I do not follow this stuff too closely but I have an 8900.

OS6 on the 8900 is not likely... time will tell, but no soon for sure.

8900 doesn't have the horsepower to run OS 6 as it stands today. Maybe a slimmed down version - maybe, but I agree with JSanders, above, not likely at all.

Thanks guys, bummer. There is part of me that does not want a touch screen and a part that does. How do you guys feel about that?

I like it. I hated the 9530 and 9550 but like the 9800. Takes some getting used to however and it isn't for everyone.

I suggest you get one and try for a few days.
