    i don't think this is a reason because Verizon's Bold is full of bugs and battery life is terrible, my daughter hate it since day one she owns
    Lots. The latest for me since upgrading to VZ's newest 6 is all my BBM contacts and history get wiped when I reboot and all websites I hit don't recognize I'm on a mobile device. Good stuff.

    I think they will release the new Bold in June or perhaps even May. Reason: Rogers, Best Buy and Future Shop (in Canada) have all run down stock and only seem to have 3 blackberry's avail (Torch, 9780, Curve) and the prices are slashed to $50 or less. Some are only avail in store and not online. I doubt they'd keep such a limited inventory for more than 30 days, and I think it's a signal that new phones are coming...............
    Just my two cents.
    I completely agree with that statement...I was in Best Buy a few days ago and ran into a cell phone sales guy there. He said that that BB Touch and the full touch screen BB's both coming out at the end of May. I usually don't trust comments like that with out hard data but he looked like he was saying something without really saying it on purpose.


    Got me super excited and I am tossing my HTC EVO 4G as soon as I can get my hands on the Bold Touch!

    I'm selling my evo too.I'm really looking forward to having my berry back. I'm tired of not knowing if someone has called or texted me. The notifications on the evo aren't really very good imho.

    I work at BestBuy part time and i even posted info on that $200.00 gift card you get when you go with a bb. But apparently it is only for BestBuy s in Calgary. I check our BestBuy inventory database and I can see that all Rogers, Telus and Bell has downgraded to allowed stock levels for BB 9780. But I don't think this 9900 will be out this months. I think, it will be end of June or even end of July.

    The Evo's terribly poor battery life and not having a real keyboard have finally annoyed me to the point I want to throw this phone against the wall but then again that would affect the resell value hehe!

    Agreed also with the notifications...I cant get a FB notification unless I open the app and check....very bad integration with the phone.

    The great thing about the Evo is that it has awesome navigation that has helped me on many occasions and now that it offers Netflix.

    The navigation on the Evo is very good and I too agree having netflix on my evo is frakin sweet but its ok, I have other devices that will play netflix on the road and maybe soon with the addition of these new berrys we can get a good netflix app.

    can you even see anything decently like an entire movie/show on a smalls screen though? wouldn't it cause eye-fatigue or something.

    i really want to try out this 9930, but with it being so close to the Evo3d it's hard for me to swing towards it.

    Liked the 9650 when I had it but it was laggy ish for me.

    Battery life on my Evo 4g is usually 20-30 hours. Not sure what it is for non-rooted phones though. Mines been rooted since a week after I got it..which was a week after release. =)

    Might do the same thing I did with the Bold, get the 9930 for the 30 days...if I'm not completely happy with it, i'll give it back and get the Evo3d.

    Telus has just dropped the price on the Bold 9780 to 0$ for a 3 year contract. Always a good sign. Also, the offer ends May 31st.

    I work for Rogers in Toronto and during a meeting last week to show off HSPA+ vs our upcoming LTE network the director mentioned the "upcoming 9900", but no specifics yet on exp. release date or even ramp up dates, which we're usually updated on ~30-40 days in advance. Will post here if I find out anything the Internet doesn't find first.

    Not to nitpick on the slim info you have, but was the 9900 mention in conjunction with LTE, or they were just both presented during your meeting?

    Mentioned with HSPA+.. which we recently decided to call "4G". The only word I've heard about BlackBerry LTE is that it'll probably come out only on QNX devices with the PlayBook first in line, which was about a month ago from a friend who works on the radios at RIM.

    Re: Launch Date ... someone may have aleady noticed this. I think it will be middle summer and my reason being, Best Buy was just blowing out the 9780 on their free phone Fridays ! So that's a Bold 9780 that hasn't been out for a whole year yet being offered for $ 0 on a 3 year contract. Ialso noticed a couple of kiosks at Metrotown mall in Burnaby offering the Bold 9780 for free on a 3 yr contract. I would think they are trying to clear out the stock to make way for the 9900/9933, coming very soon.

    I totally agree with those that believe RIM not only have their fingers but their head up their rear as well. Just go to Endgadget and watch the daily release of new and improved Androids. It is hard to imagine that RIM can't just move forward and release the new models. I for one... just do a ton of email and can't do without the Bold 9000 keyboard. I don't want nor need apps.
    Just give me the new Bold and I'll go way happy but for gosh sakes do it now.
    Thanks for listening and hope to have it SOONER rather LATER.

    With J Balsilie being appointed to UN Panel on Global Sustainability, I would find it strange if they start releasing new phones every 6 months or so. Android phones are built from many different manufacturers not a unique one like Rim. I d rather follow a company who makes robust phones that get the job done and last longer.
    But I have to admit that I cant wait to get my hands on this phone though...
