    HI, I want to buy a new blackberry, and my current target is Blackberry 9700.

    However, should I wait for a while until RIM release its new flagship instead of buying a 9700?


    thank you all

    Playing that game will mean you never buy any BB as there are always going to be new models in the pipeline waiting to be released. Define your needs, research the phones, and then buy what works best for you.

    I agree with kwkid buy the BB that suits your needs now as opposed to waiting for some future phone that is the greatest thing ever.
    If you want to procrastinate then you might want to wait for the 9100 and see if you like the smaller form factor or whether you like Sure Type as opposed to QWERTY keyboards.

    Pick from the currently available devices. Not much will change by waiting on a
    new device as they are pretty much variations on existing themes.

    Take the advice above mine and go from there.

    Just get the 9700 right now. Technology is always changing so you'll be waiting along time for that right BB.

    RIM's new flagship will release in the US around November. The 9700 will continue to be supported for at least another year. If you need it, get it now. The 9700 isn't exactly a slouch.

    No point waiting, as the specs are not gonna be that much of a difference. I'll suggest getting the 9700.

    OK, thank you all. I think I will buy 9700 at the beginning of May (I'm an international student, and need to wait for my pay check to buy it )

    thank you all
