    Blackberry Torch 9800 Any thoughts?

    Think I may go finally for the Blackberry Torch 9800, got a 1000 mins, plus texts and unlimited data for £35 / month and £50 cash.

    Has anyone got one? My other choice was the Nokia E5 obviously cheaper though.

    im defo getting one. went into phones4u and i played with one and i loved it. its the bb experience with a touch screen and a decent browser! os6 looks nice too! im just waiting til o2 release it on their site so i can compare prices cs the contracts they quoted me on the phone were ridiculous!

    360 x 480 pixel screen, 600mhz processor and very expensive, personally I don't see the appeal, but then again I'm an Android fanboy and have only ever played with my Dads Bold 9000, so maybe I'm just no the kind of user base they are going for.

    Lots of complaints about the keyboard being too small. They had to reduce the size of it to slide under the screen.

    It has a touch keyboard too, so may ease the pain of trying to use small buttons...

    The keyboard is only slightly smaller than that of the Bold. I've heard that most people who get it hardly use the keyboard and instead use the touch screen as I'm led to believe its fairly good.

    I'm due for an upgrade very shortly, but if I don't get anything decent I'll be switching to Orange for the £22.50 a month contract (Phone is £200 but you get £80 Quidco for it). It only has 300 mins, unltd texts and 500mb internet but i dont even use that amount currently.

    Good device but has it's flaws, prefer the 9700! Patiently waiting for OS6! Can't wait for the next gen devices once PlayBook has launched and new OS on new devices next year!
