Everyone let's just calm the freak down.
Dear Crackberry Trolls.
The phone is not a device made for games, That's too freaking bad okay?
I'm tired of all these people who don't know what they are talking about.
With a more powerful Processor and higher resolution display, we give up Battery life.
If you want a more powerful Processor go to the Android Central.
Or a High res Screen go to The iPhone Blog.
Have a nice day.

I hate gaming phone but boy do we need a higher resolution to see small text during browsing as sharp as they could be. Please, don't make excuses as if everything is dependent of battery drain. Its 2010 not 2007. If RIM had kept pace with technology, they would've learn to work with energy saving processors.

Looking at the MAJORITY of the smartphone crowd, we like to do more than look at emails all day, or suffer through whats looking like a still sub-par browser.
BGR hit it on the nose, this will not be swaying any iPhone or Android owners any time soon.I've sipped many different Kool-Aid's...

Things are so much simpler than some individuals make it. Get your facts down on what you want from a phone starting from camera to games, resolution, battery-life and so on you know it best. Narrow it down to what are the most important features that suit your personal needs. Review the Torch and see if it has it. If not, stop ranting about it and go to another brand or model.
You'll tell me that everyone's entitled to their opinion yet keep it on the mellow side. If you can make a better product then do so. Such colossal companies aren't that stupid to have created the phone this way.

Nice, but I think the Love Deathcommand sends a mixed message.No one can hear you scream in cyberspace.
Democracy: A form of government where the leader is chosen by popularity rather than the ability to run a country.
If voting changed anything, they'd make it illegal.

I agree...if you don't like it, don't buy it.
Having had four berries including the 9700, the 9800 is an upgrade, just that an upgrade...my expectations were an improved device over what I have now and not an iPhone or Android killer...
For those not satisfied with the 9800, it may be that your expectations were too high and not realistic given RIM's overly cautious innovation steps. I would personally like to see them push the envelope but have learned to deal with only the things that I can control.

I'm obviously in the minority, but I dig the 9800... yeah, I wish it had a high res screen, but that's not the end-all be-all... I rather like the looks of OS 6, and how efficient it seems to be with all the shortcuts and easy access menus/pull downs... option of either touch or physical keyboard...
And knowing that BBs by nature use less data, makes any data capped plan a non issue. People are blowing through their 2GB data plans on iPhone 4 like nothing... with a 9800, 2GB should be MORE than plenty, even for heavy usage.
I'm at the very least going to check one out in person once they hit the stores... Besides, it might actually be kinda nice if it's not open welcomed by the masses, since it means at least not every one and their grandmother will have one, like the iphone currently - kids, geezers, etc all have iphones now... rather waters down the ownership experience if you ask me. At least with my 9700, I don't see one on every street corner.sold: Bold 9700

I'm not a real fan of RIM's BIS/BES platform, especially the BIS side of things. iOS and Android OS give the capability to utilize ActiveSync. Having to use the enhanced gmail app to see all my emails is not a good way to integrate the account. But not having to be connected to mail servers (BIS does that) sure reduces data usage.
