Looks like the old Pearl 81xx but with the trackpad instead of the trackball. 3G is a welcome addition though.

I like it. I loved my 8100 that I got in 2006. I loved Suretype and the size. If they could make a high res screen and trackpad that would be a hit, especially with people who didn't browse much (smaller screen).

My thoughts are that it would eventually get released to all carriers like the original pearl did, but I don't really have any source to prove that. It's just kinda what I think. Also, don't think it will get released until probably some time next year.

The red spray paint was a refreshing added bonus.

That does add a slight air of mystery to the image...

I would call Photoshop on the Red Spray Paint, but I think this is more old school. A la MS Paint.

Phone looks cool. I'm excited about the addition of the trackpad.

With Bell and Telus, the two CDMA carriers in Canada rolling out their nation wide HSPA network overlay in November (apparently Bell already has a roming deal with ATT), it will leave only only a few US cariers with CDMA only networks. I wonder how much development dollars will go for new CDMA/EVDO devices?

This is how the phone looks. It is RIM simulator image.

Stunning looking SureType phone - definately gets my vote over the Pearl Flip!

Would be interesting to see what the specs are (i.e. CPU, RAM, Camera etc)

If this had the CPU & RAM of the Curve 8900/8520 and Camera of the Storm then RIM would have a serious hot cake seller on there hands!

If verizon keeps up their order levels then you will still see plenty of cdma devices, simple as that, the likes of bell and telus will have had negligble impact on such devlopment.
