As to the operating system question- Barring any new handset releases that happen either before BB6 or at the same time, I would think the 9650 would be the best phone to handle the new operating system because it has the most application memory of any BB out right now (512mb.) So if there are any features that need more room to work with, the 9650 will be your best bet. Other than that I haven't read anything one way or the other about what phones that BB 6 will work on. I'd guess that prettymuch all the newer released handsets will be fine with it, but I don't know that for sure.
I read a great review from Crackberry.com yesterday. There were a couple mentions of the 9650 being prepped and ready to go for BlackBerry 6:
"On the inside we have juiced up memory to 512MB (in preparations for BlackBerry 6) and the addition of Wifi."

"On the inside the Bold 9650 is juiced up. 512MB (around 300MB free) means there is plenty of room to keep things running smooth. With the planned BlackBerry 6 right around the corner, this device will be ready to roll upon release."

Can't wait to get my hands on it.
