Been waiting for the next gen of BB Bold for a long long time. I hope it comes out soon here in the U.S. Im sick of hearing about iPhones all the time.

Listen lets face it if you bought every new smart phone that ever came out you'd be broke. Iphones are cool but limited, apple doesn't work well with Microsoft windows lets not forget allot of business and schools still run off those operating systems apple costs too much extra just to get it to adapt to what you'd need. everyone says RIM is done but they signed with Google for apps it's a no brainer. I don't need dual core yet RIM makes an amazing tablet that links automatically to my blackberry phone that has more than enough power. The real phones will come out when RIM puts the power of their tablet into their phone until the I'll pay extra this thing is way too sexy. Iphone really is the new Razor from like 10 years ago

Yes I love this Phone but I have been waiting for blackberry to come out with a all touch screen phone. I heard of it storm 3 or monaco or something I really would love a all touch screen phone that is fast and that can keep up with me.

I'm happy to see the larger keypad returning to a more full-featured BB. While I've gotten accustomed to the smaller keyboard of the 9700 and then the Torch, I really miss my old roomy 8700. As for touch screens, typing is a joke (yes, including the iPhone), but it has some uses. Merging the two in the Bold chassis is a smart move.

Why can't they put face timing? Dual camera? This will beat iphone.
