BlackBerry Torch 9800
BlackBerry Torch 9800
Last time I renewed my mobile phone contract, I opted for an HTC Touch Pro running Windows Mobile but half way through, I purchased a 2nd hand BlackBerry Bold 9000 off eBay for testing some software my company had developed. I liked this so much, I decided to use it as my main phone!

Last month, I renewed my contract and opted for a BlackBerry but switched from the Bold to the new Torch 9800. After having a play with one in store, I liked the way it combined the traditional BlackBerry full keyboard and track pad with a touch screen in a slide form factor. While I did have a go with some of the newer Android handsets, all of them were full touch screens and I just don't think I could ever get used to that for typing longer emails / texts.
