I'd be incredibly surprised to see that come out in the UK before North America, as the 9900 is the first follow up to the amazingly successful Bold (which, to toot my own horn I broke news of way back then.... nobody believed me initally!)

QNX based Blackberries are most likely a year away. I'm guessing at that point it'll OS 8.x
I'm just hoping that this model will be better than the Bold 9650. I wanted to get that device until I kept on reading about all the battery and signal strength issues. I kept my 8330 going all this time and now it's really nearing end of life. Camera's broken, etc. I'm sure this until will be a great upgrade if things actually 'work' with the unit.
