This phone is only good when compared to an older Blackberry. In other words this phone has no business in the same breath as the HTC Desire or the Iphone.
The only people that will buy this crap are people who have blackberries. They are just too damn obsessed with the keyboard. This phone is only worth buying if its less then 80 dollers on a 3 year contract.
Goodluck to Blackberry as your stock plummets.
I had two Bold 9700 and change both to Torch and I am loving it. I do owen iPhone and it is as good as my BB. Great job Apple and Blackberry.
Anonymous, 01 Sep 2010is the touch screen on the torch only for the media or can you type out msges from it as well.it has full qwerty virtual keyboard
I've upgraded to the Torch 9800 from the Bold 9000. I have been around pretty much every BB model out there as I am an Administrator at a forum Exclusively for Blackberry's (Remko's Mobile Forum free DL in App World). The BB Torch 9800 is by far the BEST BB to date. Huge improvements in just about every category. The best improvement RIM did was the "increase" in the App Memory. I'm not constantly forced to reboot all the time due to the lack of App Memory. Hopefully they will continue expanding the App Memory with future models. However for now, RIM has out done them selves with the Torch. Great Job!!! A MUST HAVE if you're a Blackberry addict!!
hi everyone,,, jus check out this video comparing samsung cetus( windows phone 7) with this crap(bb os 6). anybody in an intention to buy this one will not.its been priced more than iphone4. but i dont think its that much worth. the touchscreen is like resistive one.

is the touch screen on the torch only for the media or can you type out msges from it as well.
when is GSMarena gona post a review abt this ph? been waiting so long. PLx need to know mre abt dis phone. thx.
faisal, 30 Aug 2010i have beenusing this phone for few days and think this is the best bb Rim has made till now.
... moreHi Faisal,
Can you please tell me more about that phone, how much you got it for and whether you are experiencing problems with the phone's software.
does this phone take good picture.cos i have bb before they not taking good picture.plz help.thanks
[deleted post]Probably worthwhile waiting for the Torch for the new Blackberry OS 6. Also the browser is much better, and that will make a big difference between the two phones. I am currently using a 9700, which is good, but as soon as I can I will try and upgrade to a Torch.
Bombo, 31 Aug 2010Dear Faisal, is this mobile available now in Kuwit? how much does it cost there? and where did... moredear Bombo
As far as i know its not in kuwait yet officially but i think there is a shop in shraq called my phone ..its on the street where they sell cars ...this shop might have it ..
I got mine from States
submariner, 31 Aug 2010you are such a bone head, of course iPhone is way different from the BB Torch as the Torch is ... morebuddy, i dont know wat kind of "high end user" you are, but this phone aint sh!t high-end user. You need to open ur eyes and have a look around wat a real high end user phone is. This phone has low-resolution screen, a slow processor, is 100% plastic, has 5 mp camera with one led flash, and less than 4gb built in memory. sorry to say but the specs on this phone were from last year.
REAL high-end users today are using, samsung galaxy, moto xt720 and droid, nokia n900, iphone 4, moto droid x, htc g2.....
all these phones have 480p screens, amoled technologies, most of them have 1ghz processors... and 8-32gb memory built in with seperate graphics accelerators.
(now talk about high end user cause i can't do sh!t all with this piece of crap)
