I'm joking...but seriously...most of the people bashing the 9800 here are either current or former Blackberry users who are frustrated with RIMMs stagnation. That's pretty much the bottom line.

People are like, The resolution makes my poor eyes burn from their sockets. The letters look horrible.
When people had iPhones 3Gs they were all.
OMG SUCH AN AMAZING SCREEN!! LOOK YOU CAN TOUCH IT.
Tech sites are all, "If you are used to a High-Res screen it will not be good for the eyes."
If you are USED to seeing a higher resolution, THEN YOU AREN'T AT A POINT WERE YOU SHOULD BE UPGRADING.
I mean. When I hand my iPod to a friend who has an Incredible, he automatically says, "Holy Sh-t. I can't read this screen!!". You know. Like a regular person would with the BB Torch.
That was sarcasm..
Thank you and have a nice day.

Plus, the iPhone variants had a 3.5 inch screen. The extra real estate really helped it out while RIM kept a 3.2 inch screen which from my experience with the 9800 is kind of painful to use.

I like what someone said... BB's are the new Sidekick, and are becoming the low-income ghetto device.NOT posted from an iPhone

Look, I'm not a fan of Apple. I currently have an Android device, and moved to it after owning a Tour and got fed up with cleaning my trackball twice a day after having three replacement devices.
The fact is that the 9800 was designed to be a consumer phone. And if you're looking into the consumer world, it HAS to compete with the likes of iPhone and Android, and it's obvious that it can't. We're not even talking about gaming here - just the overall power of the phone. In the era of when a 1ghz processor in a smartphone is almost standard, the weak processor in the Torch stands out. It would be different if the phone was able to fly with the processor on-board, but it's obvious from the review videos that it doesn't. Especially in the new browser, which looks horridly slow compared to everything else on the market.
As a consumer, why should you go with the Torch over an iPhone 4 or a Droid? Other than BBM, I don't really see a reason.Slink

Face it, Blackberry is a decade behind IPhone and Google based handsets. After owning my HTC Evo for a month now there is no way I would ever go back to a Blackberry handset unless I had to. I don't care what Blackberry calls the handset or if they modernize the OS its still an antique compared to the Google phones out today. Google pushes e mail from all servers just as fast as Blackberry so I don't buy that excuse anymore. I would never go back to Blackberry in its current form.

You do not have to see a reason!
Oh did I mention the specs! No, because I don’t give a crap as long as it WORKS!
