As some others have said OS 6.0 is looking pretty darn sexay!
Unfortunatly that device makes me throw up a little everytime I see it.
Its so god awful I can't really do justice to how disgusting that piece of shit really is.
OS 6.0 on that pile of dung is like lipstick on a dead rotting pig.
I think this device has real potential if made a little more "sexy" like mirren has stated. The clam shell device is big for people who have problems with keeping thier screen safeguarded.
Outside of that... Give me 6.0 on a bold 9650 and I will be a happier fella. I am not a fan myself of this flip/clam shell look, or for its purpose.
I think that RIM is trying to roll with the times here... Good try... but the 'real' followers are not going to really leap after this one... SORRY RIM... this is #fail...
ill get one the day it comes out. no more phone cases, no more pocket dialing, no more unresponsive touch screens (storm 1 and 2).
seriously stoked about this.
Well RIM is also playing it smart as well...The hot topic is now OS 6.0. I can't see them making a 6.0 for current devices, this way people would need to upgrade to their newer devices or purchase their newer devices creating more revenue for RIM.
As much as I say I dislike it, I know I'll end up getting one to try out.
Don't know why so much people don't like this clamshell concept...
I do- but it needs a little polishing( sharper edges, more chrome or some other shiny metal, bigger internal screen, more razr like overall...) This is too much shell-ish, and reminds me of last century stuff- yeah, the 90's....
You have got to be kidding me!!!!
The rest of the cell phone world is coming up with sleek, innovative, nice handsets, and then we have rim, who in their infinite wisdom decided to come up with this piece of crap clamshell device, wake up rim this is the reason apple, and android will be kicking the crap out of you by the end of the year.
And by the way, I own and love my BB 9000, if this is all you can come up with hello Android.:aargh4:

That depends on what you consider newer devices. Anything below the 8330 was not slated to get 5.0. If say a device like the Storm 9550 was not slated to get OS 6.0 I think you would see a wholesale revolt. How can they roll out a new OS (if what the BGR is saying is correct) in June or July and not have it be usable on the 9550. That is what 8 months after the release of the 9550. If companies can not be relied on to support a device with newer software 8 months after its release then I would have to say its time to stop supporting that company. They are working on getting the higher Android builds on the G1 for god sakes.

I do believe that OS 6.0 will be coming to the 9550, RIM wouldn't be that stupid.
