This device had my very interested until I read that it would launch on AT&T. What a disappointment. RIM might as well dig a hole in the ground, and bury it now!

Yeah let's launch it on VZ like the Storm 1 and Storm 2 so that within a month it can be buy one get one free because sales were so pitiful. The Storms were forgotten faster than the Motorola Rokr 1 back in 2005. That's pretty quick.

the storms sold quite well for like 6-8 months and were backordered for over a month. the bogo was on all blackberries. yea, know what ur talking about.. lol I dunno, id have to play with it to get exited about it. I'd probably wait for the 2nd or 3rd update before concidering it so they can work out all the bugs on a brand new system.

Thats only because the storm 1 was garbage. A real setback for RIM. Storm 2 is a solid device, however its impact was muffled by the launch of the Droid. I sell verizon and have used the phone on a demo line and it is an exceptional phone. Once the 9800 gets on verizon I think it will compete with the droid devices, hopefully they can increase the size of their app store though

Yeah, bring this thing to Sprint. Or better yet, let's have SIM cards for CDMA. Enough of this stuff. Also, "half-backed"? Try 'half-baked'. Which it was.

I agree...release it on Sprint too. I think the Tour went to every carrier. Enough of this exclusivity stuff we saw with the Storm on Verizon. Share the love!! I hope they deck this thing out with some horsepower since they are touting the multimedia and enhanced browser experience. No sense in updating the OS if it's still running on same old hardware from before. Let's get 1GB of RAM/ROM or 8GB or more of internal storage in this sucker!! C'mon Blackberry!!

This reminds me of the Palm pre. It was supposed to change the game. It had a nice OS, but it just never managed to get the popularity vote. I hope that RIM learns from Palm and their previous game changer “Storm”.

RIM needs a winner, they're phones all currently suck. Everyone I knew that had a Storm threw that shit at one point of time or more. This OS 6 better be good.
