    Hi,

    I realize no one knows for sure but was wondering if there is a BlackBerry 9900 sucessor in the works at all- similiar to what the 9780 was to the 9700. I really like the 9900 but have been put off by the constant negative reviews of bad battery (better on the 9780 that I have now), worse camera (again, better on the 9780- this model that I have really does have a surprisingly sharp camera) and some apps I use not currently being compatible with OS 7 and general stability issues (i.e. bricking?). Also the lack of UMA currently (I'm on T-Mobile USA).

    I love the 9900 form factor/design (not big on full touchscreen) but am hesitant to upgrade and restart a contract for with the 9900 based on what I've read. Ideally, something similar to the 9990 just with upgraded internals. I can't seem to justify spending $250+ on a device with specs slightly below what I already have- as good as it might look on the outside.

    Any input would be appreciated before I decide whether or not to stick with my current phone and wait it out.

    Thanks!

    Yes, there is one and check under here: http://forums.crackberry.com/rumored-devices-f150/

    I hope RIM push it out with a really good OS and hardware. I don't want RIM going though issues with their new devices. The unfortunate thing is that Bold 9700/99xx form factor BB 10 devices probably be the last type of devices to be launched under the new BB 10 platform.

    No, there isn't a refresh of the 9900/9930 in the works.

    Those are rumoured BB10 phones... completely different

    Oops, I thought the OP is looking for info on Bold form factor BB10 devices.

    Right. I doubt there will be another OS 7.1 device that refreshes the 99XX

    The next device RIM will roll out will be QNX (BB10).
    Now, that isn't to say that there would be a device with the form factor of the 99XX that runs QNX. I'm almost positive there WILL be one, it just may not be the first. I'll probably get the full touch BB 10 superphone, but the QWERTY one is going to be interesting! Depending on screen size, I might hold out for it.
