with your pre3 which has no support/apps, a single core processor, and a dead operating system.

I'm a big BlackBerry fan, but my bigest gripe has always been the speed of, well, everything. I'm looking forward to an upgrade to either the Bold 9930 or the Torch 9850. Biggest issue with me is which one! They both seem pretty speedy and I'm hoping for a device that can finally keep up with ME! I've tried all the other platforms and none of the other ones support my needs. The Torch looks like it does and also with that nice screen room to play also. But can I give up my keyboard? Will have to try both out first to see. I am a PlayBook owner, (and typing this on it in fact), and I must say I'm getting pretty good at it. So might not be too hard of a transition....

The Torch 9850 is what RIM should have made a long time ago.

These all should sell, but I cannot help but think a dominate company would have had these on the market several months ago. RIM is not as bad off as a lot of analysts say, but they are not in a position of strength, either. I really, really like the Torch 2 for AT&T and think it will sell well, and I think Blackberry fans will flock to the Bolds. Not sure why any one would pick the touchscreen BB over an Android, iPhone or a Mango W7. On the bright side, if they do not perform well the 2 top dogs at RIM may be forced out and someone with an actual plan for the future may be put in place which will keep RIM competitive and an independent company. That can only help competition and choice worldwide.
