"it's about time. great for biz and fun. well done rimm!"5.0 starson by bbdiehard
Pros: lge crystal clear screen. great size; small but doesnt feel cheap. very responsive and fast with new processor and added ram. exc. virtual keyboard which is better than iphone (imho). the panel menu options are an excellent idea. vzw network. exc web e
Cons: not 4g (a pro and con due to battery drain of 4g), dont have great variety of apps. no hotspot option.
Summary: just upgraded from storm2. what an amazing improvement. i have an iphone(att) and ipad (which i luv) as toys. but i could never get used to the iphone for everyday use. and I always have sync issues with iphone/ipad and outlook. bb/outlook sync is seamless. torch can make it thru the day with moderate use. however, i carry a spare battery for heavier use/roaming needs. at least i can replace the battery, apple!!Web experience is great with multiple-window option and is super fast. Still haven't needed the spare battery after 2 wks of use... And still lovin the torch.
i had considered trying a 4g bionic. however, the battery drain and lack of world coverage were deal breakers for me.
this gem is faster than my storm and my iphone (att). bb haters need to get a life.
I will have no problem waiting for the next gen bb (qnx). long live rimm!!
