    Of course there are certain factors that make the Bold more appealing than the Incredible but those factors alone don't economically add up to the raw power of the Incredible. <snip> ...when that $200 can go towards a phone with an 8mp camera, 1ghz processor, wireless N, and built in 8 gigs of storage.
    And the Android OS, don't forget to subract thousands of dollars for sharing all your email, financial information, contacts, etc. with every 13 year old who hacks into Google this week.

    Android OS may be the biggest security risk and the biggest cause of ID theft ever.....

    I noticed the back door on the 9650 is the same as the 9630. Does anyone know if RIM fixed the issue with the loose back door (battery door/cover)? I know many Tour owners have this issue and it appears to be a design flaw.

    I'm the first to admit I don't know a lot about digital cameras, but when most digital cameras out there are 10 megapixel and up, why are the cameras in blackberrys so behind the times? The best they have is a 3.2 megapixel, that seems pretty lame. Is it due to the limited size in the case, or is it a cost thing?

    Just because they have a 10 megapixel and up doesn't necessarily mean the pictures are any nicer. The size of the lenses are still pretty much the same, so the picture quality isn't that much improved.

    Here's an article talking about this in NYtimes, http://www.nytimes.com/2007/02/08/te...y/08pogue.html

    Not entirely true but for arguments sake, wouldn't it be better for them marketing wise to put out a higher mega pixel camera to keep up with the other phone manufacturers so they can compete on a more level playing field?

    Exactly! That is what has happened to all the P&S cameras in recent years with the battle of who can have the highest MP; as MPs have gone up, IQ has gone down.

    Yeah; does seems kind typical RIM...now my question still is putting it next to the HTC Incredible, doesn't the Incredible seem at least one step ahead of the 9650? I mean it really seems like it is already time for a replacement for the Bold 9650 as it would had been more impressive had it come out about 6 months ago. However, today is seems the competition has already leapfrogged up and over the Bold 9650.
