@Gordon – While I doubt it will be as popular as the iPhone 4 or HTC Desire HD (and I was considering these), I have recently bought the Blackberry Torch and love it. I almost didn’t because of reviews like this, however they are somewhat shallow in that they tend to focus on the processor speed, etc., rather than the usability. I’m coming from an Android phone and while the openess and apps are great, it is just not polished enough yet as an OS. On the opposite side, having used an iPhone, it is too restrictive, and less of a phone, more of a pda, and the communications experience is just not that great.

It is true, if you are a gamer or want 1000s of apps then this is not the phone for you. However, if what you want is a communications device, then I don’t think you can beat a Blackberry, and the main reason not to go for one (i.e. the horrible browser experience) has just been resolved. All the communication apps such as Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, MySpace, etc. apps are all great and onboard or a download away.

In addition, I don’t think I could ask for a better form factor as having a slide out keyboard means that I don’t have to deal with a touch screen keyboard, yet it is small in the pocket. Now while I hear that many people are fine with a touch screen keyboard, I’m not one of them, and I have found myself writing more messages on my phone since I got the Torch than I did the whole year I had the Android phone. In addition, because the keyboard is not on the screen, it frees up the screen to display to show what the typing affects, and this is no more prominent than on the browser where you can use the standard Blackberry keyboard shortcuts to whiz around the browser and phone in general. In contract to a previous commenter, I think the portrait form factor for the keyboard is the best, as I don’t want to turn my phone sideways in order to type, and most of the websites I read are better in portrait than landscape.

All in all, very happy with the Blackberry Torch, I highly recommend one if you are a people person.

@Alexander While I understand your points, I think they are general and flawed. Your primary defence of the Torch is that BlackBerrys are the best communication handsets, which is more of less true, and the second is you only want to use it for limited things.

I would counter that you’re having to buy the most expensive BlackBerry ever made for a sliding keyboard/touchscreen combo you could find on many budget/midrange Android handsets. I’d also contend that BlackBerry OS is extremely limited currently, but the main thing is you are happy. The review doesn’t say everyone will hate the Torch – if you have very specific needs and a large budget – then it is perfectly fine. For the majority, however, they should give it a miss.
