Is RIM about to launch the BlackBerry Bold 9780 with BlackBerry 6?
When a handset gets within 18 months of launch, a UAProf must be filled out. Here we have what could be a refresh of the Bold as a BlackBerry 9780 has appeared on a filing from July 20th. Featuring a physical QWERTY keyboard and a 480 x 360 screen, the device is Wi-Fi enabled. And as if the filing isn't enough proof, we now have a picture of the device, looking all spiffed up and ready to go. To fill out some more of the specs, the device has 512MB of RAM and most likely sports a 5MP camera. Outside of a darker color on the bezel, the newer OS build and some minor changes, what we have here is basically a refreshed Bold 9700. However, judging from what we've seen of the new OS and assuming that it has the new WebKit browser on board, the 9780 should be able to quench a mighty strong thirst.

i swear RIM must be real proud of their reputation for making boring phones that all look the same. xD

And for releasing phones with so called "New Features" that have been available on other models for months now!

They have a target audience / niche. Let them live their success and if necessary make the changes to meet customer demands. RIM is a business phone, I have yet to see a phone that can compare when it comes to email.

You're exactly right, I went from the Tour to the Samsung Moment (Android) and the email is so inferior. Everything else is an improvement over the Blackberry, but until someone else makes another server like theirs, they'll be #1 on email. @Scott - Isn't that exactly what Apple's done with the last 3 generations of the iPhone?
