It looks like they are just trying to copy IOS as much as possible lol.
Which isn't a bad idea, maybe if it's a little more like the iphone it will slow business users defection rate to the iphone

Well, tried BB before, what kept me from it was the bland interface. my view would probably change if RIM (finally) decided to freshen up their menus even up to the bottom layer (folders etc). But even if they really got much more attractive, I would still stick with an Android, BB doesn't really suit me after all, when you imagine a BB you imagine a dude with suit, not a student. One thing i would not buy is an iphone, for some reason I find the operating system very limited, after all, its just a bunch off applications clogged up in a so called 'home screen'

It's the best messaging device I ever used, but truthfully you get bored with it after a while. there just not enough customization options to excite me. If you've seem one BB you seem them all no matter what model it is. That OS needs an overhaul and a bigger screen. I just ditched my Bold for a tilt 2 and I haven't looked back at that blackberry since. I actually think the next storm should come with a slide out keyboard similar to the tilt 2.

I was an iphone (jailbroken to the max ) user for 1 year and a half, now i am with a blackberry 9700. Both are 2 amazing device and OS. They have their pro and cons. but, i prefer much much more BB, for all those Bb or Iphone haters, try both device before commenting these lame opinion. And for this new OS i realy cant wait for it to come out. i dont care for the new iphone os. everything that the new iphone will offer i already had it with the old os (jailbroken )

Well Blackberry OS and devices are pretty good but it's just a little outdated. Even if they come out with another breakthrough, still way behind compare to Android.

look pretty cool, but knowing blackberry and touch screen, there probably gonna be at OS 9 before they perfect it.
