I carry a bb and a nextel. I would be all over this. My only gripe is why not a newer model? Qchat?

LOL!

As Kenneth mentioned in the comments on the article, it won't have an external antenna, which I'm sure is welcoming news to whomever still uses iDEN. As I didn't have a real picture and only information from official RIM sources, I made a device mockup

...you gotta admit, it looks pretty good for a Photoshop novelist

I hope this is sooner then later like 09. I use nextel for work and would love to have both. I can't deal with the 7100 like my buddies.

Woohoo! This makes me want to switch to Sprint Nextel, so I can switch back to AT&T.

I was just on the BB website and they are not listing a new phone for the iDen/Nextel Network. I also spoke with a Sprint representative and he had no knowledge of this phone either.

Does anyone have any hard facts on this model?

There is no "hard" information on this device yet.
The best you're gonna get right now is the information jibi posted at the top of this thread.

Read the press releases from Sprint during CTIA. Dan Hesse commented on the upcoming iDEN BB.

Where is this press release at? I looked for it yesterday and was unable to find it. Can you post a link of the source?

I would like it as that photoshop setup but with maybe a bit of rubber around the edge, and a charge port seal to give it the Nextel toughness.
