New Bold and surprisingly, the Torch 9860 slate look tasty
Can't say I'm excited about the Torch 2, it looks like a very slightly updated version of the original which had far too tiny keys to be usable as a BB and was stupidly heavy for a slider.
If the 9860 can nail the user experience with a decent virtual keyboard (the Torch one was awful), I'd even be tempted to get a touchscreen only BB
As an aside, the one thing that I love about all BB's is the optical pad. More phones should have these for those of us who like to occasionally use touchsreen but prefer a virtual mouse.
Just a quick look on Play, and I can buy a Nexus S for £300 or a Torch 9800 for £422. I think they both came out about the same time.
The Nexus S is around 18 months old and has been superseded a dozen times. The Torch 9800 will be over two years old when replaced.
still happy with my torch 9800 - not sure about upgrading to a touch-screen only BB handset - the qwerty pad is what attracted me to start with. are there any reasons to upgrade to a new torch handset (other than OS7)?
I got the 9900 on Thursday, it's impressive and ticks all the boxes expected of a blackberry, the web browser is significantly improved as well, no complaints so far.
