One thing I would like to point is that... So far the numeric keypad on all BB's is always on the left side but if you see the proposed Nokia E61. Their number/phone keypad will be in the middle and that will be lot easier to use.
I am sure someone has dropped/slipped the BB out of their hands while trying to dail a number because you are trying to hold the BB by lower left corner.
I would like to have the phone keypad in the middle.

Looks like the pricing will be $299 with a two-year plan.

With the keypad on the left it makes it extremely easy to dial one handed while holding the blackberry in your right hand. Since most people are right handed I have a feeling that RIM's choice to put the number pad on the left was based on that. Putting it in the middle would make it difficult for both right and left handed users for single handed use.

just my thoughts...

agreed...i WAS going to say it would be harder (the whole reach thing) but not much reach...
