Thank goodness it's not silver! These are the best pictures I've seen so far. Make sure you click on them to enlarge once on the pinstack site.

Interesting how the actual pictures are quite different than ones that have been circulating around the past few weeks. This device looks really, really nice. Too bad it's going to be GSM on Roger's first as I would pick this up in a heartbeat if it was CDMA.

Yeah, I'm on Nextel now, but the cutting edge may get the best of me when these come out and I may have to make the switch. I'd prefer one on Verizon, so I guess I'll have to wait and see what the announcement brings tomorrow.

I'll be making the jump from a 7280 when Cingular releases this BB hopefully late this year. Looks nice and thin. And it's black.

The reason I went with BB in the first place was the BES next to the MES in the HO (home office) Not because of it's looks. If these pictures are the real deal, this one looks as good any other smartphone, even the RazrBerry.

All I have to say is bring it on.

If the phone issues are fixed and volume, clarity, speakerphone, and noise cancellation problems are gone I will be getting one. Let's hope RIM has heard us on these issues.

From these picrs it looks like this is a real phone and once thing I don't want to see in this phone is that it should not go black after 5 mins thne you will ave to click some key in order to see the screen. Thats what happens in 7100x series right now and I do not like it at.. Hope this BB does not have that battery saving mode. it was just so annoying.

I am sure there will be within 30 days because RIM will have to spread this new look across all cariers in order to beat Tero

i saw that 4.1 os was mention, i am wondering if we will be able to upgade our OS from 4.0 to 4.1. And the mention of themes is intersting. I think some RIM developers are viewing the site here. Not bad idea at all guys

Default Sweeet!!

Oh man this device looks sweet. If the desctiption of it is true and the pics are real, I will definately be getting one.

I was looking to upgrade from my 7230 to a 7290 but it looks like this will hopefully be my second BB. Right On

Pretty sharp looking.

Does anyone know what the button on the left side will be for? (middle pic)

The post is not in the pinstack forum any more (not sure why) but someone posted that this particular model was "bang-on", so who knows. Personally, I'm rooting for this one.
