RIM Will Soon Start Courting Buyers

Much Like Palm,

Google will buy RIM for their patents and make their OS a paid app for the Android Platform.

RIM will not see the end of Q1 2013 (end of Q2 at the latest)

Bold 9930 or Torch 9850 (no qwerty)?

I'm researching Smart Phones. Given that I'm still in the stone age (flip phone), I'm not going to be very big on apps or screen size. I've settled on BB. The major difference I see between the Bold 9930 and Torch 9850 is the virtual vs physical keyboard? I wont be doing emails on the phone but a little texting. Which one is a better choice?

I think it's really nice

That Verizon allows people to upgrade the software on their handsets. It is cool to see that they are so incredibly lenient and don't lock people into the same old software year after year like some carriers.

I love Verizon.

Please add a number row!

I want to beg RIM, there is more than enough room on top of your excellent keyboard to add another row for a dedicated numeric key row, which would make texting & typing sooo much easier.!

It would become my favorite phone! And I'm sure everyone else would appreciate it!

Please consider it!! Thanks.

Kind of a idea

I guess it would save money because a company wouldn't have to pay for ID cards anymore, but at least you could leave your ID card at home when you go out.

My 2 cents

Let me start by sayin I'm a huge blackberry fan. Crackberry gets At least $5 from me per month. I went from the 9650 to the 9930 and right back to the 9650 the following day. With no wifi hotspot and enough bugs and poor battery life to make your head spin the 9930 is not yet ready for the serious business user. And let's face it. Isn't that who RIM is targeting? If I decide I want the next toy from VZW i'll go with the iPhone 5. If not I'll hang on to my 9650 which is bullet proof and save he games for my iPod touch.

9930 vs. Evo 3D vs. Apple

A 1.2 Ghz processor on the new 9930 bring RIM back into the ring against Android and Apple. The question is if the 9930 is going to be ascrificing battery life in order to suport such a processor...I hope not because that would defeat the purpose

Ehhh. It's a phone. With BB7 .. I'm sure this will impress anyone who has lived under a rock since '05 or will finally cash in on their upgrade and finally ditch their Treo 600 by Handspring... ((( YAWN )))

Shotgun approach

Shoot enough pellets and pray one of them stick. It worked for android so maybe there is hope for blackberry if the OS is as customizable as android and the hardware still doesn't look like all the old blackberry's. Apple has been the only one that has gotten away with the same old design and even they are feeling the pressure to make a change now.

Next couple of years shall be interesting. Cool

What I was Waiting For?

Loved the original Bold but really wanted the touch screen (for doing almost everything else except typing!). It was so hard giving it up but got the Torch. Loved the touch screen but did not like the keypad (too small). The Torch is also slow in some applications (including the calendar). Also did not like the slider, phone does not feel solid. Can't wait to try the Touch Bold. Shoot, I gave my wife the Bold (she does not like the Torch at all) and she has all my nice bold accessories which she will never give me back! Comment about the screen, I personally never use the internet on my cell and don't need the bigger screen of the Torch. Most of the websites I do go to have mobile versions of their websites that work just fine. Glad ...
