Why i love BB is for one there is no rapid devaluation in prices of the handsets since the releases are limited to 1 or two in a year. second is the superb build quality which is atleast 100% better than Nokia. No creaking back covers,no heavy looking phones which are featherweight!. i had a BB 9700 which was purchased for 29990 and when i upgraded to the Torch 9800 i could get resale of 23500/- which is decent. in my Nokia days, i remember there used to be a price correction several times because of which i used to end up losing more than 50% when a newer model was released. even now the trend continues. Nokia N8 isnt released as yet, but Nokia N9 is rumoured to launch by december. a perosn who invests on N8 will surely have heartbreaks when N9 Launches. this isnt the case with Blackberry! i even turned off BIS services for a week to check on whether i could get along with Nokia Messaging service which is a cheaper alternative. but the lag in message delivery, slow browsing etc made me get BIS back at twice the speed i had temporarily de-activated it! now with the BB9800 Torch, things have come a full circle for the menu, features, icons, social feeds, touch screen display, the alerts ribbon on the top are mind blowing..

> In reply to [deleted post]Yes it works in India. i recieved mine on August 16th. had to import the generic service Browser books from the BB9700 as the OS 6.0 Service books for Browsing have not been released in India and so they didnt get pushedhowever the device registered itself on the network. gtalk, FB, Yahoo, MSN, Emails were working. after a import, browsing is fine and BB9800 Rocks!!! the BEST BB EVER!

BB should be apologising for the Storms, and if this is it, then the two most prominent features; the processor and the screen means they are rather dismissive of customer discontent. Further market decline will surely follow and sympathy is hard to find.

About the Price: 850$
About built Quality: It initially gives you a heavy rubbery feel. Almost like a solid device, the slide is a pleasure. The screen is really very responsive i havent used Iphone so i cant compare, but i will just say can it be further better than this phone.
BB OS 6: It is second to none! i really enjoy exploring the phone. the camera is also very good.
Audio Quality: just a bit louder than 9700 and a bit more clear like storm.
Key Pad: It seems it has been made of metal:-) its really responsive. the on screen keypad is good in landscape mode.
Final words: And why shouldn't it be all sugar and honey... we are paying money for that so dont be excited RIM isnt giving this for free you are paying big money and i assume it will be sold for 500$ after a month. Dont forget the phone is real threat to the already struggling Iphone... "RIM HAD 4 A'S IN ITS SLEEVES" SALAM FOR ALL DUDES FROM A PASHTOON" DA KHUDAI PA AMAN!

When is your review due Dear GSMarena ? This looks like the best BB by far and the only reason for low sales seem to be its price, so it's been slashed by half, can it be found for around 500 euros or less in Europe ?
Can we get some user feedback ?

Already a 50% price cut tells you something about the luke warm response this phone has received.
