2) Stylus is for delicate drawings , doodling , jotting ideas etc
3) Dual SIM is not a commodity a necassity to divide you personal and professional live ,... local usage versus international usage (where you can insert a local sim and bring down your costs)

Only thing improved besides the OS is the camera which is huge. Otherwise nothing is new. BB took its previous model and iphone touchscreen style and put it into one phone. Qwerty keyboard owns touchscreen texting anyday.

anyone that hates on blackberry hates because they dont have one, or because they dont have friends......
p.s i have had all the models of the blackberry stating from the pearl to the bold 9700 and from the iphone 2g to the 4g
A Blackberry phone is the only option if you want security. Any other phone can be intercepted. That's why Saudi Arabia is forbidding Blackberry.
The only reason why I won't buy it, is its weight. How the hell can it have 160g?! Otherwise I like it very much.
This is officially the worlds most primitive device 480*360 resolution ,VGA video recording 2* the thickness of the iPhone ,under powered, what's good about this device someone tell me. Blackberry get with it ! Ur so 1998 go ahead and die already, u win the award for green products though ! U have been recycling the same devices for a decade . Sell ur pinning technology to real manufactuers and R.I.P bye bye !

cellguy, 04 Aug 2010it looks exactly like the Imate Pda2K from 7 years ago! compare it and you will see. It's a front slider, that's how far similarities go.

The SAMOLED display is something samsung has rights to and as of now samsung is the only company who are using this screen technology. This could be a different story later on as amoled has spread to htc and nokia phones etc.Dual sim, again like i said if they had an unlocked version (presumably a european alternative) i could see how this would be convenient but then again this phone is made for US standards and in my honest opinion the dual sim is a commodity. As for touch screen + qwerty im assuming you meant it to be all touch screen w/o a physical keyboard. BB is known to make their devices with a physical keyboard save for the storm 1 and 2 so not having a physical keyboard for a BB device would be "untraditional" for lack of better of words. Even the storm 1 and 2 had a somewhat tricky qwerty system with sure press technology that wasn't fully virtualized. Lastly, the stylus thing, again i think is a commodity and outdated technology for the smart phone category (not entry touch handsets like the cookie or any other touch feature phones). Reason for this is because we are seeing more capacity touch displays than resistive which windows mobile phones and early samsung and LG phones had for their earlier touch handsets. Resistive technology is more common with feature driven phones and more affordable touch devices such as the corby, gravity series, and cookie etc. I also think the new windows mobile 7 devices might be moving toward capacitive tech. seeing from the kin 1 and 2 but who knows they might still continue using resistive technology like all previous windows mobile devices.
BB, 04 Aug 2010* The hardware (casing, build quality, feel) is typical RIM — it’s great. Very solid, actually... moreits actually more than a bit heavy....been playing with it for a while...
so heavy, that i think it might break off the slider with one good drop....
