We know a lot of you came over from BlackBerry. And with the PlayBook tablet about to run Android applications, we're keeping a close eye on what ol' RIM's up to. This week, it's up to BlackBerry World in Orlando, and our pals at CrackBerry are leading the coverage.

So far, they've gotten one new device, the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930. To our untrained (or overly jaded) eyes, it looks like a BlackBerry, all right. But apparently it's as thin as just about anything we've seen, lightweight, and has a stunning 287ppi pixel density on a (small) 2.8-inch touchscreen.

No, we're not about to give up our beloved Android phone anytime soon. How about you guys? Check out some video after the break, and hit up more at the source link.
