I'm the first to admit that I haven't really been paying much attention to this but wasn't it supposed to have a touch screen? I know (I think) that wasn't the 9100. With the iPhone2 being discounted so heavily by ATT I wonder if they are a day late with this.

The 9000 was rumored to be the BB with a touchscreen. But it ended up being the glorious device in front of us, having said that there IS a touchscreen BB in the works. There just aren't any "hard" details yet.

umm no verizon will be one of the last to get it as its CDMA... no carriers have been announced yet but word on the street is AT&T will have it first, and maybe rogers in canada, and possibly vodafone in the UK.... but thats all rumours and speculation right now...

Hope I'm right on the $ with this one! Unbelievable build quality is what it really should have! Which the 8800 series and the Curve obviously did not! Plus a slew of other goodies like-

Sick screen revolution, a processor that is twice as fast (wow) 3G, that new OS that I can't wait to use and a slew of other goodies!

I really hope that RIM learned from some of there mistakes with the Curve! Like the dust under the screen problem (ugh) and the over all loose feeling that the Curve had the first couple of months it was out! Hopfully they went back to the build quality of old that ended with the 8700.
