    Sounds like the 'Pluto' to me.
    What sounds like the "Pluto"?

    Wow! Just when you're looking forward to one device, something else trumps it! LOL! Thx man...
    Lol. No problem. But I wouldn't keep your hopes up with a release date soon, there really hasn't been word about that really I don't think.

    can someone make a spreadsheet that compares the specs of the niagra to the bold storm and 8900 ?

    the 9630 looks to be a storm minus the touch screen plus a keyboard...internally anyway...I'm basing this off the fact it uses the same processor (MSM7600). Now does this mean it will only have 1 channel of audio i.e. the storm?

    It's got the insides of the 8900 and 9000. It only has a Storm looking casing on it.

    BGR described it as "the amazing keypad of the Bold, the display and the menu buttons of the Curve 8900 and the silhouette of the Storm"

    I was kind of hoping it would be a little less wide like the Jav.
    Turns out it's just a teeeeeeny bit wider and taller. It is however thinner.

    Curve
    4.20
    2.40
    .60


    Niagra
    4.46
    2.48
    .55

    Really? Its thinner? I thought RIM was marketing the 8900 as the "thinnest full QWERTY smartphone ever". I guess they'll have to change that then!

    ya know, i just went back and looked and indeed you are correct! As long as it's not as laggy as my Storm was when it first came out, this is still a must have!

    no problem my dude...but I think the storms major malfunction was within the coding and not the hardware. I think we'll be ok

    109X60X13.5 or 4.29 X 2.36 X .53

    Niagara

    113.5 X 63 X 14

    TBD = To Be Determined, in other words we don't know but I would offer an educated guess that it will be MicroUSB since the Storm and PerlFlip have that.

    The size seems just about right for my use. This would replace the phone currently use for talking (an LG Voyager) so I really want something that fits nicely in my hand, and this is very close to the Storm which is excellent :-)
