    Did you enjoy using the Torch? Because the 9810 is excellent! All the benefits of OS7 with, in my opinion, the best form factor RIM currently offers.

    Oops, sorry. Missed that part! 9810 is amazing, by the way!

    If you're looking to use BlackBerry Remote, then I would say the 9850/60 as well. Although, before I say that for sure, OP, what was your experience using the 9800's virtual keyboard?

    i never really used it at all. i loved the 9800 but im afraid that the slider will screw up again with my job i have to go on construction sites a lot too or else i would get it in a heart beat.

    besides that past month with the buttons not working i loved having the big screen and keybored

    Get the 9900. Rock solid. I dropped it on the road a couple of times and nothing happened to it.
    It's touch and it has an awesome keyboard.

    Yeah, either the 9900 or the 9790. The 9790, especially, looks like a really rugged device which can definitely take a fall or few. And although the virtual keyboards on OS7 devices have been vastly improved, I can't say that they're the best. I would go for a physical keyboard if you're pretty used to it already.

    Today I upgraded from the 9800 to the 9810. So far, it seems like the 9810 is much better.

    Much smoother operation and the screen is better.

    Some reviewers for the phone stated they don't like the back but I think it's great - nice texture.

    And almost all of the apps I like on the 9800 are available for the 9810.

    But the 9860 and 9900 are also excellent. I stayed with the Torch because I like the bigger screen and having the physical keyboard

    Also, Internet browsing on the playbook through bridge is quite a bit faster - I'm now on 3G+

    I would agree with this, especially if you prefer a physical keyboard and need something durable. The candybar BB's are as solid as they come.
