correct, all the droids with keyboards havent been great, the one that was great is two years old. We might not see physical keyboards anytime soon or ever on future top of the line androids.

If this was released earlier, it still be relavent news. people forgot about it, and then moved on to iPhones and Androids

Personally I find I can type way faster and more accurately on the physical keyboard, which is key as I use BBM/PIN/emails on my phone a lot for work. Touch screen typing annoys me.


My BBM/BIS/Push emails have been restored now, been working for the last 25mins.

i do miss the physical keyboard, but like a lot of things in life! once u adapt, the results are sometimes great!

I'm much more efficient on a QWERTY

I find I can type just as fast on a touch screen keyboard. Especially with smart keyboard pro being able to add my words to its dictionary, it'll fix my typing mistakes on the fly

If BIS is down then bbm is down.

Broswer still works because it doesn't rely on BIS.

It is just like if your phone wasn't a blackberry and you have data.

LOL I guess all the good names were gone...ChatON.

...Also looks like jazzed up Whats App. A few more features but essentially the same thing; from what it looks like at least.

Doesn't all data get routed through RIM's servers? Regardless of what app it is for compression and caching? My friends have no browsing, no whatsapp, nothing.

I don't understand this inability to use Whats App...Is it because you guys still had data enabled and not wifi? I was under the impression that Whats App is not data dependent??

Wifi works, but when I'm in the car no Google Maps, no browsing, no email...

My "upgrade" time is here, I might go to a Galaxy S2 or a Nexus Prime instead. The 9900 is not that attractive to me, and the dependency of BB on BIS' servers is really annoying.
