    I am new to the Blackberry World, I currently have a Palm Treo 680, and have been looking to upgrade to the Blackberry Bold for a while now. I'm up for an upgrade in about 30 days, and was getting stoked to purchase the Bold. I then saw that the RIM was "coming out" with the Pluto sometime Q4 09. I really like the option of having a touchscreen & full keyboard like on my Treo, and if they could couple that with the Blackberry's superior email, that would be the best of both worlds. My question is, What are the odds of the Pluto coming out Q4 09? Would it be worth just holding onto the Palm for now, then upgrading later, or do people feel that the Pluto will be pushed back even further?

    Thanks in advance,

    No one knows when it will come out, but probably early 2010.

    get a bold and sign a 1 yr contract, you'll be good to go.

    The pluto hasn't been announced yet, so the dates being put out there are just predictions. But WES is coming up so RIM could announce it then and a release date. But if you don't wanna do all that just get a Bold, its a great device and I'm thinking about buying one myself to replace my Curve 8310.

    I am in the same boat with blueberry. Get the bold, see if you can get it for 1 year so that if the new blackberry device IS a touchscreen boldish-curve, or whatever it is... you can get it when it comes out.

    my only problem with the bold is the crappy camera. give it a 3.2 and its pretty much as close to perfect as youre gonna get for the next year

    RIM is usually behind in their launches, so Q4 09 actually would probably mean Q1 or Q2 in 2010.

    This is true, but who really uses their Blackberry for a camera anymore?

    Camera on a BB is worthless... so many other things you can do with it!
