I love dis device,it won't be a bad idea owning one as my 4th blackberry phone,thumbs up RIM.
i am sure that it is confirmed that it has a 720p hd video recording 5mp camera
does anybody find dedicated number keys can greatly boost the typing speed. most of time, messages are composed by characters and numbers, especially when you want to tell somebody your contact details. really annoying you have to switch input mode all the time. when looking at mobiles with physical keyboard, so surprised a lot of space wasted for no good reasons. and even virtual keyboards separate numbers and characters. WHY?
Had a BB 9000 until recently - great phone. Now have a 9700 - also good phone but keypad on small side for my big thumbs.
This will be my next phone, providing key pad is same or larger than 9000. plus touch (which i'm not really a fan of) for non-phone and typing interface. looks like the full business deal!!
Does anyone know if this phone has video calling ? when a blackberry with video calling?

Oh.. it's just RIM releas... moreI am not exactly a fanboy of apple but at least they have made what some what say major changes to the OS retina screen etc - this is just lazy product design by rim - their design engineers must be laughing - getting paid bucks to release the same phone again.
I thought they would never come out with a phone that truly replaces the Bold 9000. Its about time. Good job......
For all you little kids out there that need their phone to turn into a shotgun,have pages upon pages of useless free apps,watch porn on a high res screen,and let their phone tell you what you can and can't do without permission then yes...this new blackberry or any other blackberry is not for you..For the rest of us business minded/social professionals...all you need is an email..sms..BBM beast to keep you in touch with all your peeps in an instant..blackberry is not a toy..its a communicator...now go put your phone near the radio so you can find out what justin bbeiber song that it...pathetic
This is hardly RIM releasing what they already had. There are many customers who liked the size of the Bold 9000 (and haven't had a refresh since) and want a touch screen (and haven't had an option since). This is for them. I might even move up to this from my Torch 9800. I miss my left-side convenience key. Also, the Torch series just doesn't have the ultra-premium feel of a Bold.
great, a mobile phone with carbon fibre, why? faster in the corners and highter top speed? no, didnt think so. POINTLESS!!! and if the touchscreen is anything of the style of the torch then this is one phone i will avoid at all costs

Bold 9000 was the best phone i have had, so the size and shape is a welcome return for me. People whp are slating RIM are obviously just the same old sheep who have fallen onto the iPhone bandwagon. How very boring of you all! How can you say a phone is bad without seeing it for real!?
Wow!! What is it? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it superman? Oh.. it's just RIM releasing the same phone over and over again...
I thought the original bold 9000 looked ugly and this looks exactly like it with a carbon back. Pointless - they could have at least got rid of the stainless steal and make it black. Rubbish RIM.
There's absolutely no way that battery door design will be anything near the final product. It's hideous. Throw some chrome on there RIM!
are you serious blackberry? what is this, you just took the 9000 and changed the back and the processor, i still dont understand how i was ever a blackberry user, they have nothing to look forward to( yes i know people as myself alsways said if they made a bold 9000 with a touch screen it would be good, but damn, you guys took it serious... u guys cant compare to android, windows 7 or apple. shame
