I can't wait to get the new Blackberry 9700 -- right now I'm operating on the 8530 and my old Javelin, which I just use as a phone. Javelin is on its last legs, the trackball is only functioning at 30 percent capacity. Plus I'd love to get a better camera on my Blackberry for mobile blogging. Just found this UK review of the 9700 -- my favorite line is where the reviewer says the original Bold has a "muffin top." HA!
