The hottest device coming out of Research in Motion right now is the BlackBerry Bold 9700.  The hottest news coming out of Research in Motion is OpenGL (3D graphics) support.  The BlackBerry Bold 970o, unfortunately, doesn’t support OpenGL.

The question to you is does the Bold 9700 still sound just as hot?

Currently, only the BlackBerry Storm2 and the BlackBerry Curve 8530 support OpenGL ES.  RIM has stated that new CDMA BlackBerry devices with Qualcomm chipsets going forward will support OpenGL as well.  I am sure that GSM devices will eventually get it, but, how long will they have to wait?

At least for a short time, there will clearly be a case of the haves and the have nots when it comes to application support.
