Dakota should come after the Pearl. Both devises should be out later this year for GSM carriers. T-Mobile will snatch that the Pearl 2, most likely unless something happens will pick up the Dakota as well.(AT&T)Nokia 5110(2001)-->(Cingular)Nokia 6102i (2007)-->(T-Mobile) Blackberry Pearl 8120 (2008)-->(T-Mobile) Blackberry Bold 9700(2010)-->(T-Mobile) T-Mobile G2 (2010)--> (Sprint) HTC Evo 4G White (2011)-->(T-Mobile) T-Mobile G2 (2011)--> (AT&T) HTC Inspire 4G (2011)(AT&T)HTC Vivid (2012)-->(Verizon) Samsung Galaxy S III White

although... i sure hope we see something newer/better within the next year... RIM needs a completely new modern OS... whether you admit it or not... they are going to be so far behind if they don't do something drastic soon...Bold 9700

Agreed - somewhat
I agree that the 9700 is the best phone out there - that much better than the 8900 I had before it - boy is it fast......
I disagree however about a better phone being two years out - I think the Dakota (combo touchscreen/keyboard device - not storm slider) will be out before the end of the year. It shoudl also have Open GL and a webkit browser - both nice features. You may want to wait for that BUT keep this in mind.... there will always be a next, greater one on the horizon.

I would wait until something comes out with the webkit browser as we don't even know what devices it will be available for. It would suck to buy something and find out 31 days later that it won't be getting an important upgrade.
