I will wait until at least summer to make decision... until you guys have your hands on your "precious", complain all your want to complain and praise all you want to praise, after I read all the reviews, watched all the hands on videos, touched both models, and then, I will see what I am gona pick
I have to wait to play around with both. but i had the bold 9700 now im using a full touch android and i got used to the touchscreen but i still prefer the physical one. but i also like the big screeeeen i hope a slider comes out.
I'm going with the N-Series Bold variant. Picturing my 9900 with:
- Bigger Screen
- TimeCamera feature
- Auto Focus
- Front Facing Camera
- iPhone type apps on a Bold form device
- Better Battery
- Blackberry 10's Hub, Flow, & peek
But at the same time keeping the trusty keyboard, and keyboard shortcuts is my dream device.
Having used the 9800 for over two years now, it is just the right way : full touch screen (with the same high screen resolution as the others touchscreen only devices... And not a lower type as currently with the Torch range...) for half of the time such as browsing, games, maps, etc AND full keyboard when needed for long emails or BBM, etc. (because we still need to work with our devices...)
Slidersssssssssss powa! (really)

Going to get my first phone without a keyboard in 10 years and go with the L. Hopefully I can get used to no PKB because the idea of the extra screen real estate is appealing. Worst case if I can't get used to it then I'll get an N down the road and give the L to one of my kids to replace their Curve.
Now I'm using Bold 9900 and I'm super-sattisfied with the hardware keyboard, but I just can't resist the nice big high-res display of BB London, so that will be my choice. Hope the software keyboard to be neet, I've previously tried Storm 2, but couldn't last for longer than a week before returning back to Bold.
FYI: Both L and N-series will be launched in the same day, you won't have to wait any longer for the QWERTY goodness in case you also want to grab the first thing that has the 10 in it
thats a very tough question!! id love the L due to the fact that BB10 as an OS was built around the touch screen and everything else wouldnt be the full/real effect. But i do love the QWERTY of the 99xx and how easy and fun it is to type with it hmmmm i guess ill make up my mind when they both come out and i have a change to play with them.
I currently have a 9780 and mostly hate touch phones so I'm going to take baby steps and get the N. Since it has a bigger screen than the 9900 which is bigger than the 9780 I think it will feel plenty big for the next two to three years.
I was hard and fast thinking about N Series, but that's still a ways away. Also, I have a lot of apps on PlayBook that would probably be more likely to come to L Series. Hate typing on a touch screen, but we'll see.
At first I thought I wanted The N Series more, but since The L series look more advanced rather than the N series, then I might decided to buy the L series instead. Also, the specialty of the L series is that "fully touched screen", no keyboard, and I haven't seen that kind of BlackBerry yet. Big difference is great rather than less difference.
