> 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.

I have had most of the top of the line smart phones in the past 5 years many of them being other Blackberries, HTC, Samsung, Nokia, Palm, Sony Ericsson, iphones and the list goes on and on. I no longer feel that there is something better out there i feel like this best phone ever. The touch screen in my opinion is equal to or better than the iphone 4 and the BB screen is better quality than the iphone. Having the full qwerty slide out key pad or optional touch key pad makes this BB well ahead of the iphone 4. If any one is looking for a like new iphone 4 like new used for 2 days unlocked 32G just reply to this post.

Iphone is full of mistakes that makes you nervous, the signal problem, it gets broken if it falls from 0.5 meter and the bluetooth security that denies sending files.
