    Love this thinness, but that device looks like it's from 2004. I understand they wanted to go back to the original Bold format, but RIM could've given the thing an updated look. In that picture with the 9700 and the Torch, the Bold Touch looks like the oldest phone.
    No it doesn't. And I'm willing to bet if you see these in person side by side and in your hand, you would not think so either. The Bold Touch is markedly thinner, has a real metal frame, and the screen of course will be sharp as ****.

    Oh and I know you were just exaggerating, but which 2004 phone does it look like? :0

    Yeah this isn't black bezel or chrome finish were talking about. Were talking about high quality stainless steal. For example, the iphone 4 stainless steal band around the phone. It wont chip unless you smash it or something.

    Well it all comes down to your preference. Are you the type of person who loves to have games on their phone, web browse, and have the full blackberry experience? If not the blackberry bold 9780 I'd say would be perfect for you if you don't do those things. Hence the new bold has 8 GB on board storage, pinch to zoom web browsing, and a 1.2 gigahertz processor.

    If you're always waiting for the next best thing...then you're always waiting and never acting.
    True BUT, there's a HUUUUUUGE difference here!

    I got my 9780 in January and I cannot wait to get rid of it to get this one. This is like Paradise!

    I never thought I'd be asking this but will the Bold Touch be coming out in White also ? Just curious folks.

    The device looks dated already. I think they're trying to please the hardcore BB 9000 fans who never got over losing that form factor.
    I'm gonna get one for sure.

    Looks wider and taller than Torch. But for some old Bold lovers this is the next best thing. Sweet!

    Since when does stainless steel chip?
    I know they said the bezel is "stainless steel". Blackberry is known for plastic "chrome" bezels. But until I have my hands on one, I will believe it when I see it.

    I disagree . It resembles the 9000 very much. That was the idea. But it looks far more modern. The pictures of it next to the 9780/9700 I think make those two look out dated. Yeah, like the 900, but completely revamped and modernised.

    Definitely looking forward to upgrading to this device from my 8330! Hopefully it releases on vzw this summer! Although it seems it's a little early for speculation on carriers and release dates? Or am I just not looking in the right threads? Lol

    Classic, is right bow to the king! I have even returned my Avatar to a picture of my 9000 in celebration of the kings long awaited revival.

    I'm surprised I haven't seen any pics of the 9900 next to the 9000. Does anyone know if any have been posted?

    "Duller" is the word that comes to my mind. But the lack of those 2 colors wont keep me from buying and loving this phone

    ...and someone needs to learn how to put a battery cover on all the way on that 9700 before they take side pics....

    WTF:

    I think the red and green can be a bit tacky at times. All white is kind of slick to me. Either way is fine though!

    They had to do that so the phones would stand up by themselves.

    Wish there was a side by side clear view on the screen size between 9700, BB 9000 & Dakota.

    Appreciate any pics or feedback from anyone or testers on this. Thanks!
