WOW. First time since I owned a BB that I am impressed so far with the recent news of this phone and the new OS. I will definitely try it out when it comes out. :)

Looks like the BB OS is a copy of android/iphone. I guess true innovation is an app that noone can get their hands on.

LOL. It really is a copy of Android and iPhone. But it incorporates both, so wouldn't that be better. I'm liking this device. It's everything into 1.
Accelerometer, Touch Screen, Qwerty Keyboard, and a combination of Blackberry, Android, and iPhone characteristics.
I need to try this phone out.

lol. Let's hope they at least put forth some effort for this app world. The last so called "store" was atrocious.

There is absolutely no difference. The only noticeable change, was that there was a top 25 added for newest themes and something else? Other than that, it's EXACTLY the same. It's slower for me, so that's good..

What else is new? Until WP7 comes out it's a 2 horse race.

Just think about Bob and Berarclaw copying me. Flattering, yes. Better? No. Just pathetic.

Wow this phone is pretty much a fail. Near zero apps for it since new OS broke them all.

Agreed. If RIM doesn't want to go under in the next 5-10 years, they need to go back to square one, create a brand new OS, get some 3rd party backend and make something that will actually compete with Android and iOS. The only thing good about a BB any more is the physical keyboard and BBM.

It's very expensive to make a new OS. Especially when a new can take 5-10 years to develop. Of course, who is to say they haven't been working on a new one.

IMHO, RIM is already on the way out.

Magus, you work for ATT right? Do you know when the BB OS6 is coming to the other BB phones?
