    I disagree. I understand that Rim doesn't want things leaking too far in advance because it would tip off competitors, but a 3-4 month head start isn't significant in the grand scheme of things. I believe there is a point where the liability of leaked info is offset by the appeal of free advertising. If Rim was really against info being leaked at any point before the devices were announced, they would continue to pull leaked pictures and videos until devices become official. When a device first leaks any information posted is removed from the internet within 48hrs. As the release date approaches they begin to let pics and vids stay up. Kevin even mentioned that he had the Pearl pics before he released them but had to wait. There comes a time when Rim is ok with it. Without spending a dime on Tour2 advertising there are tens of thousands of people waiting to buy it on day 1. A leak has a lot of benefits for Rim.
    then how come apple doesn't leak their products, its the total opposite with apple, they are the best hype machines out there, with no leaking at all, maybe a few days before the release events and im talking about 2 days before
    when the javelin first got leaked out, my friend mentioned a company wide email was sent out warning employees not to do this, he even knew a whole group that got let go because of the leak

    because about a total of 15 people within apple know about the product before it's announced. They are under a mountain of non disclosure contracts and all of their actions are monitored, cellphones taken, computers read. Constant monitoring.

    Well, apple products do leak just not to the extent of BBs. The world and his wife know there is a tablet coming right?
    I was reading on either gizmodo or engadget (can't remember which) that apple purposely leaks small details of products so they can gauge customer oppinion before a product gets official and they can do that for free by just shooting on of the big tech blogs an email under the guise of an 'anomomous informant'. That said no sane company would realistically want a whole product to leak before release/announcement. I can see why RIM must hate Sal haha.

    Very interesting, but I don't see the point of having a touch and keypad?

    Physical keyboards are totally different to soft keyboards. Unless its the storm you dont get any tactile feedback off of a soft keyboard.

    Precisely. only way I would ever buy it.

    What's Wrong wit ha Bold 9000 with a trackpad? I think it's a better option than a touchscreen. also the bold 9000 has 1024 meg of flash ram so the partition can just be shifted. and Voila you have a new handset. I never use the onboard memory for anything anyway as io have my 16 GB SD card

    I used to think the same, until I remembered the Treo. It was wildly successful, in its day. I've grown to like the idea...

    Its a beauty. If only we knew its size compared to the 9700, 96xx, and 9000 size phones.

    If it has a 9000 size keyboard i want it on CDMA ASAP
    I'm pretty sure it won't go cdma(Hopefully) so sick and tired of awful cdma.
