this phone is a C+ to me... the battery is a big big problem even for moderate users like me...even the older samsung/iphones seem better designed
okok..so they produce unwanted phones but at least my company issues them for for free...wait my company switched to samsung last year ! yipee no more blackberrys
i have experience with blackberry.i will buy this only if they throw in an iphone, how bout that for poor customer experience !
I use to love BB for its quality..but lately its getting to be like WANG COMPUTERS of the 1980s...squeezing in all this features that no-one really wants n ignoring the specs that customers do want...blackberry pls listen to your customers again..plus improve your customer service pls.some of your front line staff r really unknowledgable & even nasty
my company use to issue BB in 2007...now it issues iphones and even the BB loyalist like myself admit that BBs are outdated... the apps are sadly lacking...for sure apps r not a must have...but they do add to the overall experience... cant see myself now with a BB unless they improve by at least 90%
Great phone... sure press should still be used! front cam needed. other than that its a great fone... cant wait to get one!
I recently changed from the iphone4 to the BB torch 9800 and I would not go back. But at the end of the day it all comes down to personal preference.
the only reason why choose blackberry for me is quality.
no front camera doesn't mean anything when u can easily send picture
Future: Blackberry? Whats that?

BBFAN!, 09 Aug 2011i'm the biggest blackberry fan out there but i do agree that blackberry is barely catching up ... moreHow many phones released in 2009 had the specs that this phone has? How many phones have dual-core battery raping processors? Why do they have to catch up to other (very very few) phones out there?
why on blackberry no video call and also I think radio is still not complete if the two applications did not exist.
ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, 08 Aug 2011blackberry are miles ahead of apple but they do let down us blackberry fans 1) why not a 8M... morei don't think there is any bb's application that needs those high specs.. i must admit, that the old blackberry's phone had a terrible specs, that even the latest phone from blackberry are always lagging and choking, even when it just using twitter.. but i think this is already a big upgrade for blackberry, because their phone is mainly used for online social interaction rather than playing HD games.. you ccan't force every company to play angry bird with their phones..
TFT capacitive touchscreen when others are upto super amoled plus screen, 1.2 Gig processor when others are upto 1.2 Gig dual core, NO 1Gb+ RAM, Low battery size.. Im disappointed with these specs but still wait for further releases before dumping my BB which I've been using since time immemorial..
i'm the biggest blackberry fan out there but i do agree that blackberry is barely catching up to 2009 most of these so called new futures have been around for 2-3 years i don't know whats happening but who ever makes these big decisions for blackberry about what goes on should get fired! i mean its not the blackberry cant do it they can but idk why they are not! but cant wait till this comes out to give it a fair and good review also the only 2 good actual smart phones out are apples iPhone and rims blackberry's android is just so cheap looking and the only reason its on top right now is because all the phones run the software and what more can people do but buy them. if every other phone ran its own then i bet you droid would be dead last!
