One of the reason I want to get the Bold is to watch TV shows that I missed.
For instance: ABC.com Full Episode Player or FOX Broadcasting Company

Can tell me if you can watch these shows on the Bold?

Thanks for all the information. Device looks great, I came really close to buying an iphone and crossing over... Glad I didn't. I just couldn't give up the ability to type without looking, you just cant do that with an onscreen keyboard.

How's the general build quality? Does it creak? I had my Curve for less than 2 months and the paint job wasn't that hot. Luckily I can change the back cover where it's peeling. And after a while, the battery door started to creak...

Does the new Bold browser store previously entered form information ie. login information like username/password, so you don't have to retype it each time? Does it prompt you to save this information? I haven't seen this option on a Curve.

That is a german Tmo device. QWERTZ and all, not QWERTY. Check the forums here for a post in the Horizon Wireless sponsor forum.

There are only two differences between these devices: Y and Z are exchange and on the currency key you have Euro symbol () instead of a Dollar symbol ($). But still can assing the Dollar symbol to the Euro key.

No, it doesn't as far as I can see.

Can you elaborate on why the keyboard is much better than the 8800? I have the 8800, and from the pictures, it looks like the keyboards are very similar. My biggest gripe by far, is the keyboard on the 8800, so this was something I hoped they improved upon.

The keyboards looks similar on both devices, that is true. But RIM seems to be using "buttons" under the keypad that are almost as good as the ones from the Curve. The keyboard is absolutely fine for me. If you want to get the Bold, then I would suggest you to try out the keyboard yourself to get a feeling for it before you buy the device.

I will be getting the Bold no matter what! I am sure the keyboard is fine.... If I can work past the deficiencies of the 8800 keyboard, I am sure I will be just fine on the Bold. Thanks for the info!

Come on, where are your questions?
What's the resolution and frame rate of the video recording from the camera? QVGA @ 15fps or VGA 640x480@30fps?

Web pages look exactly like they would do on your Internet Explorer or FireFox or any other Desktop PC Internet browser. The only exception is Flash. The BlackBerry Browser 4.6 does not support Flash animations.

That's what RIM is writing about the browser enhancements.

What kind of battery is in the Bold is it new? Also someone mentioned whether it would fit into an 8800 holster ok and line up with the sleep magnets.
