I love 9930 form factor its what CDMA carriers should of had in the first place not the cheap 9600 series want to be Bold.

Well Slingbox you have to think the Blackberry brand of phones are tended to be more towards corporate people. So most of the companies that would supply there employees with phones when they are blackberries they don't really need a front facing and a hdmi out. Because the majority of use for those corporate consumers is email and phone calls. So why put all the unnecessary things on a Blackberry when the majority of consumers don't need. But if a blackberry user needs/feels that he/she needs those things then they can go and get a evo or something similar. Blackberry does what it does the best top of the line phone for Email no comps. out there. I think that is why blackberry as not put all that really unnecessary additions on there phones.

HDMI/Video out for business presentation is popular as well.
If Rim had such features available they wouldn't be in the hot mess of losing customer base stocks dropping etc
On the email front they really need to work on Push dependability , BES/BIS goes down way to often it needs a major fixing .
Bottom line RIM stuck in 2008
They need to think about tomorrow not live in yesterday.
After my original post in this thread I was seriously looking to pick one up adding second line....hey I love device form factor its what Ive dreamed of in cdma BB
Finding out Camera picture quality has regressed put final nail in coffin no 9930 for me

I agree about the front facing camera. But if video chat is going to be needed every day or something they will have a dedicated video chat system since most video chats include more then one person talking to another group of people for business situations. So they would need something bigger then a smartphone regardless.

Blackberry playbook has Video chat capability their new flagship device should be no different.
Samsung , moto , HTC , LG & Apple smartphone have it , if BB wants to be competitive they should have it as well.
That wont happen for a very long time though , heck they couldn't design 9930 to cam auto focus and still remain thin.
grrrrrrrr RIM irks me

I just came back from bestbuy, and the rep let me unbox the 9850, being that they did not have the 9930. I have to tell you, the phone looks really good!!!! The touchscreen works well and the liquid graphics are really sharp. The phone is nice and thin...The phone come in a really small box, lol. Sprint does include a 4 gig SD card. I think this phone is going to pull many of the 9930 customers to it....We shall see
