    I was wondering the same thing. Looks to be the same as the 9000 except trackpad and physical buttons are different.

    Hints are pointing to a metal chassis, probably to give the thinner device structural integrity.

    If I'm not mistaking, the leaked roadmap said the frame was metal

    yeah. "machined" metal, I believe was the term they used.

    Yeppers, no plastic. True metal. The original 9000 felt good, sturdy, & og high quality. The metal bezel of this device enhances that feeling even more.

    I am wondering where the antennae will be placed on this device? RIM would not go there, or would they?
