RIM needs to have something super slick coming out with OS6... and the devices better start offering more business-friendly features like hotspot (not to be confused with fido's hot spots), wifi b/g/n (know this is already in the spec pipeline), longer battery life for those of us on the go (6-8 hours of actual battery use when utilizing push and or bluetooth is not enough to avoid having an extended OEM battery available) and more dual-network technology devices like the 9630 and 50 (amongst others). It would be nice to reduce the boot time from 11 minutes to 3 as well... Thoughts?

Knew the torch would get announced... wonder if they will say anything regarding the black pad.. saying it even existed in the first place.

Pretty cool live feed... Too bad this great new BB will be on a crap network... Hopefully LTE will level the playing field. OS6.0 looks great!
