    After reading the possibility of OS 6.0 coming out for the 9700 being less likely than introducing a 9700 successor, when do you guys think we can expect the 9700 successor? Maybe November (since thats when the 9700 came out)? I'm not sure of the life cycle of a model before the next gen comes out.

    How far in advance do you think we'll be seeing the prototypes in a Crackberry video?

    Lastly, since I'm only on my second BB, is there a chance of AT&T allowing an early upgrade option, like they do yearly for the iPhones?

    Thanks for all your help guys, I appreciate it.

    I think the iPhone is an exception: i.e. because the main feature is hype, and fans get so frenzied, they have no choice but to allow early upgrades so as to stop large scale rioting, disorder and looting. (and possibly the apocolypse.)

    As for the new Bold 9800 slider, I think it should be out in the second half of this year hopefully. Maybe November like you said.

    So you dont think a "normal" style BB 97000 replacement will be out this year? Example, the 9000 to 9700. Thanks.

    Haven't seen any, no. The only rumoured Bold is the 9800 slider at the moment.

    Thank God! I really didn't want to have to pay full price for a new bold.. Though I would Since that the case are we more likely to see 5.0 remain on 9700, or a 6.0 upgrade for the 9700?

    According to a source in some of the 9800 threads in the rumored devices section the 9800 has not even hit field testing yet... so that rules out June and July release..

    His "educated" guess was October.

    While the 9700 may run 6.0 do not wait on RIM to deliver it that fast. New OS sells units and they will want to sell some 9800 sliders soon.

    6.0 is not that big of a deal and I am not crazy about sliders.

    The big news is the new iPhone, this will dominate AT&T in June and not 6.0!

    it will get leaked long before any carrier releases it, just like 5.0.

    separately, i think the "iPhone 4G" is a complete misnomer consider that it, well, isn't 4G. a lot of casual consumers aren't going to realize that.
