PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I know everyone loved the last "exciting" BB video showing OS6, but here is another glimpse of what's coming. Seems to just have what every other smartphone OS has nowadays; social media tie ins, a web browser, and hopefully a useful touchscreen. nothing real eye opening other than the fact that its on a BB. The vid shows a good example of the touchscreen keyboard - I'm holding up hope that they keep the famous BB form factor with a real qwerty.

I hadn't seen that video either, thanks for the link... Actually, I didn't mind the first dancer all that much ;-)

Oh, I should say, I'm not a hardware keyboard kinda guy either. I got an iJam back in 2003 or 2004 and have never wanted to go back since.

I hate the idea of making a phone "fatter" (or less screen real estate) just to have a keyboard that my "fat" fingers struggle to press anyway...

Having said that, it's annoying when you accidentally touch the screen and type something. I was mucking around with an iPod recently and that part of the experience did annoy me (luckily you can attach to a real keyboard)...

Vote 1 for virtual keyboard... LOL
