Aaak! I forgot -- WiFi N isn't sufficient... we'll need WiMAX to make UMA really sing. Imagine what that could do for H@H! With city-wide WiMAX and WiMAX capable H@H phones -- and the fact that WiMAX is a very cheap way to bring broadband to rural areas, this could play nicely for TMo.

So - yeah - BT 2.1, 802.11N *AND* WiMAX...

Well Correct me if im wrong but doesnt the 8820 have GPS and WiFi in the same unit?

Probably referring to the Curve units. At least I hope so...

I do think they can fit both in there though, along with a camera.

Chips get smaller as the market demand justifies redesign. Totally conceivable that GPS, 802.11n, WiMAX chipsets all get small enough - with low enough energy use - so that they can coexist in the Curve's form factor.

I sure hope so. That would be a fantastic 'Berry.

Not so bothered about the devices themselves, but I would love for a spangly new BIS 3.0 to come out with:
  1. IMAP IDLE
  2. 2-way reconciliation of messages, including the unread/read status
  3. Ability to file in folders
  4. HTML
  5. Sync my calendar OTA (although this seems unlikely given possible erosion of the BES marketplace, but would still love it!)

Having said that, when a new Pearl comes along I will doubtless lust after it

Yes to all of the above.

I have to say i had the curve and the 8800 and i love the feel and sleekness of the 8800 much better, the curve feels more like a toy. Maybe just me.

I agree as well. And add color contacts. So you can tell who is who just by color

HTML email. My parents are on week 1 of their first BlackBerry. And while they do say it is an awesome phone, they will be returning their units and getting a Windows Mobile 6 device JUST BECAUSE the email viewing is so crappy on the BlackBerry. They are in real estate, and constantly get email with pictures from prospectives. And yes, I have tried BBSmart. The thing that did it for them was an email that had a bunch of house listings. But when it was viewed in BBSmart, the ONLY pictures that showed up were pictures of the agent. Extremely useless for them.

I personally think BB will start to fall off in the business sector unless they do something about HTML email. I'm sure my parents switching to a Windows Mobile device just because of email viewing is not the only case.

I really wanted to keep them on BB because I can better help them if they do, and there is less that can go wrong. But, with what they do, I cannot blame them. I would dump BB in a heartbeat in their situation.

Considering the BB was an email device first and it's still it's main draw, HTML email for BIS and BES is a must.

Faster processor, definitely.

More memory.

Keep improving the camera. The Nokia N95 has a 5mp camera. Video recording would be nice.

3G all around. It would make for quicker downloads with a faster processor inside and make tethering on the GSM BBs tolerable.

I think to see the 8100, 8300 and 8800 form factors all with GPS, Wi-Fi and all the same features other then the camera would be great. Then the choice would be the form factor for consumers and business and government could go with the 8800s.

And keep the 8300 qwerty keyboard, it's the best RIM has had in a long time .

That's my .02
