Yes, tentatively I plan on getting it. I love the storm line or whatever this will version will be called.
There's only one other phone that might snag me and that's the Dakota. My theory is that this is the next generation bold. If it is the same size of the 9000 and feels like it, and has a tough screen this is the perfect blackberry. Of course this has to be verizon for me.
Probably not - I'm with Verizon - and I don't really want to wait for September-ish. I was hoping to have a Storm refresh in the March-April time frame to go along with a Playbook - but since it looks like RIM is going to remain WAAAAAAAY behind the other devices for years to come - and since this OS 6 will be practically ignored by most app developers - what's the point? I'm going to have to seriously consider jumping to either the Fruit or the Robot. No way in heck I'm going to the other 2 "destined to fail" platforms (Palm/HP & WP7). When you toss in the news that RIM is hinting at providing RIM enterprise software/apps to other platforms it sounds almost like they see the writing on the wall too...
January has been a real downer month.....
No LTE and no horizontal slider=no Monaco for me. Each on its own is a dealbreaker, let alone both.
Conversely, add both those back in and it's an automatic purchase for me. You'll remember BGR said there may be multiple versions...i want so much for that to mean more than just a gsm version and a cdma/LTE version...I scarcely dare to hope that there would be two form factors-with and without qwerty.
