one to the next one.........yawn. Seriously there is no need to upgrade a BB same thing over and over!
RIM just doesn't get it. Life has moved way beyond what RIM has to offer. Yes, yes, RIM is the leader where smartphones are concerned, but only just because the Apple iOS4 and Android platform are catching up rapidly.
RIM, Nokia and SonyEricsson need a massive change in their approach to smartphone technology. They need to stop building on antiquated technology and instead, build uber intelligent systems from the scratch.
BB OS6 is nothing but window dressing. Time is ticking and ticking fast for RIM.

at the edge out there and so far out there that the others are still playing catchup bb is not past its time, when the fox could not get the grapes he said they were sour
thanks.and have a blackberry day we love you
thanks for allowing me to comment,people and phones,for every person on the planet there is a phone to suit his or her needs,people ask for every thing from a biger screne to a biger camera batery life you name it the public ask for it from the phone companies abd they try to respond, gone are the days when a phone was just that a phone whith all the addons, ask your self how much of it do or are you going to yo use, talking and texting bb messenger are still the most used fetures on the phones, and that is not going to change any time soon, as i see it rim has built a strong product one that you can depend on BB messenger is awesome and no other company can touch it all Blackberrys world wide can talk to each other the os system is sound and you can depend on the phone it works very well, my advise to rim would be to work on a longer life battery a better back caseing seal to prevent moisture getting in and to review the bluetooth,make it easy to work with the dual sim is a good idea myself and most bizz clients i work with have two phones that you walk withall day, your personal phone and the bizz phone if they can solve that problem,it would be really great, i have a 9700 which works quite fine rim has done a great job in bringing this phone to market, the change from a track ball to track pad was great,i know you cant get it right all the time but customers want a phone to be a phone,so dont spend the money on just puttng another phone on the market, put the best that you can do with what you have on the market,invest in making the 9700 a 10000 or the blackberry mill, with 2000 amp battery biger faster processer and moisture seals by all ports and to be able to work with windows on board and if you can prevent me from having two phones go for it.Thanks
GSMArena, I think the screen resolution will be closer to 480x360, keeping in mind the screen res of recent BBs. :)
Please stop making the same devices with minor changes ,,, just bought 9700 and now this ... they all looks same ,,need change BB

blackberry is not made for a kid. it's for adults. mean real adults. not just a kid with a mustache & a big body....
Anonymous, 25 Jul 2010Do the announcement of a new BlackBerry is still exciting?that's because blackberry is still king of the business world.
Anonymous, 25 Jul 2010BB boring is it ? but it's still the smartphone to beat in the business world.
anything you iphone could do the blackberry could do better.
xxxxxx , 25 Jul 2010if you need to take great photo just get yourself a regular camera, no smartphone camera could... moreWell said. It annoys me when people harp on about getting the latest cameraphone and laughing at others with 3-5mp, when in reality, no normal person would use one for all their snaps.
This model is same with the rumour 8910 atlas..but there is no more news about atlas anymore so I think rim won't release atlas but they will change tho series..

with everyone saying that 80% blackberry owners will swap their blackberry for the new iphone 4, sadly that's yet to be seen more people are going to use blackberry instead of any other smartphone because of it security, no one have been able to hack into the blackberry os.
Anonymous, 25 Jul 2010Yes I know you are right and it is a shame. I can think of many other things I would rather ha... moreMan! You are absolutely right for dual SIM! 1 for the BB usage and acts as the primary card, while the other is for the leisure or roaming prepaid alternative...this is one thing that i do hope that will happen in the near future!
Rands, 25 Jul 2010Ja seriously, BB really need to up their specs on camera especially, 5mp JUST cuts it, they re... more"5mp JUST cuts it."
Uh, no. Two years ago we were happy with 2mp, a year before was 1.3mp. Pictures looked fine then, they look fine now. Besides, megapixels do not determine quality anyway.

A lot of people like it. Why change a design that people like? Not to mention, OS6 is more touch friendly, and RIM is focusing on only showing OS6 being used on touchscreens (promo and webkit browser demos, etc etc).
