    I've had my beloved Bold 9000 (in the UK) now for 18 months and its time for a free upgrade.
    I love the size and feel of my bold and am looking for a modern equivilent.

    What models are similar? I like the full keyboard as I type a lot! Also like a camera although the bolds camera is sufficent.

    Help please !

    9700 is the logical choice, BUT it's a bit smaller although not too much. A cool slider is coming if you can hold out a month or 3 or 4, that will have a touch screen AND full keyboard, the 9800. The 9700, has a 3.2 camera (compared to the 2.0 that 9000 has), and the 9800 is expected to have either the 3.2 or possibly a 5.0.

    Doubt we'll see the slider that soon in the UK to be honest, I'm getting an upgrade next wednesday (at the mo I have a 8900) and I'm going for the 9700 (going to cost 99 but will be worth it!) I'd go for the 9700 if I were you there really isn't much BB choice in the UK at the moment.

    I upgraded to the Storm 2 9520 from the bold 9000, couple of months ago. It is my first ever touch screen phone and I'm really enjoying it. It will take a week or two to get used to the touch interface. I would recommend you to have a play with the 9520 in a local O2 or vodafone store and see whether you like it or not... If you don't, go with the 9700...

    thank!s everyone, the 9700 doesnt look as good as the bold, are there any on the imediate horizon? if I take an upgrade it will be for 24 months.

    I have an iphone for a work phone and I hate it! certainly dont like touchscreens.
