There is more plastic in there....hence the price, i think. Having auto focus = should not be expensive. 9900 doesn't have it due to the thinness RIM tried to achieve according to forum discussions.
If they price this equal to ip4, consumer will sway towards ip4.

- ask me if you really want it
i think that RIM took some of our requests into play here.
years ago I wanted the 9000 form factor to stay, then the 9700 took it over. Lots of people wanted the lighted trackpad button, and a metal exterior finish, and a touch screen with a keyboard. it took years but its here. This is what the BOLD should have been originally.
This version should have focused more on the internal specs...
Multi-touch screen, dual/multi core processor, HD camera, graphics, resolution...
Build the hardware and work on the OS, Not the other way around. I feel that is what RIM does. they make a few break throughs on the OS's and build hardware to meet that break through.

It's probably because the Bold is the flagship 'getting things done' phone, with business in mind. A different target audience than the Torch 9860. The Bold also has by far the most refined design with the nicest materials used.
