while I agree with the first part of your post... this last part just makes no sense at all

i am anxious to see how blackberry handles its touch screen typing operations. will it vibrate with each "contact" like the verizon voyager? i'm sure blackberry did much market research and has picked the best typing arrangement on the device. they had to design this device not just for the consumer, but for the business person who wants the full functionality and easy of use of a blackberry, along with the cutting edge technology.

i know that everyone is against a touch screen, but i'm almost positive that blackberry will make it great. have faith! ha ha

i get enough crap on my screen I cant imagine having finger prints all the time. thats my only draw back to the touch screen. I cant keep what i have clean much less something I have touch with my hands when I am eating or working.

iPhone can easily be unlocked at this point. If that is all that is holding you back, go for it

you really need a keyboard. I reviewed the htc touch, i have an itouch, I hate the 'keyboard' !!!
a blackberry with no physical keyboard???? I'm already on verizon so I could try it out, but I'm not sure I want to.
Apple didn't get it right with the iPhone keyboard, so I'm not sure blackberry will.
they couldn't make it a slider? sigh.

Default Nice Clean Look But Why Not a Hybrid?

The Clean look is cool but I also would like to have a physical keyboard.

Why has RIM not looked at a design that has a fold out keyboard? There are many devices out there that do that but none work well as real Blackberrys. Why not have a unit that has both a touch screen and a real fold out keyboard?

There's always the possibility that they will branch out into having a fold out or slide out keyboard next!

Thats actually pretty good looking.
And to rachamphetamine - the fold/slide keyboard is a good idea, that would put it into rivalry with the HTC TyTN and the Sidekick

It looks good but the virtual keyboard design kinda looks ugly. Hopefully when it's release they'll have different "skins" for it.

How do you know that they haven't? All we know is that they haven't released a fold out. I'm sure you could ask the same of sliders, etc etc.

As for the touch screens, I'm not a fan of them but I'd give the iPhone 3G and the Thunder (just not on VZW) a shot.
