Instead of having two different models on the gsm version, RIM should have a single device with all bands "HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100" so users don't have to worry about switching between carriers. Like in Toronto, Canada switching from Rogers Wireless to WindMobile requires a phone with "AWS 1700mhz" band it's really retarded. Also RIM should build a common OS and RIM should control the updates not carriers, because right now not every carrier do the updates at the same time some. It's a real big deal.
so is this an upgrade to the 9000? bb users will be so happy! the torch is not worth the money...

If you look at the pictures and compare to the first BOLD (which I believe is a more direct revamp) you will see that there is a lot of physical changes, but what is more important is what it can do, and from the look of things, it looks like its gonna do wonders.
Anonymous, 03 May 2011why doesn not black berry produce simple touchscreen smartphone without any key like othre com... moreBecause one of RIM's strong points is and always be their QWERTY keyboard. Its epic! They failed monumentally with the touch-screen thing. They are sticking to what they know while making a little compromise on the side. I think this is a beautiful and sensible mix.
I have been waiting for RIM to properly re-make the BOLD. This is exactly what they should have done since, all the other BOLD's didnt just cut it, I think they finally got the message. This new BOLD, from the look of it, is going to be awesome!
Is this going to be the same size (width) as the bold 9000? Because that's way too big!!

1- in the specifications that released by gsmarena , you can see tha... moreregarding your comment post, i can agree and disagree with some points. in response to all your 6 comments in order:
1. GSMArena may not have enough information on this new model yet, so you might wanna check them every now and then for new updates on the specification.
2. as mentioned, GSMArena doesn't have enough information so we also don't really know exactly how long is it's standby-/talk-time are.
3. i can agree on having the HDMI TV-out port. it's quite useful for a businessman cos he don't have to bring his laptop or pendrive to present, rather he just need his BB with all the necessary cables in order to present.
4. u don't necessarily need to use your finger to operate on the touchscreen. you can instead use the optical trackpad located between the BB button and back-arrow button, or if RIM is to create and sell a capacitive stylus specifically designed for BB only.
5. it's what a BB should be. half QWERTY keypads and half screen. the touchscreen is just an added feature.
6. for the Torch, i'm not interested in it so i wouldn't want to comment on that. exactly what sort of improvement do you want RIM to do anyway?
why doesn not black berry produce simple touchscreen smartphone without any key like othre companies?i think it is a good idea for incresing the selling
Only setback here is 1230 mAh battery. All others are good. Come one RIM, I really want this but less juice for bigger touchscreen doesn't make sense!
bbb, 03 May 2011I have 2 questions please someone answer : 1: What is the difference between 9900 and 9930 ..w... moreregarding your question, the difference between 9900 and 9930 is that the 9900 can be used for normal 2G/3G lines whereas the 9930 is for CDMA which isn't the normal 2G/3G system, probably extra-ordinary. well, which is better? depend on the type of line you are using. either normal or CDMA. if you're using normal, get the 9900. if CDMA, get the 9930

1- in the specifications that released by gsmarena , you can see that there is not any Divx 0r Xvid player , 9780 and 9800 alrwady have these pplayer format
2- the battery is weaker , this could be that BB has improved the efficiency of the phone .
3- they need also to arrange a video out port for watching video on tv
4- will the icons on the screen big enough to bee pressed and activated , noting that the screen os only 2.8 inch big ??????
5- i love thhis step , but notice that SE had aleady this concept of querty keypad and touch in their W7 mobile model ,, so BB is little late for this
6- i would love to see the BB Torch improved since it has more to do with the both world , , media & business
bbb, 03 May 2011I have 2 questions please someone answer : 1: What is the difference between 9900 and 9930 ..w... moreCheck in the General section of Specifications ....9930 supports CDMA & 9900 GSM only
bbb, 03 May 2011I have 2 questions please someone answer : 1: What is the difference between 9900 and 9930 ..w... moreI believe 9930 is the US version ... one thing for sure, the difference is in the network usage.
9900: GSM 850/900/1800/1900, Tri-Band HSDPA
9930: GSM 850/900/1800/1900, CDMA 800/1900, Dual-Band HSDPA
