Summary: I love this phone for all its features and what it represents. Blackberrys are work horses. At the end of the day, it and its' competitors are vying to be your phone so what's best for me isn't necessarily best for you. The way I see it, a cell phone makes calls, allows you to communicate with others via text messages, instant messages or email. In this light, this Blackberry is the best on the market right now. The keyboard and touchscreen combo makes the 9930 Bold the most efficient communications - yes, better than the iPhone and the plethora of Android devices. It may not be as fun, it may not be as aesthetically attractive, it may not have the biggest screen or the biggest library of apps available - so what if its' not a toy - it's a darn good phone. Top notch built quality and sound quality. They addressed almost all of the complaints about Blackberrys past. Web browsing isn't something I shy away from anymore but rather enjoy and know I can count on. The touchscreen makes a huge difference in terms of how I interact with the phone.
To those of you convinced you're leaving Blackberry for an iPhone or an Android device, please give this one a look. It'd be a shame if you ignored this phone simply because of your current Blackberrys' woes and because you want a shiny new toy instead of a shiny new communications device.
