    what i mean is, will 9900 be the last of keyboard/touchscreen blackberry in the bold series? i mean with the upcoming bb10 phones, it will be full touchscreen.

    Big mistake on RIM's part if they don't have a front facing qwerty device in their lineup. That form factor is their bread and butter.

    I'm guessing the BB10 phones will have at least a full touch, and a front facing qwerty. Maybe slider as well.

    i don't think so, more of a hope it doesn't happen.

    but if they are having a slider, the bold should continue but think it would be missing a trackpad and buttons based on the previews

    please, no slider, their so lame!

    a 9900 refresh like they did with the 9700, and this time they should have other features such as the front facing camera

    hope not, 9900 is perfect for me. this is the phone i've wanted ever since having the Bold 9000 and moving to upgraded models. 9900 has an even better keyboard then the 9000 and does everything i want very well!

    I would take this form, beef up the processor, screen, add a front facing camera and make both a full touch and a qwerty. This phone just feels perfect in the hand. The only problem I see is that the screen resolution on the qwerty would cause fragmentation for the devs.

    Agree 100% - only native thing I would change is a slide to lock/unlock, louder speaker (9700 was better in my opinion), and return to the leather battery door that slides out, this door is a hunk-o-junk.

    Exactly what I think. RIM's known for their signature Bold form factor. Only thing it's missing is a front facing camera and maybe a better processor and slightly bigger screen. All that plus BB10 = Big success for RIM (hopefully).

    I agree change the battery door back to the rubber door where it is easy to slide down. Bigger battery, faster processor.
