I'm no expert, but isn't IDEN the protocol that Nextel uses? If so, considering Sprint and Nextel have merged, wouldn't RIM and Sprint be putting their efforts into CDMA devices (Sprint's protocol)?

Don't hold your breath, look how long the 7520 and 7100i took... Past has shown that iDEN devices have been last on the food chain when it comes to new releases.
