With more and more information coming about the BlackBerry 7 devices, it would be nice if RIM would just announce them already. We've seen them listed in various places on RIM's own website, as well as "accidental" videos on carrier websites, so how about an official word? Until then, you can check out the latest news and rumors about these devices in the blogs, and then head on over to the CrackBerry forums and see what's up with your fellow CrackBerry addicts. Below is a sample of some interesting threads you won't want to miss.

Found an interesting article you want to share with CrackBerry Nation? Have a burning question about that feature you just can't figure out?

BB7 devices will not have QNX but QNX will be able to run the stuff that runs on BB7 and also Android Apps.
The release date is uncertain but middle of next year sounds plausible.

On BB7 devices. If you like BB now, you should love the BB7 devices. I have a Torch now and it was the fastest device BB made to date, which frankly was nice because I got much less hour glass. The BB7 devices will pack twice the processing speed, more RAM, 50% better screen resolution, more onboard memory, features such as NFC, HD video and much more.

I wish BB was better at marketing. These devices are not going to be abandoned for QNX but will be the new mid level devices for years to come. There will always be people that won't need or want the QNX super phone.

I love my Torch but will get the BB7 device and probably be happy to stick to it for two or three years. By that time, all devices, including QNX driven ones will have changed again.

It's been all over this site for while! Many see these BB7 devices as a stop gap. QNX is rumoured for next year - probably in just one 'superphone'.

BB7 or otherwise, I can't wait to get my hands on either the new 9930 or the new BB Touch 9850...hurry up, Rogers!!!
