Verizon and Vodafone. Slightly larger screen than the iPhone as well.

Sith, starting the comparisons already?

I can't wait to see some videos of this running. This I think will be a big seller, even just being on big red.

So does anyone plan on getting the thunder? Are you taking the touchscreen dive with no keyboard? I want to get it for the simple fact that I love gadgets, but I can't imagine a BB without an external keyboard.

Any thoughts...

I'm looking forward to this. But I'm not sure how much i'd have to pay seeing as how my "new every 2" isnt up til march of next year. Doh't.
Although I do want to try it out first, I'm not going to go blindly.

I think it looks cool and should be a good BB, but I think the fingerprints would drive me nuts...

Default BB 9500 (Thunder)

I will be upgrading my current 8830WE to this device when it comes out. If the 9500 is similar to the leading touch screen devices out there, it should make for one awesome device.

I hate to ask this since there is no real answer, but is there any news on release dates? I don't see any dates except a fuzzy September in all the information I've read so far.

As a VZW user, I am asuming this is the device I will need to focus on in the coming weeks.

Will the VZW Thunder allows you to put in a foreign SIM card when I travel overseas to make local calls? I'm not interested to pay through my nose for the bloody roaming rate. I guess the answer is no.

You will have to get it unlocked I am sure, but yes it will, just like the 8830.
