    Just wondering what model the Crackberry community will be picking up, I'll be picking up the 9900 because I like the look of the keyboard and the screen but I could see why the 9790 could be preferred.

    Another question, will both models be the same price or will the 9900 be the flagship model?

    I have only known the 97xx series and absolutely love them. I was so looking forward to the 9900 and had my heart set on it, however, I feel somewhat conflicted now with the emergence of the 9790. I guess I need to wait and see what the 9900 looks like and how it feels in my hands. But the tempation is there to hold off for the 9790 if I can get the internals of the 9900 in the form factor of the 97xx that I have grown to know and love. I am on the fence........darn you RIM!!! lol

    I don't believe the 9790 will be released. I may be wrong, but I don't see it happening because I saw the demo video for it months ago.

    Plus, RIM themselves have said there will be seven new devices released;
    9900 GSM
    9930 CDMA
    9850 GSM
    9860 CDMA
    9810 GSM - AT&T
    9350 GSM
    9360 CDMA

    May not be 100% correct but those are the seven new devices.

    Thanks for that information. Just out of interest, which handset do you think sounds better out if the 9900 and the 9790 and why?

    I would prefer the 9900 because it has a much more sleek look with the chrome band and all-around overhauled look. Also, I don't know much about the specs of the 9790 but I can imagine it would be touchscreen and have all the same hardware as the 9900.

    9900 > 9790

    9860 or bust.. but will be getting the 9900 for **** and giggles.. the bigger screen vs the 97XX series will be better for browsing i assume.

    PLus I'm used to my iphone 4 massive screen so i'm hoping the 9860 is as good as it looks.

    The size of the 9900 is what I want. So for me, there's no debate; 9900

    You should make a poll. Is it too late to make a poll after the thread has started?

    No idea, I'm pretty new to the forums (registered my account February, first post was yesterday) and I'm on my iPod Touch. I'll give it a go.

    EDIT: Added poll.

    I voted for 9930 because I like the larger keypad. I'll most likely get an 8530 though from Virgin Mobile USA because I'm poor.

    Doesn't bother me, 9780, 9790 or 9900. Whichever hits wind mobile next year, i'll be on it. Or i'll have the 9780.

    Well???

    Since the 9790 will probably not materialize I will be going with the 9900. A poll with one choice.

    I was referring to American releases. I know I should probably acknowledge other countries, but I'm only thoroughly - for the most part - familiar with American telecom.

    I'm going to try to get a 9930 when it comes out for Verizon, but just depends on the financial situation at the time of release.

    The leaked pics, code name, tutorial videos, beta OS version, and release date mean the 9790 almost definitely WILL materialise...
    so it IS a poll with two choices

    Let me know when it does. Oh, and let me know if it's a "Bold". Also let me know where I can get one in the US.
