no scratch resistant display, i dont understand how rim releases there primary top phone without an up to date screen.
No hot swap for memory card no auto focus not so good battery no front camera for video calls. hey!
the phone cost a fortune. no buy.
had this phone for a week, good device but missing all the best aplications like shazam, yahoo finace etc for the new os7...they should speed that up...battery is foolish to make a good device with a bad battery, if ever ur out and dont go home that night, ur phone wont last 2 days atall with normal smartphone usage. Im sure rim could have made a better battery, bringing in a 1900mhz battery would make this phone rise higher than it should in the mobile market.
Haters always gonna hate ... everyone has its own opinion so i won't even bother complaining about BB or praising it.
is the camera HD? cause it did not mentioned but the sales promoter who sell me the mobile told me its a HD camera, any one knows for sure.
I am changing my Iphone 4 to the blackberry and i much prefer blackberry, a few years ago i had the pearl and hated it the second i held it but this new blackberry im in love with.
battery life may not be the best but whats the problem with carrying a charger... iphone 4 has terrible signal is completely made of glass which isnt practical. unlike the bb..
VS, 10 Sep 2011I am considering getting this handset. It will be my first Blackberry after 16 years of Nokia... moreGlad to hear your going to get an upgrade. Don't get me wrong the 9900 is great but IF your phone are mainly used calls and battery is important to you then get the 9700 as this will standby for just over a week! If your going to make calls you'd even get 4-5 days out of this!! Of course that depends on how heavy your calls are!!! The 9900 will last 2 -3 days but as i've recently got this it's really hard to measure as I'm using the iphone more and the 9900 is more on standby! Battery isn't as bad what people make out to be!Good luck with your purchase!

However, just for calls it will hold the 2-3 days... but for example the 9700 goes for more than a weekwith light use.
i had a blackberry 9000 bold, currently using a bold 9780. my only opinion about the battery life is a blackberry is always in your hand instead of the pocket like a nokia. It is very addictive and its not just for showing off but there's just so much to do with it.

BATTERY. Backup is very bad less than one day I charge it two times daily iam usuing BB service but battery finish very fast. Even sams s2 battery. Takes longer time to drain inspite of very large screen and dual processor strange but its a fact battery is very baddddd
it seems like BB engineers it very hard to find the technology and a way to put video call in their products, as you all know that there's no BB is supporting video call..
If you are looking for a Toyish, Playful and something you can flatter about, this phone is not for you. If you are looking for a professional, useful, smart, faster, good looking, good signal quality, Good Camera, Best Music and Video Player, you are looking for this phone. I have tried both IPhone3/4 , Android HTC/ Samsung and Nokia Symbian phones but none of those could satisfy me as i couold not get ris of a toyish feeling while holding them in hand. Specially I am not big fan of touch screens. But this phone satisfies both a Keyboard's Tactile feeling and when evern needed a touch screen with Optimal resolution quality. which is backed by a mighty muscular process and reasonablly loaded with Ram. This Phone satifies your all needes that a Pro can encounter on day to day Business. Camera Quality is one of the best in class. I am not refering to all hi fi allures now a days companies offer to sell their stuff. But if you need a good resolution camera to preserve the event and with some useful options that might help increase productivity, this phone is for you. Phone is really fast, Storng Signals, Web browser is really really fast and responsive, typing email or text is breeze with this phone.
Battery might have been issue for some fokls but i think it can be managed. First, Switch the phone from HSDPA to Edge(Use HSDPA wheneven needed and save money), Stop continuly running Apps like weather apps etc, use an App Battery Booster(free) and your Quest for relyable Battery can be satisfied.
Video and Music quality is really impressive. Last night i loaded a 168MB HD video on it and it was one of the best video experince i ever had on any phone. Same file was unable to be played on BB9780, HTC Desire and Desire Z (Android) I Phone 3.
RIM realy should pay attention on its Battery power extention regardless of considering Phone Thikness. As i said earlier, these phone are used by Pro's not teen agers and loose Pants Yo Yo dudes.
I am really Happy to have this phone. Thanks RIM

It will be my first Blackberry after 16 years of Nokia... moreWhy on earth do you want this BB if ypu mainly ust doing voice calls?
You can´t be serious if you leaving nokia for this if you want good battery time and the voice and reception signal quality.
You must be insane actually. Some people should really be questioned if they are insane.
The batterytime will kill you. Just a way to wash your maonet away the drain.
