    Aww I want one of these sooo bad ! I`m such a fan of Blackberry products, its similar to the iPad but I`d buy this before the iPad anyday :D Sooooo much better quality with a Blackberry product than anything by Apple.

    This device looks pretty AWESOME as it is, but…
    I hope the 4G version will have Voice Calling via speaker phone or Bluetooth, like the Samsung Galaxy Tab was supposed to have in the USA! Europe gets it – why don’t we!!!?

    It really S#*ks that the US wireless carriers ‘stifle’ what could/should be an amazing device… WHY??? – ($$$?)

    Comments???
    More Info.???
    Educate Me???
    I’m REALLY into all the emerging technologies in the area of cellphones/wireless/portable devices, and want to learn more!
    Thanx!
