    I'm looking to get a Blackberry within the next week or so.

    Should I get a 9700 or is there something new that's coming very soon?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Thank for the response... I'm tired of my T-Mobile Wing, it's slow even with a cooked ROM.

    The only thing I'm gona miss is the touch screen, but I guess you can't have everything.

    If you want a touch screen, wait for the Cliq XT.

    Wait for the slider, if you can. Bigger screen.

    If I were you, I would wait for the slider. You get touch screen and physical keyboard.

    Slider is going to be a long wait. Plus now, TMO will upgrade you every year, even if you are on two year contracts.

    I've had a few berry's now and they just keep getting better. I moved from a 8900 to the 9700 and I love it. 3G, WiFi, and GPS make this a complete phone (8900 lacked 3G).

    I can't wait to get my new 9700!

    I think the slider will be out end of this year or early next year, which by then I can prolly get it easily under the upgrade plan.

    Thanks for all your replies!

    Yeah Slider might be a good idea because I believe it has everything the Bold has ad both virtual and physical keyboard. I just don't care for the looks of it.

    With that said it is hard to beat the 9700 if you are like me and don't like the cosmetics of the Slider.

    I would personally like to see a horizontal slider... not vertical.

    Yeah the new upgrade policy is what convinced me to go to the 9700.

    The sooner you go with the 9700, the sooner you get a great new Blackberry AND the sooner you are eligible to get another new one within a year.

    This new policy is so awesome.

    Yeah, I like the looks of the Nexus One. I've heard that it was a little buggy but the new updates have improved it.

    I've enjoyed reading your encouraging words about the 9700. I wonder, however, if any of the 9700 fans had also considered an Android phone against the Bold. I'm in that predicament right now, and the decision is tough. Your comments are appreciated! (Upgrading from Pearl 8120 to either 9700 or Moto Cliq - early summer - TMo customer).

    Yes i did consider the droid phones. but i decided to go with the bold yesterday. i am just not ready for a touch screen, just by alot of the trouble shooting i have done with the touch screens already **work in a ts call center**. Not only that, it has the advantage of a track pad instead of a track ball. and even though i am going to be helping my mom for awhile **she got one as well**, she is liking it more and more each day that we have them. This is my first BB and I am glad I picked this one.
