    I'm probably in the minority in saying that I HATE touch screen devices. They always look so dirty with all of the finger prints. With that said, at least RIM has done it right by including a physical keyboard on the Torch instead of a virtual one like the iPhone. I hope they continue to do so with any future devices.

    I hate typing on touchscreens, the only thing thats attractive about them to me is the fact that they have large screens and thats awesome... which is why to me the torch is the perfect device...

    I've been harping at RIM from the day I heard that no front facing cameras were going to come with the new devices. I mentioned in the iMessage/BBM comparison video that how cool would it be to be chatting with someone on BBM and then click a button to invite them to video chat. This would be HUGE!

    The storm with front facing camera WOW what a thought. Rim has been good to me I just wish they could really catch up with it's competitors but the truth is I don't see it.

    I would love to see a new one come out, but with a screen that has less resistance when using it. it feels like it's a device where typing takes to long. I agree there is a market and therefor they should build it.
    The line up would be a great one. Torch 2, Bold 4 (okay, Bold 99**), new Curve and a Storm / Volt. A device for every kind of user. This would surely get RIM back on track. This company is far from done.
    I have a Storm and I LOVE IT....for sure the 9500 sucked pre OS5, but after OS5 it became a much better device....currently I have a 9550 and I love it even more....it has Wi-Fi…and that already tops the 9500….not to mentioned the gain in memory it has….and about SurePress….personally I think it’s much better than the Torch, because you can at least highlight on the screen before you actually select anything on the screen….the Torch’s screen can be annoying at times, because as soon as you touch it you are committed to the selection….I wouldn’t go for anything other than a touch screen….and if indeed a beefed up Storm is on the way I will be one of the first ones to jump on it….

    And Joe….it is like that Bee Gees song!

    This is exactly what I'm talking about... I couldn't disagree more with this but that's why this idea of RIM having two touchscreen phones would be genius... cuz we dont have to agree! Certain people can have one type and others another type... win-win
