Imo I think they would do better if they had a slide out keyboard, now it has a tiny screen the same size and resolution as my camera's.

All of these Blackberries just cater to the small group of people who live behind the facade of professional businessmen. If you were really sending off that many emails to the point you need a keyboard, you need an actual flip keyboard or slide keyboard, because this does not do the trick.

t is still the best device out there for it, hands down.

Milk, you're absolutely correct, Blackberry is really starting to fall behind. Granted they aren't really catering to the same market as the android, or iOS user, but when business individuals such as myself see such attractive options in other phones, that's when BB starts to get in trouble.

Been itching to throw my Blackberry in the trash since I got it. Its limits plus Sprint's nerfs are making me wish I went Android like I wanted.

The slide out keyboards are a week spot for someone who uses them a lot. Just like the flip phones I used to go through 2 or 3 a year because they wear out. I have an older 8330 the only problem is the trackball just like the old mouse had. I will be upgrading this year an looking for a BB without the trackball.

This seems kind of pointless imo. If you want a phone like this from Blackberry, then the torch seems like a much better option. At least the touchscreen is big enough to be practical. Then, if you need the keyboard, you just slide the phone up.

I got rid of my BlackBerry several months ago after I hit some ridiculous artificial limitation on email sizes that left me with a "Message truncated due to size" instead of the attachment I needed. This was pretty much the last straw and now I'm an Droid X owner.

I like Blackberry devices, all except the Bold line which use that style keyboard. I would wish RIM would make a high end version of the Curve, since that is the keyboard style I like. I also played with the Torch and did like the layout.

The device does need to grow in size, they should think about making a 4" LCD based model with a slide out (side) keyboard

I am very interested in this new Blackberry. I currently have an HTC Touch Pro 2, but this spends most of its time getting fixed as slide out keyboard keeps giving problems.
