The leaked pics really look a lot like the q9 global. I saw one of those yesterday and the resemblance is striking. I hope the final BB 9000 design ends up being different.

According to BG, this is likely a continuation of the 8xxx series, to be released first on Vodaphone. The pic there seems to have a trackball whereas the one on Ebay did not. Seems to have a placeholder or something akin to the IBM/Lenovo touchpoint.

The full front view is a lot better looking than the angle on the Ebay one. Although I don't like that they appear to have carried over the 8800 series keyboard. It's cosmetically better, but I like the Curve's keyboard a little more.

the battery is going to be a very big issue with that. GPS, WIFI, and 3g on a 1500mAh battery?

very interesting... looks like a sleeker hybrid between the curve and the 8800. the 8800 is very clunky... Quickly ditched it for my curve.... after wifi, gps and 3g what else is left to look forward to? thought dialing?

Looks about 8800 size with rounded corners. Also has a camera, so really a full offering. Makes for interesting decisions. If it could get to Tmobile by the time they roll a 3G network, I'd be happy for a long time.

Hey well I've got a question about it then. If this 8xxx has HSDPA, which is 3.5G, will it work on ALL standard 3g networks? Because here in Spain, as far as I know, they're 3g, and I haven't heard of anyone say anything about 3.5g, unless it's just a simple update that they made that wasn't worth the publicity.

And what about memory? I didn't see any information about how much memory it's going to have! Is this the 1GB memory BB? That would be cool 1GB of onboard memory!

Regardless, I think I might get it! I think I'm going to first see how much it's going to cost ;). hehe.

I agree I wouldn't want a touchscreen blackberry. Most of us have had an touch screen device and hated it. SO why are we trying to go there. My kids have iphones and i would never (and i'm one of the crazy mac fanboy's you read about; that hangs on Job's every world).

But i really think the iphone sucks as a professional device, now as far as carrying it around to talk and show off sure.

ive never really like apple as a company, granted yes, they are inventive in the way they do things, but they are by no means the only ones to do it, or even do it well. The iPhone is just a PDA phone, and compared to many many others its crippled. Vzw gets thrown under the bus for crippling their devices, be it bluetooth, or gps, or whatever, and yet apple is just apple. the whole situation is pretty amusing. I am actually very suprised VZW passed on the iPhone, locking it to verizon would have prevented any sales to other carriers and would have netted them an amazing amount of converts from other carriers. seems like a bad business move IMO. one thing apple does very very well is generate excitement about a product that isnt revolutionary, and most of that excitement they get for free.

Anyone know usually after an announcement like the one with BG when the turn around to US National carriers would be? (i.e. how long after the rogers or vodafone release would it come to either Tmo or ATT?)

I am itching for this papa bear device, and willing to finally submit to ATT and ditch sprint since I agree with some of you out there, it just takes too long to get a new device with Sprint!

there is no usual turnaround time. its entirely possible ATT/Tmo will release a device at the same time or before. It really just all depends on money.
