    Well, given how long it took for total destruction of Palm after the launch of the Pre, I'm gonna give Blackberry a few years to hang around before I think about boarding that ship.. Don't feel like getting burned again.

    Well I do know my company is already testing for BB10 and hopefully devices will be rolled out soon... I'm holding out getting a BlackBerry for work now. I do want to try that Q10 but don't want to pay for it, they're giving out 9320 Curves.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    That's shiny, but with a 720x720 display already on board, I'd kill for a Q10 running webOS 4.0. (A girl can dream.)

    Or you can have the slider with 1280x720...

    They're patenting the ornamental design, not the form factor. Look and feel of the entire phone if you will.

    Yeah, but to me, 720x720 is plenty sufficient. Sort of like the idea of always open keyboard. Would've gotten a Pixi years ago if the screen resolution and specs weren't so limp next to the Pre line.
