    Nice...But I myself want it to be a Qwerty device, even though (I think) that has been ruled out. If it's not qwerty then I'm not getting it. Simple as can be.

    I hope that RIM does a little style change with the QNX phones.

    The traditional BB style is looking dated.

    Time for some changes..

    QNX would be the perfect time to introduce the candybar slider.

    Thats funny because I started from a picture of the Bold 9900 and just expanded. Here is a blog post you might find interesting......

    Other designs are possible: Sales of Apple's iPhone should be banned

    ... change screen to 16:9AR (or even 1.85 to 1 for programming comfort)

    Agree this is just the Touch 9850 with new OS and hardware. C'mon RIM use the lamborghini/porsche design on Crackberry news!

    Bring this thing into the next century....

    Really?
    How much style change can you make on an all touch device?
    All touch screen phones are basically just a glass slab with only minor differences.

    LOL, thanks for the article...
    I know that it's a Bold 9900, what i was talking about is when i named it iblackberry (It feels almost as a sin to say iblackberry...) it's because on Blackberry you have the Trackpad but i should name it optimus-berry.

    PS; I think that Blackberry is very unique.

    I hate an all touch device. Last one I owned, I cursed every time I'd try to type a message and it typed the wrong letters. Even worse was the text prediction sucked on it.

    I thought it would be nice to take advantage of one of the best features of the playbook and add gestures. I think it would be impractical to increase the bezel size, so instead I removed two icons and added a gesture area. To emphasis this I added a faded border around this region that would be behind the front glass. This could be a large trackpad and support swipe gestures (A feature I think should be added to the playbook). Good? Bad?

    Also had to re-add the left convenience button and forward facing camera

    I hope they keep the qwerty keyboard, without it it doesn't feel like a blackberry. Should be interesting I'm sure RIM will release multiple phones with the QNX os, kind of what they did for blackberry 7 phones.

    You can turn text prediction off. I had to. I use my phone for work sometimes and there's a lot of words in my work dictionary that my BB thought weren't words. I'm also fairly confident I know what my name is and my BB kept trying to tell me my name was something else. Made me want to throw my phone at the wall until I turned that stupid predict your text feature off.

    Like a pearl? That'd mean bring back that KB with 2 letters on each key? QW ER TY UI OP ? I hated that KB style. I had it on my 7100i and hated it. If I wanted to double tap, I'd chase zombies with Woody Harrelson.

    Offensive, much?

    Screenshot looks like nothing but OS7 with some UI tweaks. It will send a bad signal to non-BB users that they want to sell to. Top part with notificatiosn and stuff shouldn't be there all the time. Should come down with a gesture like the top bar with battery/reception/etc. on WP7.

    Great work! However, sorry bro. .... but to me it looks like a 2007 smartphone, no offence! Thanks for the work though!

    I want a device exactly like the 9850 with the following:

    4" screen
    Metal frame
    FFC
    Different buttons

    As long as we're racking up a wish list, I think RIM would do quite well with this sort of design.

    The Aston Martin Phone - Hannah Elliott - Forbes

    Plus, Apple can't sue for looking 'familiar'

    The blackberry have a fantastic device . The Bold with BIS and BES it is fantastic . It is the jewel .It did the difference because was the first .

    They need improve 100% in this phone . More speed and applications as voipbuster and skype , work correct . Also prepared for the new and 4G.

    Iphone and BB9860 are fashion...but are not a bold . Bold it is a truck for all work.

    If RIM wish compete with Iphone ...Ok.

    But please RIM don't leave / take off the qwerty or azerty .

    Another thing . . RIM need improve their marketing and peolpe network .

    More advertising . Picture Fresh and directed young and intelligent . People dynamic . For the executive
