    Sorry that the US is not the centre of our universe.

    I don't have stats but I'm sure number of BB users in India will surpass the US before long.
    It's not just India, but Europe too. Since they have been living in a Nokia-world, the closest thing they can relate to is BB. Even the older ones. They don't want iphones or androids, although Android is breaking in. Iphones are "unobtainium" due to being extremely expensive.

    Not true! BlackBerries are extremely expensive in Europe (Maybe not UK, NL)! All other platforms are more promoted! I'll give you some examples:

    Here in Austria last month they had a promo, where you could get a free iPhone4 for 17€/Month (3years). You couldn't even get a Bold 8520 for that price! For a BlackBerry you have to pay around 10€/Month more than for other smartphones (Austria, Germany)

    A little less than the 9900 I guess, seeing that they are placing the 9900 as their flagship model.
    By the way as a former Torch user, I would strongly recommend the 9900. The phone is just perfect. The Torch feels cumbersome in comparison.

    sorry for the late post. got mine yesterday at 5 PM IST.
    cost = 32,490 [rs 45 = $1]

    fantastic feel in the hand. screen is cool.
    smooth thus far on usual things - BES and BIS setup.
    forgot the device switch and hence struggling with BBM.

    OS : 7.0.0.261

    have been on a call for 2 Hrs connected to bluetooth and battery drained approx 14%.

    as with OS 7[BES] all the past emails on the server is in unlike earlier when only the mails after activation comes in. nice move.

    these are initial impressions since i just opened the box.

    ^^ WHo writes "Former CEO" in any screen name? You really must be suffering from tiny p****s syndrome.

    Thanx Sam. As you were using 9800 before... how you feel the screen size difference between the two ?? I really like the 3.2" on 98xx series but I'm not comfortable with the sliders ( I’ve used Nokia 6265 before and it was horrible after 6-8 months ) and needless to say I do love physical keyboards. Since I use my phone for mails, viewing excel / PDF files a lot, I was really tempted with Torch’s 3.2” large screen but when 9900 announced I decided to wait.

    Please share your views on 2.8" against 3.2"

    Thanks

    Well there is an obvious loss of screen real estate. However the screen is very high resolution so that compensates to an extent. PDF's are easy to zoom into can clear enough to read.
    For me the plus of having the keyboard right there without having to mess with a slider.
    The phone is also a lot lighter and thinner so its easy to carry in pockets.
    But yes the compromise about screen size is always going to be there.
    It will really boil down to personal choice.
    But the OS7 is really good and fast.

    Thanks bro. I'm confused for that reason only. Big screen is going to be lot of help for everything but I need to compromise a legendary keyboard which is also very important for me.

    I will compare both devices before taking a decision.

    Thanks
