    I know for a fact that there will be a device with the Javelin form factor that has a keyboard, and a touchscreen!! I got some inside info from a gentleman last year while on vacation in the Caymans. I believe it is the "Magnum", but I am not sure. I would definitely like to see another version of the Storm drop as well, especially with wifi, and one that will work on AT&T's 3G network as well. Which was supposed to be out in Feburary, but has been delayed, of course, lol. This year and next are going to be great for RIM and new devices. You will soon see

    Nice article by the way. I wish I had read it before typing all this out, as it says everything I just did, lol. Oh well!!!

    The Magnum rumor started in Oct 2008, supposed to be revealed at WES this month. Don't hold you breath...

    No, the device your talking about is the "pluto". looks like a Bold, but has a touch screen. The magnum is just a 3g 8900.

    I believe the "pluto" was the 9900 model, i believe that got scratched (dont hold that to me), but there is a 99xx series which is believed to be touch and full qwerty keyboard. They could have also changed the name from Magnum to Pluto or Pluto to Magnum, you have to remember its only a code name. The Niagara was only a codename, now they are going to release it as the Tour. The storm is the only BlackBerry to keep its codename.

    Now that I look at it more, it looks like a bold with the storm screen blended into it.
