Lightbulb Which One to Choose? The Blackberry 9000 Series

Please Login to Remove!

From this date to one year from now it appears blackberry will have at least 4devices in the 9000 series. The 9000 (bold)-the powerhouse with pretty much every feature, the 9100 (kickstart)-a flipphone blackberry, the 9300 (javelin)-a "safe mode" blackberry, and the 9500 (thunder)-an exclusive full-touchscreen design. All with different service providers and varying release dates, I am curious which device is worth waiting and spending the money for? My vote is for the Bold because I am a fool for all the little bells and whistles plus it seems the most text friendly. The kickstart doesn't have the full qwerty keyboard-a must for me, the Javelin I don't really understand but appears just to be a lesser version of the bold and having practiced typing on the iphone, I am canceling out the thunder because the touch-screen keyboard isn't compatible for my big hands. I have voiced my opinion but what are forums' users opinion on which new phone will rein supreme?

Really hard to answer that as non have been released and all we have is rumor and conjecture - plus quite a lot of hype.

As for reign supreme - they all will be successful, IMHO, as they will all have those that will purchase, use, abuse and buy another. They will all have a following, just as the 8100, 8800 and 8300 series have now.

I believe the Bold will be the most wanted BB of those listed.

No telling. The whole point of offering the different models is to appeal to a broader base of users. It's not a race.

Javelin looks best to me due to the spaced keyboard.

The Bold. Note that the kickstart will be part of the 8000 series not the 9000 series. They said it will be the 8210.
