    Its a dime late dollar short! I feel a number of people will be lured away to new releases by other manufacturers. Sorry RIM wake up and smell the competition!!!

    Im a loyal BB man, but I'm quite disappointed with BB, the browser seems 10 years behind when compared to other devices, not only is slow is also not visually appealing, all in all if I were business heavy and had to rely heavily on a phone the BB would not be it. very often i find myself relying on the browser and it just SUCK! i will keep my BB but id be lying if i said I didnt look at other devices with high desire.

    I say launch it today. Let the BlackBerry crowd test it, find its bugs of any, report back and have it official no later than the end of the year. At least get it in our hands and try to make faithful BB users happy. The last thing I want to see is an even more overdue browser launch be plagued with problems and then it takes well into 2011 to have it corrected. Give it to the masses right now.

    Lack of decent browser and apps and games is making really hard to stick with BB. If there is no real resolution in these areas, I'll be looking into something else when my contract is up for renewal

    i agree with the masses here. while blackberries hold a ton of potential it falls short in many areas with the browser leading the way. and with a slew of highly touted smartphones coming out this year and the way that blackberry is handling the release of the browser i fear we might start seeing a mass exodus of bb users. i have only had a blackberry device for a little over a year now i am already getting weary of how things evolve. i know all the different platforms have their short comings, but hasn't the browser been a sore spot for bb users for sometime now?

    It's aboout other things

    I think that so many things has been said about it... but we still are forgetting 2 important things: Mobile designed pages and services and mobile browsing experience.

    The first one takes not only RIM devices users but ANY mobile device that browse to the question: do we need better mobile browsers or better mobile services?? as long as technology keeps mobile devices in lower perfomance than pc's, going to the mobile serevices issue could give more benefits rather than focusing on devices, that obviously, with the constant neccessary devices development.

    The second thing, the user experience is hardly marked by Iphone's experience... not for granted apple enhaced the experience with the ipad. I'm a 9700 user, and no matter how better the webkit get, i can imagine myself browsing with my finger on the trackpad on a small screen.

    Speed browsing is a not a goal per se, it's a browsing experience enhacer and please, never forget, our devices are the intermediary between the service and our need.

    Some are talking about the fiscal year 2010 - claiming it would end in Feb...and therefore, the new browser should be due shortly... hey guys if I am not wrong Feb 2010 is the end of the fiscal year 2009 - so be prepared for a long wait. RIM's just acquired a comp. being able to give them a new browser...but even they need some time... boy, I do hope, that I am completely wrong!!!

    I sure hope this is untrue and that a webkit browser is just around the corner. I really like my Storm, even on At&t, and am now out of contract. You know that itch the starts when you'd like a new phone, well its started and I've been holding off on scratching that itch for a while now. At present I jump to Opera Mini to browse, but if RIM doesn't or can't get a better browser out soon (read by summer or before Sprint launches the Supersonic with wifi 4g), I might just jump on the Android band wagon. I've played with a couple of HTC Android phones and I wanna tell you, they're pretty darn nice devices.
