SALT AND PEPPER, 21 Sep 2010the blackberry battery is bad regardless i use the 9700 and after using the 9000 i thought thy... morei have blackberry curve 8520 and batterey is amazing over 3days before bat goes dead, which is impressive these days for phones! you must not have charged the battery correctly on first use!
I had a go on one today, faster than galaxy, easier than iphone, feels solid. Currently using iPhone, Nokia N900, 9700 Bold and 9300 Curve but this Torch 9800 is amazing, slick OS. I'm gonna eBay 3 of the above phones and upgrade to this bad boy!
Hello all, i'm about to buy this cel and i wanna know about the battery life... I've been using the curve 8520 but my battery lasts just 1 day maybe cuz i'm a hard bbm user. So please help me, should i get the Torch?? I'm about to stick a two years plan with the device

jade, 20 Sep 2010it is being released on pre order from today with vodafoneits been on pre order with voda for over a week
Bought one last week. Being a Blackberry user before I personally find that BB Torch is a fantastic phone especially for those 50+ where you can see better as the frame is bigger compared to 9700 or 9000.
It has the choice of touch screen or qwartery button that BB users are familiar with. For professional who frequently use most of the phone for calling, smses and emails and once a while media this Torch is a great phone. It's camera of 5 megapixel produces sharp pictures.
One drawback is if you connects to bluetooth , the battery runs out fast. RIM need to improvised the battery usage time.
Overall this phone is great for professional and those who are 50+ as this Torch is no longer strain to eyes sight.
Nixson Kasli, 19 Sep 2010Is there someone can tell me where to bulk buying in hongkong? Have a plan to import to indonesiaI have a supplier in the name of Suraj, you can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Overall, it is a nice phone. it has a beautiful camera that can be compared to a pocket digital camera. The touchscreen has been improved a lot as compared to storm 2. BUTTT!!! the battery for the phone is bad!! (not as good as blackberry 9700) kinda upset with the performance of the battery.. I think the handset requires big improvement on the battery. Beside that, I am happy with this latest premium blackberry series.
when the hell are they releasing this phone via orange the suspense is killing me?
