I dont think Blackberry ever needed to make the phone a verticaal slide phone,it kinda take away from its class. Also, if they opted for slide feature, it would look moe classier as a horizontal slide with screen facing its user 16:9.
This maybe a heavy phone and YES RIM maybe a little late in the software, but they really took the time and took in what consumers wanted and they shall receive. Don't judge it until you feel the power. No phones will be perfect. Blackberry is Blackberry
This phone is seriously out dated in ever category. The hardware sucks it has the same half ass touch screen as the storm, The processor sucks, The screen resolution sucks big time. Companies like Google, Apple and Microsoft are bringing the pain to the smart phone market and RIM still insist on making this retro feeling device. This thing needs to be placed in a category with Afros and a jukebox.

The technology in this phone sucks. they took an unsuccessful Storm and mixed it with a bold and slapped some paint on the OS and they think this is revolutionary. Every phone is using at least a 1 gig processor now and has a high resolution screen on it. Even the look is outdated. At least give me another color to choose from on launch day.
When is the Torch 9800 launching in India?
kindly revert back to the same as soon as possible...

bbuser, 05 Aug 2010I'm sorry but 384kbps 3G speeds = FAILMy Nokia E63 also have same 3G speed as Blackberry Torch has. And it is not a fail for Nokia.
again no front facing cam.. hope that they will put some on the final product... i want so badly.. :D
This is exactly what any business person would want. The features speak for themselves. Sure phone for all usage. It has catered for all purposes.
outdated phone specs, sluggish performance, a phone left that should be left in 2008

2) Stylus is for delicate drawings , doodling , jotting ideas etc
3) Dual SIM is not a commodity a necassity to divide you personal and professional live ,... local usage versus international usage (where you can insert a local sim and bring down your costs)

Only thing improved besides the OS is the camera which is huge. Otherwise nothing is new. BB took its previous model and iphone touchscreen style and put it into one phone. Qwerty keyboard owns touchscreen texting anyday.

A Blackberry phone is the only option if you want security. Any other phone can be intercepted. That's why Saudi Arabia is forbidding Blackberry.
