Default What do you guys predict the next Flag ship blackberry phone will be?

I know the 9700 just came out and I'm really happy with mines, but I can't wait to see what the next flagship BB phone would be. Have you guys heard any rumors and specs?

We probably won't see another flag ship device towards the close of this year.

RIM seems to have the Bold2 take the spotlight, once they kill the Bold name or bring an even more revolutionary BlackBerry into the spot light it will change.

I'm not sure how much more they can change up the hardware at this point.

I would like to see a 9000 replacement with the same size screen, same keyboard, trackpad, faster processor, more memory and slimmer back. That would me the ultimate for me, Dakoda or Magnum? I don't want touchscreen though, already have one of those...

I want to see one that is nuclear powered so battery life is NEVER an issue any longer.

How about an unlicensed nuclear accelerator to keep it charged

So a time travelling, always charged BlackBerry code named "Facemelt"?

The only thing it needs is one of those back fins they put on cars. You know, for aerodynamics.

Only if it folds against the device, so I can fit it in my pocket.

On the other hand, given it's power source, maybe that's not such a great idea...

You don't want a nuclear powered BlackBerry bursting through your pocket "area"

Definately not.

Ideally I'd like the next flagship BB to have the following, on top of what's already offered (capabilities wise) on all Blackberrys.

- Screen size of a Storm
- Touchscreen
- Qwerty Keyboard
- Up-to-Date Network Speed (4G, 5G, 6G, 1000000G, etc)
- 5MP Camera with Video capabilities
- Browser that is on par with Safari
- WiFi

I think something like that would have everything that I want.

If my Bold had the screen size of a Storm with a Safari-like Browser, it would be the ideal phone for me (FOR NOW).

Aside from everything mentioned... an FM radio and DTV receiver would also be cool too... the 9700's screen is so beautiful, it's great to watch (high-quality) video on!

How about a slider, where you can use a touchscreen to navigate the web, and a slide-out keyboard when you want to use the email platform?
