BlackBerry Bold 9780 video

The BlackBerry Bold 9780 has been following the same steps as just about every leaked 'Berry in the past:  some rumors about the device emerge, then some photos leak out, followed by videos, all before RIM even acknowledges that the handset even exists.  We still haven't heard so much as a peep (or BBM message), let alone anything official, about the 9780 from RIM, but that hasn't stopped Beste Product from giving us a breakdown of the new handset and BlackBerry 6.  The reviewer really likes both the universal search and browser in BB 6, but ultimately doesn't feel that RIM's latest effort is enough to compete when it comes to the more social aspects of the products.  You can check out the whole video, which is in Dutch but has English subtitles, below.

While some Bold 9700 owners may feel a little burned by the 9780's extra RAM and improved camera, at least there's the fact that the 9700 will be upgraded to BB 6 at some point in the future.  Like I said, RIM hasn't officially announced the 9780 just yet, so there's no word on when we'll see it arrive and which carriers will be launching it.  Considering that AT&T and T-Mobile both offer the 9700, though, I'd say that it's a good bet that they'll get the 9780, too.  So, what do you 'Berry addicts out there think about the Bold 9780?  Are you excited about BlackBerry 6?
