    Hey all,

    The other day after word of the 9700 dropped I posted a little update to Adam's blog entry on the homepage saying the 9020 was most likely the 9700. That's confirmed now, so I changed the device model on this forum.

    Older preproduction versions of the hardware/os featured a 9020 device model, but newer OS versions (which I have seen) have it labeled as 9700. Not the first time RIM has changed device model number as phones get closer to final form.

    Excited to get this device!!!!

    Greatness.

    Only the fight Pad vs. Ball left.

    I am sooooooo tired of trackballs getting gunked up with dirt, dust, fabric fuzz....I for one can't wait for a track pad.

    This is the 21st century - moving parts like a trackball are too susceptible to malfunction....PLEASE bring on the trackpad!

    I saw somebody posted on Twitter that the Onyx could be named the "Merlin". Anybody know if there is any truth to that rumor? Oh geez I hope RIM would not be that dumb to name it that. I hope that was just a joke.

    As a lover of arthurian myth I'd LOVE to have a phone called Merlin! History geeks of the crackberry nation...UNITE!

    Thanks for the heads up re: forum name change

    All the vids posted show it with the same old stupid ball. I love my Bold and Jav but I think the ball is the weakest link.... I'm always washing my hands before I touch it cause my friends get gunk in theirs and then they jam. I for one am ready for a touch pad or whatever they call it!
