    I'd accept a Bold/Curve Form Factor, Torch Form Factor, or even Style Form Factor. Prefer Torch though for the touch'n'type.

    My first BB was a Curve 8520 almost a year ago, and 6 months later I sold it and got a Storm 2. I miss having a portrait qwerty phone. The other day I played around with a friend's 9300 and I fell in love with it again. Now I don't know if I like SurePress more or a qwerty phone. Nevermind that the screen is smaller in the Bold form factor.

    Portrait+kb style. If I wanted to browse more or show off pictures, I'd be more inclined to buy an ipad than an iphone, storm, or torch. No phone screen is big enough for touch-and-type spreadsheets and the largest are only somewhat-less-sucky for reading, photos, and videos, so a "big" screen is almost a non-factor for me.

    I am always fascinated with Bold type but since Torch came out, I am interested with both of them. Just my 2 cents.

    According to the poll the bold style(candy bar)of device is ahead by a lot. So why don't we see more devices of this style? Why is touch screen the end all to beat all ? It's frickin' everywhere. I love my bold for it's form factor first and everything else comes after. If another type of os had this form factor I'd likely give it a go. At least until BB gets their collective sh!t together, gets off their a$$e$, dumps the horrendous webkit POS and gives us better specs.

    I have a job that is pretty tuff on phones. The 9700 with a Defender case proved to be tough enuff! Buuuuut, I couldn't stop thinking about the torch so I had to have one. I like it a lot but do have to b really careful.

    I have had a BB for 8years or more and I just cant bring myself to try anything else. Tried the iPhone a few times and always ended up craigslisting it and going back to my BB. I bought an HTC (what variation I cant remember) and ended up returning in after a week or so. Hard to touch a Bold 9700. I love it and probably wont end up giving it up until they bring an updated version to att.
