Is 4.0 available for it? Can I upload ringtones through the USB port? Can I use it as a modem? How is battery life? Can I copy music from the PC to the iCharm? Can I use the non functioning IR port on older BBs to beam stuff to it? Does it have Bluetooth with full functionality?

<OK, I'll stop now>
:D

You forgot to ask if it would connect to 2 PC's at once and how to downgrade the OS ;)

I also heard it has an IR and RF port for control of your TV, Stereo etc.. and was demo'd with the new Remote controled Roomba, the latest robotic vacuum. Hmm maybe my wife will want one now :(








































Still kidding, but now LOL

I'm curious, if this is a joke or not. Where did you hear of this iCharm?

The iCharm will be basically a 7100 but with multimedia capabilities like video, mp3's etc. Though oddly enough, there are no plans for it to have a builtin camera.

I don't see that happening anytime soon. BlackBerry has always been for the "business" user, and not the consumer. Even the new models, as they appeal to more consumers, are still, on BlackBerry.com listed as "Business Phones". You can argue a camera has business applications, but by-and-large, its a consumer feature, and has not been implemented. As is multimedia, like mp3's or video, that is not the drive I have seen from BlackBerry, or see it going with new development on models like the 7270.

Sorry to spoil all your fantasies of what the iCharm is going to be but,

The iCharm is the code name of the up and coming 7100 form factor BlackBerry for the iDen network..

Speaking of...


So does that mean it will now be Sprint Cup Racing?

(IMO, that sounds much better than Nextel...)
