right, not normally one to go for sliders (same with touch screen) and when i first saw this phone i didnt really look at it twice, just stumbled on a video on yourtube and i'm quite taken by it. Alot of the reviewers mentioned its heavy and thats what puts me off, i cant see it released in the UK yet.

I loved my Bold 9000 but just found it big for the pocket, love my 9700 but i get mobile itchy fingers and looking around for ideas..... not sure though that I could live with the weight or the size (thickness) of the 9800.....

hmmmm any 9700 owners moved over and regretted it or perhaps love it and wont turn back.
