    Does anybody notice that the picture with his email on it looks as if it can do EMS?

    Does that also mean that texts could go over 160 characters from a blackberry? Or is that a totally different thing?

    That is what it means (but only to other Verizon phones). That is the only thing I miss about the Dare (other than the touchscreen).
    WOW. Pudding...

    Well it technically doesn't go over 160 as no SMS does more than 160 but the phone will be able to split messages longer than 160 characters into multiple messages of 160 character lengths. Something no 'Berry has been able to do until now perhaps? Maybe RIM or is it VZW, saw all these threads on HoFo and Crackberry about the inablilty to do something a dumbphone can do.

    As I said on CB don't get your hopes up yet as you see the second pic has it in GSM mode. We all know that once it is in that mode, the SMS option changes to extra paging per message if needed.

    Really? It can do that? I never knew. So if I was running my Storm on a GSM network it would be able to do that as well? Interesting. I must give that a try.

    I was looking at the Gemini pics and thought to myself, 'Wouldn't it be nice if the optical trackball was on the Tour?' It seemed to work very smoothly in the video Kevin made at Crackberry.

    I disagree here. Although I have never owned a BlackBerry, anytime I have used one I really enjoyed navigating with the trackball. I personally hate the look of the Gemini, but I have also never really found track pads to be more convenient for me. They give the illusion of a touchscreen type of navigation, and I am just sick of that.

    I have been following this phone for a very long time (since last May) and have known for quite some time that this will be my first BlackBerry.

    Is there something wrong with making a pre-release thread? The other thread was getting very long and off-topic near the end. Sorry for trying to help out...



    If you were being sarcastic then
