I'm looking forward to seeing a 9930 with QNX. Great form factor, though. I like the stainless steel a lot.

Well that would be cool if it were QNX, but OS7 isn't QNX. BB's won't have QNX for a long time...but that 9900 looks it's going to be a very slick device!

Is their anything that says this new blackberry will allow users to view videos and web sites? Will it have some type of flash player? Not having this on my 9000 is what I don't like.

A dozen and one, please, and send that extra one my way. It will make you feel better if you do.

Honestly, no. And I'm not entirely sure they should. Besides, I wouldn't be at all surprised if BGR was attempting to wreck the sales of OS7 devices by putting doubt into the minds of potential OS7 purchasers that QNX phones are so close to release.

With that said I guess it will be just like the Bold 9000 and no streaming video. So is it going to be the 9000 reborn?

Depends on format (and size). There are many mobile sites that provide streaming video that plays on BlackBerrys. Flash may be video, but video does not equal Flash.

Yes. Because OS 4.6 and OS 7 are identical.

Anywhoozle, I'm waiting on the unannouced OS 7 Curves. I miss the keyboard.

Question: Re: Q1, Is RIM a calendar-year company? If not, when is their Q1?

Aw... I love you too. I think. Maybe not. I'm not sure.

*shrug*

RIM operates on with their first quarter encompassing March through May. Therefore, Q1 FY2012 is March through May of 2011. Expect the Q2 FY2012 call sometime in September as Q2 ends August.
