    The 9650 can be unlocked its coming to verizon with sim slot in may. And from the look of it and the youtube videos I watched and clearly since everyone is saying its a tour with a trackpad. Doesn't the tour have a bigger more spaceous keypad than the 9700? Just asking.

    no, the keyboards are exactly the same size, except the bottom row of keys (space, shift etc) are slightly taller, but the 9650 will have the same shorter size as the 9700. if you've ever used a tour you'd realize there's nothing that makes it any better than a 9700, and this new Bold 9650 is the exact same phone as the tour with wifi, trackpad, and more memory.

    here are two comparison pictures i just took to prove my point:



    the new bold is larger in size and heavier because it packs all the CDMA circuitry for verizon/sprint's network; like i said before, all this is useless on any other network so buying a 9650 to unlock it onto a GSM/HSPDA network is excessive when you have the 9700 sitting there.

    no one here knows how much memory OS 6.0 will require, and everything you think and hear is just speculation. there is no reason it won't run great on the 9700, as they showcased webkit on the 9700 itself many months ago.

    No...I love my 9700 and I'm not worried about the 9700 and OS 6.0. Like someone else mentioned, they have been using a 9700 to show examples so I'm not worried about it not being able to handle it.

    I think for all of the reasons listed above...I shall be sticking with my 9700. Such a nice device...I don't think the extra memory will serve me any purposes at the time being.

    I thought the 9650 was a CDMA phone? Where does it say T Mobile and AT&T are releasing it?

    It's a World Phone, so it has both CDMA and GSM, but as mentioned, its designed for Euro GSM bands and not really for the US GSM...

    I really can't imagine ANYONE that just bought a new(er) phone would trade it in for something that is of a lesser model....

    Not really for TMO gsm bands since t-mobile operates on their own diff fm At&t

    Even if the new Bold WAS coming to T-Mobile, I don't see any real reason to upgrade to it.

    I checked out the specs and the only thing that it has that is BETTER than the 9700 is the upgraded memory. That's it...same everything else, even same camera.

    I'm sorry but for me, that's not worth the upgrade, especially when the 9700 supposedly will work fine with the webkit browser.
