True, i'll take bbTorch over any samsung any day of the week.
rather not say, 28 Sep 2010i was thinking about getting 1 of these phones im 12 and only really need the keypad for texti... moreThe processor is weak and therefore the phone is slow.
Biggest problem according to the reviews is that it is too quiet - poor loudspeaker.
The operating system is not very smooth.
The screen is well out of date - see Samsung's Amoleds.
For your use and Android phone would be better.
i was thinking about getting 1 of these phones im 12 and only really need the keypad for texting and the touch for facebook will someone please tell me clearly whats wrong with this phone ty would realy appreciate x
English actually has 28 must have characters - two additional are full stop and spacebar. Withoutthesetwothingswilllookcompletemessyouwouldnotknowwheresentencesbreak. Or maybe we go like this $ Blackberry $ come on $ make your keyboard straight $
think of example they removed 'a' key and replaced that with '@' with an explanation that these are email devices first - total crap
Why does blackberries have '$' symbol where there should have been '.' on the keyboard???
Main Disadvatages :
No email support or BlackBerry maps without BlackBerry Internet Service account
wtf is this? i tought that BB user will pay their BIS service.. what a stupid review
I prefer the torch over any compitition, and I ave experience with markedly sophesticated cell phones (I used to have a sony ericsson).

For example, the 8900 runs pretty weel and that is a pretty old phone. There is not really any lag or anything like that.
Its true that these are for business people, but oddly enough most of my friends who are between 18-25 have a Blackberry and are not even involved in business, lol.
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2010ill buy the torch over galaxy s... imhogot the galaxy myself. the berry looks nice but im mainly into the galaxy for media ant the 4'' displays beutiful
No reaosn to this GSMs review is anything other than a fair one. It is by all reckoning then a very, very medicore bit of kit. The price of the torch is way too high - fact. Put the two together and you have to ask why would anyone make an informed decision to buy one???
Lol i dont know why people are comparing this to nokia e6 or e7..those are the most backdated mobile to date..and with the symbian^3 os ..what?symbian ^3 lol its just a redesigned version of symbias s60 5th edition i donno why people are creating so much hype about the worst os in the world!!i mean what could be worse than symbian and nokia??tell me what was the last mobile that wasnt slow as a turtle and didnt have the worst ui??
RIM should not put restriction on the connection mechanism. Internet is almost everywhere, application service should not be tighten with the connection.
ill buy the torch over galaxy s... imho
smart boy, 25 Sep 2010BB OS is SLOOOW, I prefer Nokia E7 or Galaxy S.. torch is stup*d choice phoneHave you tried either of them, maybe i9000 but E7 it's not released yet... Fanboy!!!
BB OS is SLOOOW, I prefer Nokia E7 or Galaxy S.. torch is stup*d choice phone
who cares about the torch? i cant wait for the Nokia E6!! Symbian 3 plus a great qwerty keyboard, thats what i want!!
good phone, new design & nice new OS but it's too pricey!!! its deal breaker specially for BB phones the most unique about them is the BB service (Mails & Messenger) 8520 can do the job if the owner is not interested in the other specifications

And not just because they shouldn't stray away from their biz/enterprise inclinations.The prob with "suits" having issues with the term "multimedia" are SOLELY based on that still "cave man" thinking that anything multimedia are automatically A) for entertainment and B) for kids who tweets,attach pics on msgs and do video calls for sexy times.As long as there's still this perception they're gambling on being stubborn that multimedia are just a progression of how information are forwarded.The minute crackberry addicts start to realize the possibilities for say BB OS 7 then they'll start to demand better worth for their money spent.

Their focus was entirely for the corporate world. It's all fine and dandy that they're trying to improve on the media aspect but it wouldn't be wise to stray from their main strong hold. They should consider upgrading the hardware because it's severely lacking in that department.
