I am Blackberry phone user for past few years. I got my BlackBerry Torch 9860 just 4 months ago and having problems with it on regular basis. I gave it for repairs and got new one and it has exact the same problems ( freezing scream, unlock bottom doesn't respond for nearly min ).
Unfortunately very disappointed.
Trying to get a new phone and this time Iphone. :(

Worst phone ive even bought. The touch screen never works and if it does then it takes 5 mins for it to respond the lock button doesnt do anything. ive had four new black berrys in 3 months ! and they all do the same and you never get service!

I was a dedicated iPhone user, that is until my work made me use the new torch through their BES server and WOW I prefer it big time. My iPhone is now gathering dust, and that's something I never thought I would say out loud.
It's fast, it's intuitive, and it really works well, browsing is fast, and great battery life.
I guess its personal preference - but I know where mine is now!!

I cannot understand what Blackberry were thinking by removing the keyboard from the new Torch. This was a perfect opportunity for Blackberry to offer a large screen, high performance device with the two main Blackberry benefits - instant e-mail and physical keyboard. A spectacular home goal for Blackberry.

i do not get why people are so up at arms regarding their phones. each person has different needs for it, no one is better than the other.

Personally. I don't see the benefit of a bigger screen. I like petite phones. I am actually disappointed the 9860 is actually bigger than my 9780. I think material argument is more valid. And battery life better be outstanding. The apple app store is too fad like. Quantity do not = quality. I love RIM's in house apps. They are integrated into the system well. I love games on my iphone. But I might just look at a new ipod touch. I replaced the iphone with a blackberry as my communication/news tool. It had been perfect so far.

@scb - ya it does have nfc
@jackcash - take another read through. You are mixing up the models.

The Torch 9810 is the new torch with touch screen AND keyboard. The torch 9860 is touch only.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
