With all the lost confidence from consumers over the last models (Storm, Tour, Bold) and OS updates (5.0) and the overpowering dominance of Android, its going to take alot more than copycatting to get back into the niche!! So many customers (NOT ALL!!) have given up on Blackberry, and switched over to something not as volatile... Just my perspective, but with Android 2.1 and iPhone 4 (which may suck, according to the articles on this site!! It may just be for the lower end users rather than innovating), and soon Windows 7... Blackberry doesnt have the edge they used to have. Of course, they wont go away all together, and hopefully the new OS will be as successful as their competitors... We'll see!! Good luck RIM!! :)

Actually, the Blackberry BOLD with AT&T was a great success - if anything failed it was their models with Verizon - In their 4Q stats they mentioned they were able to survive without much business from their Verizon customers.....and now they are soon releasing BOLD to other carriers....

Actually, you're the Moron. Yes, Verizon does sell the most Blackberry's in the country, but if you had your facts straight, Verizon has by far the greatest return rate of Blackberry's in the country, mostly from the Storm 1 and Tour. Taking that into account, AT&T actually sells the most Blackberries to people who keep them. RIM released a statement, and they are making the most profits from AT&T in the United States. How are you going to argue against that when RIM has the statistics to prove it. Numbers don't lie...

am a blackberry user, but i never like its graphical ui, this one still looks the same to me... and more importantly hopefully the OS itself is better, i mean it doesn freeze or have glitches as i'm experiencing though not often, but quiet a few times... but bb is one fantastic communication/messaging device......sure this OS 6.0 can bring us excellent browsing experience like other platforms....

I love blackberry, but they need to get with the times.. I know this is to be compeditive but its in my opinion a year or two too late... I was a avid believer in blackberry till more iconic phones came out. When i was using one i felt like i was behind in times lol.. Hense my move to the DROID... Sorry blackberry your too late to pull me back now.

I think that the blackberry OS right now looks ok. Just that some of the icons look exactly alike. And also, they just did a visual upgrade from the last OS that was on phones like the pearl 8100. The same icons, just looking more modernized. It was just your everyday, "boring" interface that was organized in a simple way. Now, it will turn them into a device that also focuses on media or something, while keeping B.B.'s business standards.

This operating system is the same, a few minor tweeks. The main problem with the storm series, and all the BB lately is relability, they are always freezing or malfunctioning, blackberry used to be know for their reliablity, not anymore. And the Boring GUI doesn't help them hopefullly their browser is the biggest change with this OS, We won't know till it's in the hands of consumers.
