Donhils, 06 Dec 2011Then am having a rethink about buying the phone bcos I have need to use Java applications. I'l... moreYou don't have any problem with the apps you just mentioned, blackberry handles them well, i have all three includin the south african based app 2go, do some research 1st before complaining!
I used BB 9700 for 2 years, i have to nokia and samsung.
I think the big difference between BB and other phone only on email app. BB always realtime recieved email, other phones must be actived before and not realtime recieved email like short msg.
my unit has black front with dark gray battery cover. i find the keys of the 9790 more comfortable to use though. i like the slim factor like the 9360 but that makes the screen smaller than the 9900 (win some, lose some)

However in reply to your question about what a BB cannot do today is, generate a mobile Wifi Hotspot to use with a tablet (tether is too combersome), cannot do Angry Birds :-), cannot do turn by turn navigation like Navfree (not available for BB) but however since Im in love with 9790...Im hoping one day these features will be available to use.
In the mobile Music Play time upto 33 Hours. but other mobiles music play time is too low.Its the best advantage of this mobile.
BB 9790 have Full Qwert Keypad. so,easy for typing messages,etc. its business type phone.

Further to know what android or Iphone has to offer you must visit their app store and you will realise what's missing in BB. I am not promoting any company or neither wish to degrade any. But truth is truth. I myself use BB 9780, BB 9900, Nokia C 7 and Samsung Galaxy W. so I am very much aware what I am talking about. I do travel lot around Asia so very much aware about social habits among advanced Asian nations and Asian living in under developed nations. If any further queries don't hesitate to post. I warmly welcome bad language, anger and frustration too as its also the part of life and meant to teach and make you a better person. Good luck.
RB, 16 Dec 2011You said Android is for playing games and entertainment and BB is for Business. Are you sure..... moreYou have just shown us how ignorant and clueless you are, there's what is called freedom of choice and i know u haven't heard of that because you are dumb as your post tells it all. Please I'll like to know what android and ios can do that a blackberry cannot and please try to be mature and don't say things like android has faster processor, brighter screen, smooth os, etc. I'm yet to find out what my blackberry can't do that your toys can do!!!
Can anyone pls tell me wats d battery back of d fone????is it better than bold9900 or is jus same???
RB, 16 Dec 2011You said Android is for playing games and entertainment and BB is for Business. Are you sure..... morehmmm "typical" answer from a guy from a "well developed country" eh? Maybe true,but this is a BB page! not android! so go praise your little green man on an android page and respect people who have different likes and preferences!
serenity, 14 Dec 2011been using it since the launch on 26th nov, i really like it though its a business phone which... moreYou said Android is for playing games and entertainment and BB is for Business. Are you sure...it seems you are new to the world of technology. The number of business applications you will find in Android Market, you wont find even 5% of business applications on BB App World. Andorid has full support of attachments with emails whereas in BB even a basic attachment with email sometimes begs to be opened on BB. No Acrobat reader, no Flash support, no document editor, no GPS navigation software. Everything is pay, pay and pay. A sub 100$ Android machines can do wonders but when it comes to BB even a 500$ machine shy out when it comes to performance in real world. BB is facing a slow down as Nokia faced 2 years back. Nokia is still struggling whereas BB is on path to demise. In Under developed economies BB is a must have tool as people are still ignorant and trying to build their lives by adopting modern ways and have a very strange opinion that BB is a best tool of technology, whereas developed nations have adopted Androids, Ipads and Iphones as their tools as these devices are much well connected and have power and efficiency to conduct day to day busniness as well as entertainment activities. BBs are very popular in underdeveloped or developing nations like India, Phillipines, Indonesia, Combodia in Asia. But when it comes to serious or professional front, Androids and Iphones rule. BBs are only excellent with BB Messenger and in undeveloped nations people tend to chat a lot and spent atleast 4 to 5 hours of their day connected with friends and families through their BBMs. BB is a chatting tool rather than a business tool and hence popular in undeveloped economies.
Anonymous, 14 Dec 2011Can anyone please confirm if the device is supporting whatsapp? And how is bettry life time?Yes, bb supports what's app not line though
