Will It Be A New Form Factor Or A Full Qwerty Pearl 2?

Touch Screen?

Any Guesses?
I am willing to bet money that it will not be a touchscreen BB. Moving to pure touch screen would be a stupid business decision since their keyboards are their bread and butter. They have to weigh the cost between research, development, production, and advertising cost vs how well their analysts expect people will adopt to it. And given that those analysts will find in their research that the BIGGEST complaint with the iPhone was the lack of keyboard, I don't expect them to bite. iPhone did so well because A) its apple, and B) the interface. The lack of keyboard and normal interface is recipe for a failing device. If they DID want to get rid of the keyboard and capture consumer segment, they damn well better have an interface that blows away the iPhone. New form factor, totally new OS, and no keyboard? Why even call it a BlackBerry?
