battery life should be their main concern... I can't imagine a Berry running with 1,5Ghz dualcores and another graphic processor installed, with current power management and all that pushed online contents?
Lol.. you can only use your phone for only 5 hours running on 3G mode, before the phone drained the battery power to it's death :D

But BlackBerry already on the edge of existance, so you're obviously talking nonsense.
Progress moving in direction having your main computer in your pocket
however BlackBerry OS still the sucks OS, for IT people this phone is nothing more than a chat phone

There will be a few new versions before it gets rid of the bloatware. OS such as Apple is far better written and more efficient, as should be the new BB os. You think hardware is everything when in fact it is only disguishing bloatware. I am a BB user and perfectly happy with its performance. So what about dual core battery draining video players and partime mobile phone. I want best communications, not video.
LG_Tech, 26 Oct 2011A few steps behind as usual... "Superphones" next year will have Quad-core procesors... moreThose so called superphones will have quadcore cpu's wich cant be used by the software. There's even hardly any software making use of dualcore cpu's let alone quadcore.

[deleted post]True!! RIM is dying. And their phone aren't meant for hi-end users as we realized that their specs are always outdated. People getting smarter now by moving to Android B-)
xulescu, 26 Oct 2011'bout time for RIM to join the dual-core game...by the time they release dual core phone, everyone else is gonna be doing quad cores
Come on RIM.... Whats the point in dual core processor when your phones are meant for business.... I dont mind the current processor, just gimme more battery live...
I really hope it's not too late for BB. And if not, if price will be too big, or there will be no support for android apps or no videocalling on Skype, less than 1 GB of RAM, short battery live, bad design,... any kind of miss, it will be the end for BlackBerry.
p.s. Whoever were those people at the head of Blackberry, they should be gone for directing BB into present disaster.
BB Loyal, 26 Oct 2011I'm holding out and hoping I'm still on my trusty 9700. The new os seven is nothing but a ligh... moreit's my case too. i own a 9700 bold. 9700 is a 2-year old phone and most of it's users already want to get rid of it and switch to a new device. it's hard to switch 9900 and ignore all the other superadvanced devices on the market. there are better display resolutions, amoled's, androids, applications, internet without a blackberry plan, touchscreens, superprocessors, so even as a blackberry fan i cannot close my eyes and get the 9900.
