    the onyx WILL have a trackpad, and a similar keyboard to the tours.
    so no trackball then!

    yeah im sure i will just wait. my curve is starting to frustrate me but i can probably hold off. plus im actually waiting for the magnum or pluto to see what they have in store and im sure we will know much more about them once the onyx is released so i can make my final decision then. unless my curve decides otherwise.
    Same here. Ill be waiting for the Onyx but depending on the Magnum's RD I might just wait it out for one of those instead.

    I was speaking to Rogers customer service earlier and she said there is nothing of the sort to mention any release of the onyx or anything.

    She said that they usually get 6-8 months advanced notice of upcoming models that they will be carrying etc... And so she said not to hold my breath for a 2009 release anytime soon. I'm guessing it will most likely be a Q1-Q2 2010 release.

    in regards to the trackpad vs trackball i believe you guys should choose after either testing both or looking at reviews when it comes out.

    afterall, all the "inside" guys seem to always have the same view of rim's innovative advances. Look at the storm. Further, reference the few threads of individuals "out of the loop" who made negative reviews, albeit as unbiased as possible, and were shot down by the "in" guys.

    just a thought. still loving the rim fundamentals tho. and understand the sales point of rim.

    I am pretty sure you won't see the Onyx released this year... Maybe a Q1-Q2 2010 release.

    Are you sure you can wait that long?

    That's the problem with these things, the next "best" thing is always around the corner.

    Its not gonna be coming in 2010. Crucial has said that rim is trying to ge this berry out soon.which means there are many more berries on the way. Things look very bright for blackberrians.

    This SUCKS. I saw the tour, and I'm so Jealous. We don't even know when ours is coming out. This is pretty weak. I might get a 8320 off of ebay to hold me over..they are like 185. Ahhh! But I know if I were to switch from tmobile and get verizon, I'd be mad as **** when the driftwood came out.

    i sure hope it will have the track pad. I want Onyx to be my next berry. I think Onyx is the 3G curve we've been waiting for, and will have the 9300 series number. So assuming regular product assignment, 9310, 9320, 9330.

    People have stated the onyx as the bold's successor.

    To me I think it is indeed the Bold's successor . Basically , its RIM's flagship model

    I agree that it's going to be the bold successor, I do hope we get it over in the UK though because after what i've seen and read i'd like it to be my next model.

    I like the size of the curve 8900 but it's a shame it isn't 3G.

    I like the Curve 8900 but the keyboard puts me off , too much noise and feels cheap .

    The Onyx is what ive been waiting for ! Fully loaded and has the same size as the Curve 8900 !!

    Anyone know any approximate release dates ?

    The Onyx has not entered MP yet. But should launch before the end of the year. It will release with OS 5.0 also.

    I read an article over at the BGR that the release date could be as early as September but no guarantees.

    Can't wait for the Onyx to come out. I am looking at getting either the bold or waiting for the Onyx. Hoping the onyx comes out in september as it is better everything than the bold except design. I would like to see the leather-like battery casing and the silver trim from the bold on the onyx. Also, instead of the black plastic buttons on the side, I would rather it be the metal ones the bold has.

    Hate to be a heretic, but the reason I haven't gone for a Bold already is that I don't like the design.

    It's too wide for my pocket, the faux leather is passe and the use of chrome in this instance is a little garish. That's my opinion of course, and you are more than welcome to disagree.

    I like the understatement of the Onyx...
