"ACTUAL REVIEW: Very solid-will keep many from defecting"4.0 starson by waxspeaks
Pros: * Best sliding mechanism (super-smooth) I have ever felt in a mobile device
* For enterprise customers, gives smartphone & touch-screen functionality w/ legendary (ask Saudi Arabia) BlackBerry security
* Very good physical keypad
* Great battery life
Cons: * BlackBerry App Store is still behind the momentum leaders (Apple & Android) (but time will tell...perhaps it will be more business-focused)
* Form factor still on the large side (but still smaller than an EVO 4G, for example)
Summary: REAL REVIEW- have actually used one
* Bottom line, I like the Torch a lot.
* Not super groundbreaking, but brings a refreshing touch to BlackBerry options.
- Believe this will be a big hit with enterprise customers as well as those who like the utility of the BlackBerry. (Security, battery life, enterprise-email-friendly plus enough of the new breed of smartphone functionality)
* BlackBerry 6 OS is a big step up
* Very solid feel typical of BlackBerry
* Best sliding mechanism (super-smooth) I have ever felt in a mobile device
* Responsive touchscreen
* Not as "cool" as Android or iPhone, but that's not typically part of a BlackBerry user's m.o.
