I saw it yesterday ... 9900 is amazing, so light, big keyboard, but a little bit expensive, I guess it is better to hold on a couple of months before you buy it...
The phone is definitely an improvement over the previous BB models but l am really frustrated from the battery life...cannot take along even for a day.
So l expect that RIM will use a smaller battery lets say 700mAh on the next model to keep this unbelievable tradition that is leading to reduce the battery capacity on every new model
Another bold move by RIM to take their market share to a even lower level. This phone has nothing but only looks. Price is exorbitant and features are as good as nothing.I feel its better RIM sell itself to windows o Google o even may be some Chinese company.
Anonymous, 23 Aug 2011I do not agree with you its is not easier to type on a touchscreen,,touchscreens are hell to u... moreIt is much easier to type on touch screen than keyboard if have practiced and use to it, why would you then want buy 9900 if you think touch screen not easy to use just keep using your 9700. Not everyone think same of course like some people like you can keep going and keep Blackberry market share which they gone Down to number 3rd place from 1st place.
Market agree with my comment by Android touch in first place and iPhone touch in 2nd place. Read Gsmarena daily news. Plus right now 9900 sell for $799 and Galaxy sell for $599.
Blackberry advantages are over their old model but not over their competions. Blackberry system is old compare to OS Android and ISO 4 and limited applications.
Does anyone know if I get this phone from another carrier that uses a sim card and unlock it, would this phone work on the Mobilicity network?
I am in Australia and Optus has just brought out this phone on $79 plan. and they claim it has "exceptional battery life" ?? i read comments here negative about battery. whats true? how long does it really last on a moderate usage? i message a lot. and could be on msn and Facebook half a day too. would it drain the battery badly?? would it even last a day?
Joe53, 23 Aug 2011I use iPhone, Galaxy S2, and Blackberry 9780. If I would like touch screen phone use my iPhone... moreI do not agree with you its is not easier to type on a touchscreen,,touchscreens are hell to use..Why bother with your comment when you have 2 other fones.just dont buy 9900 we will instead..
I use iPhone, Galaxy S2, and Blackberry 9780. If I would like touch screen phone use my iPhone or Galaxy and no use 9860 since not offering anything more and actualy less.
Want use phone with Keyboard the 9780 is good enough and 9900 nothing more offer beside smaller touch screen than other two phone which I have and why would of want smaller touch screen with keyboard? It is easier to type with touch screen than keyboard. The Samsung Galaxy Pro and HTC ChaCha not successful with same idea of 9900. Beside 9900 is bigger than 9780. Prefer 9780 over this device. So, no reason for me to change my 9780 with bigger and more expensive 9900.
So, thanks Blackberry and do not think these few new phone good enough to make anyone change to these few devices. I am disappoint as long user of BB this is all I am getting after 2 years.

bigz, 21 Aug 2011Dear Idiots CEO's at RIM:
Please fire the people who made and designed this device.
For ... moreHey,
You should not be derogatory to these guys. Had they been idots, we would not have the present revolution in smartphone. We should give due credit to these companies.
