    Question bb Dakota?

    im not the source and im not sure if i can post the link of the sourece, but i just find out about this and i like it... how many bb'x do i have to buy?

    Well, maybe not exactly multi-touch really. So sue me. :-)
    But I would certainly be all thumbs to use one of the next BlackBerry phones on RIM’s product line if The Cool Guy Report’s report is accurate. After so many Berry aficionados clamoring for a BlackBerry with both QWERTY keyboard and touch screen, maybe RIM has finally given in: a BlackBerry with more human interaction input interfaces than you can wag a finger at.

    Remember a while ago, probably 6 months ago, we all heard about this “mythical” Berry called “The Magnum”? We all thought it was going to have a touchscreen, full QWERTY keyboard, and it was supposed to be the size of a Bold. So, what ever happened to that phone?I guess the answer to that one is easy:
    1) Name: Dakota
    2) Size: Bold size
    3) full QWERTY keyboard
    4) GSM 3G speeds
    5) Has a trackpad — yes, you read correctly
    6) Has a touchscreen (this is where the angels start singing)
    7) Its development is AHEAD of the Blackberry Essex. Yep, we are going to see this bad boy really soon.
    Would you be interested in buying it?

    I’m glad it’s not an iPhone, or someone would quickly scare up a Hopscotch app, or something like that.

    So the crucial question is: would you be interested in buying it? Come on, we like it when an article gets over a hundred comments.

    Sounds like it will be another first generation guinea pig device for berry aficionados.

    I'll pass on this round.
    Is RIM heading in the right direction? Sure, I think they are trying, yet let's get the first touchscreen device functioning properly before the intergrations begin.

    Not for me, even if the specs are that good, I just don't like touchscreen devices, unless there is a slider full qwerty keyboard

    I feel like i've been waiting on the magnum now dakota since march. As far as the phones design, as i first imagined, the design would be just like the bold, except you can touch the screen. Don't want a slider. When it really comes down to it, i will buy the device if it looks as nice as the bold, touch screen or not. imo the 9700 fell short in the looks dept and i am disgusted that rim is calling it a bold, due to that and the miniature size. I feel like they ruined the 'Bold' name. Just b/c they gave it a leather back didn't mean they had to call it that. I would pay anything for the exact design of the 9000 with 256 flash mem, better screen resolution (not that its bad) & better camera. I know its kinda off topic but damn.

    We pull batteries, swap bezels, break contracts, and stay up all night. We change OSes like we change underwear. If our phones could make us fly, we still wouldn't be satisfied. We're cut from a different cloth. A better breed. We are BlackBerry.

    I feel like this device is taking forever. i heard rumours of a front facing camera which seem to no longer be true. this says it has a trackpad, now im hearing it does not. im really disappointed if both those things are gone. it really would have been the ultimate berry for me....well not really, once skyfire is out then its the ultimate berry.
