This is what happens when they need to divert attention from the product itself...... Adding distractions to the video so people will not focus on what is, in my opinion, a not so exciting new OS with regards to what the competition offer.

I'll admit, my dumb self bought the Storm 1 when I was hearing rumors of storm 2. Big mistake, sucks that Verizon didn't forwarn how soon it was coming and let us upgrade within a reasonable price if bought within 90 days or 6 months. With my NE2 plan I won't be due for upgrade til 2011 of April. Let me just say if there is no ramping and raving of this Blackberry 6 & Storm 3 by then, I'm out. Hate to be that way, but I want a phone that I'm not constantly waiting for an update to the OS and doing a quick pull every 3 hours to. Wish RIM was as committed to us consumers with a great product as we are to defending it's brand. I won't be the 1st to jump ship, but with BB being my 2nd smartphone, it's very dissappointing and annoying how they're constantly having to reconfig their apps. Big upset too not making their orig storm compatible to OS 6 if they're truly been working on it for a while. Two years is a long time to work on an OS and then to just throw Storm 1 out there without configuring it to be compatible to it is even more dissapointing and shows they don't know what they're doing. JMHO...take it with a grain of salt. I'm blue in the face from holding my breath..and just tired.
Anyone notice how the virtual OS 6 in the video was based on touchscreen?
That can only mean 2 things:
1. Either it is a version thought for the storm 2, in which case it proves that it will be compatible
2. Storm 3 will not be a slider
Edit. Sorry forgot to add another option:
3. RIM have no idea what they're doing (to quote Brett) lol

Didn't Lazaridis just tell us that touch screens are a fad? Where's the 6.0 qwerty? Or better yet why can't we have qwerty and touchscreen?
thats wut im thinkin.. the slider can still be touchscreen. and touchscreens arent exactly a fad.. they have easily taken over the market and are appealing to a large amount of consumers.. i better hear something bout either the storm 3 .. a touch screen and qwerty phone.. and/or the slider b4 this ends.. if not.. then RIM will of let us all down once again.. their potential is so boundless.. but they are just extra dumb.. the 6 OS is somethin to look forward to.. but if the device isnt worth it then wut? i just pray that there will be a storm 3 with a good 6 OS build waiting for my @ the end of my NE2 ..

I really doubt 6.0 will run with 128MB. They bumped up the 9650 to 512MB to make it "OS 6 Ready." Most likely 256 is going to be the minimum.
