    I just bought a refurb for free with contract last night.
    If the rumor of Bold with touchscreen coming out is true, I want to return my bold...

    There was a prototype one code-named Pluto but apparently it was scrapped?

    Touch screens no longer interest me. I've had a couple of touchscreen phones and to be honest I got sick of continually having to clean the screen and/or wash my hands before using it. I also got sick of accidentally selecting things with my ear. When I first got the Bold I kept going to touch the screen to select things and thought that I was going to miss out on something by having only the trackball, but now I wouldn't have it any other way. I don't even miss surfing with a touchscreen.

    The bigger screen would be nice, but not if it means a touch keyboard or a slider.

    The Samsung Epix has the right idea:
    Touchscreen with stylus and full keyed keyboard.
    Personally I like some aspects of a touchscreen. It would be nice to have the best of both worlds but only if done well.

    I am not a fan of touchscreen! I usually switch to newer BB fairly often, but if RIM is moving toward touchscreen phones, I guess I will be holding on to my Bold for a while.

    I hate touchscreen as they are more proned to becoming scratched and there is no real benefit of them as opposed to a none touch screen phone, except yes a bigger screen ... whoopy you can watch porn larger on them... LOL

    "The Samsung Epix has the right idea"

    Now THERE'S a funny statement!

    I had one of those bricks before I got my Bold and it was one of the most buggy, unusable phones I've ever had.

    It will be a while before the Touchscreen Bold comes out, but not too long. I would love to see this device in action; it would be the best of both worlds for some people.

    I prefer a scrollwheel on a blackberry instead of a touchscreen.

    so for sure the driftwood is a touch screen phone with a full physical querty keyboard? cuz im itching for a touch screen but my house is a dead zone. an earthquake last year knocked down tons of verizon towers in my area last summer. the driftwood would be the perfect replacement

    To the OP, don't worry, enjoy your Bold. I first heard of the Magnum about 4 months ago and there is still no release date in sight.

    I have no problems with touchscreens, but personally I like the non touchscreens better. They seem to have bugs or more of a lag than non touchscreen phones.
