RIM shouldn't put a front facing camera in the phone, because that's not what a BB is for, a BB is for the exchange of information. The iPhone does not have proper video calling either, for face time the user must be using WiFi and can only see another person who is using an apple device, which makes the whole concept flawed. BB security is worth the phones weight in gold, the best phone input device (the keyboard) is worth the same again. These devices are well priced and give corporate users (like my self who runs 16 of them through a BES piece of mind that any data sent between devices will get there safely. BESIDES I dont know a single person who pays for their phones, we get pay monthly deals and get the phone for free, if you negotiate with the sales people at the networks they will give you (almost)anything for free.
AnonD-8044, 13 Jul 2011I use B and 71 million others because of the security RIM offers,,all heads of state use BB ..... moreso is that all your paying for in a blackberry is security? It's not like Blackberry can beat other phone brands except for BBM
Now it's time to get 4G with Front camera for Video conference.
Apple is way advance in that.
RIM is making it very very difficult to stay loyal to BBs. Perennial delays in new models are becoming the norm. In today's day and times, it takes two weeks for a new model to become outdated, and they delay handsets by months together. Does anyone have a suggestion for an alternative phone please ?
I think now is the time for Blackberry to think about UPGRADING their component! think about putting a secondary camera in current models,which would enable users to make a video call......... plz think baout it.........
The most prestigious version to be released with an remarkable touch and type combination i hope its a better combination than given in the 9800 .. cant wait to get my hands on it
Gosh! i'm tired of waiting for this phone... RIM please hurry things up a bit so we can know for sure what we are up against.
thami_ct, 08 Jul 2011when is RIM going to wake up and create a front camera, now ppl want to skype ... Facebook is ... morelike this new bold but when it comes to apps and media BB is definitely last in line
in my country we don't have much data packages for the other phones so BB is the best altirnative. i cant wait for this phone but i hope it doesn't come too expensive...
Very good phone as per the specifications, but should be value for money also< lets wait
AnonD-8044, 13 Jul 2011I use B and 71 million others because of the security RIM offers,,all heads of state use BB ..... moreSo thats the only reason why BB is overpriced 4 the security and FYI BB is hacked at india and here at UAE the hiered and idian companey to hack it too 4 security purposes. and plz dont compare SG2 with this 9900 they will never reach them...
Meehhh!!!, 13 Jul 2011some of my friendz have BB my father have one but for the sake of the price its not worth it,e... moreI use B and 71 million others because of the security RIM offers,,all heads of state use BB ..President Obama is well known for hiss BB use..I live in UK and BB are expensive but the sgs 2 are plastic toys in comparison.
I love when you swtch a BB on and it takes a while to start up,,thats the device running all the security checks for you..
NOBODY has ever hacked into a BlackBerry ever..
RIM to lauch 7 new smartfones over coming months,
I just wish they would get this one out and add TV out for presentations.
AnonD-12752, 03 Jul 2011I'm not a businessman, and I still use the Onyx! I have a lot of fun with my BB. BB not only... moresome of my friendz have BB my father have one but for the sake of the price its not worth it,every other phone have the same features u mention except for the keyboared. Am mad at this BB because its OVER PRICED 4 nothing new to give me its the same price as sammy's SG2 and it has a huge gap at the specifications.I know BB software is great but never ever 4 that price.Look at the NOKIA E6 look at its overall specifications and its price then talk...
Rubal, 13 Jul 2011The price mentioned here 1025$ is not its riginal price, thts how much some one on Ebay is ask... morebetween 500 and 600 US dollars wont b bad pricing for this phone. The issue here is the launch date. Does anyone hav any insider information coz i feel september is too far for a phone that was unveiled on May 2
The price mentioned here 1025$ is not its riginal price, thts how much some one on Ebay is asking for ..one launched ..its prcice would most probably be in between 500-600$ without contract and probably 200$ with contract in US
gigi, 12 Jul 2011there is no skype for BB :-(i don t have money to buy thi sphone
gigi, 12 Jul 2011there is no skype for BB :-(There is for Android, and with Android app player for Blackberry you would be able to use it.
