Lightbulb Screen size for Blackberry in the future

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,
We currently using 40 6720. Since a few month we buy new 7290.
All works fine, but I have a question about screen size.
I see that new bb models with usb and 32 Mb have a smaller screen that old 6720 or 7730.
So are the size of the 7290 the new regular size for bb or someone know that a version 32 mb and Bluetooth of the 7730 is ready ?

You're probably talking about the hypothetical model 7790 (the "90" suffix means quadband, and RIM won't introduce a GSM phone less than quadband from now on)

It probably won't ever be released, but you never know. RIM does plan to branch out to multiple markets, as they have for the 7100 series versus the 7290, so anything's possible. Expect a variety of screensizes, and the trend by all manufacturers is going to increased resolutions.
