So given this, Ill spend my $300 on a Q or some other device which offers these options and many more. Goodbye RIM! Goodbye T-mobile!
But the only thing 4.2 will give 7290 users might be blackberry maps... and even at that, it MIGHT be offered an external application...
mp3 playback will never happen on the 7290, it's too damn slow.. and the rest of the 4.2 'features' are all hardware dependent anyway.
I'll be extremely dissapointed if i can't do GPS or Wireless modem over bluetooth on my 7290. If they cut it off now, bluetooth on a 7290 was a complete waste of hardware. May as well just made more 7280's instead.
