its like a "culture shock" to me, i dont like the design, there must be at least 70% renaissance and transition from the original blackberries.

I guess Developers at Blackberry must be burning in chairs to see their creation handled like this. Even more so the marketing team will be pissed off to see this video. congratulations to the person who posted this video you have hit the blackberry marketing team below the belt and all the subcontractors for blackberry who will run into some rough weather.

Have you thought about the people who will get fired for this before posting it.

Anyways the phone looks relay cool.

Maybe they're going the Nokia (or Vertu) way and trying to sell ordinary phones in expensive shells to people with more money than the rest of us.

Its amazing what a large market exists for such tens-of-thousands-of-dollars phones.
Its time RIM tried to cash in on it.

OMG. in my opinion, it looks like a mash up of nokias e61 and x3-02 touch and type... looks kinda ugly for me especially the space key which kinda resembles someones underwear. i would just stick to my BB bold 9300 at the moment and wait for BB to release a much better device. Like seriously, BB has somehow lost the uniqueness of its mobile design and kinda copies here and there... D:

Well, love it or hate it, at least this design is doing something that all the other models are not for Blackberry, generating buzz and discussion!

Not impressive. changed plastic to metal don't make any hu-ha except making it heavier. Your shirt pocket will sink due to extra weight.
