I am intrigued by the new Blackberry divices and went into a Rogers store yesterday. The sales person confirmed your point that the Browser is much improved in OS7. I was also told that the the theoretical connection speed in 3G is double with the new BlackBerries. Could be that a processor at twice the speed and connection twice as fast = better browser performance. May have all to do with the hardware and little to do with OS 7.
With my carrier quietly changing the rules for upgrade eligibility (26 months) I will confirm the same advice as mentioned in a number of posts here and stick with my 9800 until the QNX devices come out and then shop around between Rogers, Bell and Telus for the best deal.
