    it will probably have the color scheme of the Porsche model, which to me is quite distinct but assertive. Gives me the impression of a quality device. All black just isn't that impressive to me.

    I personally love the look because it goes against everything RIM has done before. They need a new look, a new beginning and a new brand. It's about time they caught up to the real world and realized when people want a touchscreen device, they want it to be big.

    Moreover, if the BBX OS is what is being promised to be, then they could hand me the ugliest phone and I would be happy with it. I'd rather have a brick looking phone that does some amazing things, than a gorgeous looking phone that freezes and lacks in many aspects (See Bold 9700, Torch 9800; etc).
    Hey now, don't hate on the 9700. My phone is awesome. Maybe it was just operator error

    And I agree with RIM needing a new-ish look. But I've been down the full touchscreen phone road (*shudder*) and it didn't end well. Nothing will ever beat a full QWERTY keyboard, if you ask me. Bold 9900 here I come Best of both worlds.

    On another note. I do think this phone is really awesome looking. One thing I would change is to make the black portion equal on all four sides. I'm far too OCD to handle the inequality in any sort of graceful manner.

    Well even more reason to actually have a front facing flash. People are going to be using that to take pictures of themselves, and they definitely won't want the picture to turn out too dark.

    I'd actually prefer more useful screen over design. Like the recent showed with screen taking up the entire front of the device.

    Good point, just another way to make taking pictures easier.

    No no no no no no no a front facing camera does not need a flash that makes no sense... if the PlayBook has taught us anything is it doesn't need it... The idea of a full touchscreen device with 0 bezel is nice but not practical if you're doing away with the buttons. If find navigation on the PlayBook to be so easy and fluid. So much so that when I'm using an iPod touch, I wanna swipe up to minimize an app (true story)

    What has the PlayBook taught us about not needing a front facing flash?
