Just a few quick questions about the 9810
I originally had a thread in the 'General Discussion' part of the form but need to get some answsers from people who already have the Torch 9810.
You can view my previous post here: http://forums.crackberry.com/general...9810-a-728946/
Anyway, I'd appreciate it if someone could give me answers to the following questions:
I have read reports that the slider mechanism can become 'loose' and have a fair amount of 'play' over a short period of time and as a result the on-screen keyboard can become a pain to use, Have any of you experienced the same thing??
Also, I spoke to a tech guy who owns the 9810 and he said that if he uses his phone more the battery actually lasts longer than when it's idle (I'm guessing this is software related). As before, have those of you who have the 9810 experienced the same thing?
And the last thing, how long will the battery last for on the 9810 on a single charge with the new OS 7.1 and battery saver mode always on??

9900 or 9810?
I must first disclose that I do not have the 9900.. I do, however have the 9810.
Through my Company, I was issued a Blackberry 9860. This BB was very impressive. I was enjoying the OS 7.0..However , the lack of a Keyboard always seemed to grate on me. I would revert to my 9810 on weekends when I did not have to use the 9860. Since your question was on the 9900 vs the 9810, I will direct this blog to that. Please understand that the 9900 is a very impressive smart phone. I would think that the comparison of the two would yield the 9900 as the more impressive handheld! However, I want to say that my 9810 does all that I need it to do (Business and Personal.) The battery has by far outlasted the 9900 (and the 9860) . The keyboard is phenomenal, although, as I read the reviews on the 9900, I am told it has the best keyboard of any Blackberry.
I feel that is quite subjective: My BB9810 feels great in my hand, and even greater as I type out my Emails or texts, or web addresses.. When I first got the Torch, I told everyone I needed to work with it, however, I was "in like" with it/ Now after interacting with this wonderful machine, I am starting to see why, in my opinion, it is one of the best BlackBerrys in the Marketplace. The final decision is up to you. Good luck..My decision has already been made !The Writer~

I have the 9810, and my step-dad has the 9900. From the limited exposure I've had to his phone, the best I can personally tell you is that:
1.) The camera on my 9810 outshines his 9900 (they're identical, except mine has continuous auto-focus);
2.) The 9900 seems to have a better keyboard, mostly because it feels more comfortable in the hand. The 9810 keyboard is awesome too, but I mostly use the on-screen one;
3.) My 9810 has a bigger screen, which is nice for reading with the Kindle app, viewing webpages, etc.

I had a 9800 and now a 9810.. Have never had a problem with the slider.. I don't use the on-sceen keyboard.. My boyfriend has the 9900... I love typing on his... Had I played with the 9900 before I got the 9810... I would have gone 9900.. As far as camera.. Although the 9810 has autofocus... His 9900 takes amazing pics... Even really really upclose ones...if at first you don't succeed, don't try sky diving!

The slider can become a problem if you use a badly made case. The thin picture frame that goes around the screen hangs on to the back of the screen with several little tabs. If these tabs are too thick, they will interfere with the sliding, and eventually loosen the mechanism. I filed down the tabs on my Incipio case until they were paper thin, and I had no problems.
