    Nevermind ^ 9700 is for the Onyx
    I think *maybe* it will be the 9650, as the Storm 2 will be the 9550, replacing the last digits with 50 instead of 30 to mark CDMA WiFi

    LOL; I can't figure out if this a joke or not...

    In the case that this is real: if the Essex takes the exact body of the Tour, the 9700 will still look way better.

    Even if the Onyx looks better, the Essex will be CDMA, whereas the Onyx is still a GSM-exclusive device (for now, anyway).

    This is the NEXT CDMA phone? So you are implying it will be out BEFORE the 9550?

    I can't tell you what the "surprise" i yets, because I'm not sure if its on the phone just for now, and only available for pre production models, or if its gonna make it all the way to actual production.

    Currently this is believed to be heading to sprint. There was a fierce wireless article that quoted a sprint exec saying there would be a wifi enabled tour on sprint next year. Assuming the essex is the device that exec was referring to, this will go to sprint.

    Eventually this device will probably be on other carriers as well (verizon, telus, etc.). There has not been much talk on that though. Alternatively, sprint could be picking this up as an exclusive, but there is currently no evidence to support that theory.

    the surprise is probably a front facing camera.

    A Blackberry exclusive would be huge for Sprint.

    I believe that Essex county is where RIM is located...True that Essex UK is wheree it was named after.
    Research In Motion is based in Waterloo, Ontario.


    I'm in desperate need of a new phone, I don't think I can wait much longer. Waiting for the Bold 9700 is bad enough.
