    Hi I currently have the 9700. I honestly was ready to upgrade to Android - Samsung Galaxy S2 or other Android devices.

    Launch day, I went and looked at the 9900 and switched my mind and ordered it through retentions.

    Do you think the 9900 will be around for a while before we see a upgrade (like 9700 to 9780) ?

    Everyone is expecting the next flagship phone to run QNX. In that case, the 9900 will be "obsolete."

    Any brand new phone you buy will become the 2nd best in 6 months. Buy what's the best for your needs now, worry about the future later.

    Im so confused about this 4G and 3G+ .... I see that 9900 capable of 14.4MBS .. is this 4G .... the rogers tech support who I just called kept telling me the 9900 is 21.1 MPS and he say 5G (LTE) is coming out soon which is capable at 100MPS... i hung up on him because he's an ***** lol.... but I need clarification....

    what is 3g speed capped at?
    what is 4g speed capped at?
    is 5g already in the work?

    I keep hearing of this QNX.. i'll search the forums but is this dual core processing?

    This phone will be supported for a while. RIM will sell a lot of them to governments etc. and will have to support them. Selling tons of them around the world and they would be hurting themselves even more by not supporting it for at least a couple of years. IMHO

    Wait for what ?? New improved 99xx series ?? With RIM experience, you don't need to wait more than a year... But it will take away joy of having it... using it immediately after launch. Its a legendary device from RIM.

    New models / continuous improvements is heart of Electronics.

    I would suggest to Upgrade. It a lovely phone.

    The 9900 (GSM) is capable of 14.4mbps on the downlink. As a few months ago, the ITE (not sure if im correct on the acromym) the body that regulates this 4g stuff decide to comply to carrier branding so HSPA+ which is like 3.5G is "4g. now"

    So whether it is LTE of HSPA+, both are 4G. There is no 5g in the works per se. Carriers are working on bringing faster LTE speeds which i guess they'll be able to brand as 5G.
