    Couldn't agree more Brett. All I got out of the video was that there is a new media player. For all I know that was the 6.0 theme that's out now. I'm not imprerssed YET. I'm hoping I'm blown away when its actually released.

    Im sorry to say Im with you all the way Brett.

    It really is make or break time for RIM and its die hard fans.
    If OS 6 doesnt really change the way we use our devices we will all end up leaving and I bet the only place we go will be Android.

    I say this because we all love installing OS's every week, we pull batteries for fun, we enjoy testing new apps and then deleting them because they are rubbish, in all, we are Blackberry, and RIM better remember that.

    The consumer has spoken in regard to Palm and thats now in trouble. If RIM make 15 million devices in 12 months but only sell 200,000 to corporate users they are gonna lose out, Big Time!

    The consumer is RIM's new best friend and as such should be treated with respect. Thats why OS 6 and the new devices need to be good.

    Well thats my view anyway

    :haha::haha::haha:

    So I guess I'm with the minority here and feel that the blackberry is starting to really fall behind, comparable to how Palm once lead the market and just died, I see the same thing for RIM if they don't start to innovate rather than recycle the same thing over and over with a few new buttons, and maybe a new feature here and there.

    When was the last time BlackBerry made some headlines about a device outside of this site? The only thing they do remotely cool is come up with fancy nicknames, and honestly I'm not sure if they do that, or if the blogs do it.

    I really don't have much faith in them with OS 6, I really don't see anything ground breaking in the video, so until more details emerge, I'll remain my pessimistic self.

    I'm always eager to see any new OS developments that RIM rolls out. With that said, I use several apps religiously that I count on to run my life. I will not casually jump to 6.0 unless and until I know that the apps I use on 5.0 are compatible with 6.0.

    Same topic (6.0) but different issue ... threaded sms. I DETEST threaded sms. I know, I know, some like it. If you like it fine. Please realize that sms was never designed to function as a messenger program and that is what BB Messenger, GTalk, AOL and all those other messenger programs are suppose to do. For reasons I've never understood, RIM followed what Apple did and forced threaded messaging down everyone's throat. I've hated threaded sms since the day I got my 9700. I've lived with it but not happily. With 6.0, I want RIM to give us the option TO TURN THREADED SMS OFF. Now please realize, I did not say "do away with it." If there are those out there who want threaded sms, fine. But give the rest of us the ability to go back to the traditional sms format and not be forced to live with threaded sms.

    A choice is all I ask. Allow us to make a choice of turning it on or turning it off.

    PLEASE RIM LISTEN!

    I've said that the 9700 will be my last BlackBerry unless RIM corrects this problem. Yes Apple and others do threaded sms. But theirs works at least somewhat well. RIM's 5.0 threaded sms is horrible and has been from day 1 and in every 5.0 OS I've tested and I believe I've tested them all.

    So let's get threaded sms cleaned up in 6.0 and keep BlackBerry the best in the business!

    I have to agree with Brett on this one. We have all been down the garden path and continue to support RIM and hang in there. Looking foward to 6.0 being all that the S2 should be. But I was not impressed with the video given the attempt to over sell it with action that was distracting.

    Looking foward to 6.0 sooner than later in full working order.

    So far OS6 is pushing The BlackEyedPeas and the new Media UI....I am interested in less prancing....and more in-depth real time use of the new OS. I am kind giddy about that pop up screen in the ad where you can choose SMS/EMAIL/PhoneCall/etc etc etc. Its nice like our APP Switcher only....more useful. It'd be great if everything is ridiculously customizable on this OS. And what would make it even MOREEEEE fantastic is if RIM emailed me the 6 OS before anyone else got it :hail:

    But joking aside.....lets see this thing in action. Not with Fergie screaming BOOM BOOM BOOM and business women and men dancing around. MORE OS-6!!!!!!!
