Great Business Phone!,
The Blackberry Torch is the best all-around business smartphone. It emails better than the iPhone 4 because of the traditional Blackberry qwerty keyboard and it files and sorts emails like Outlook. I can see all my email accounts on one screen and I can see my sent emails in the same screen. This was something the iPhone 4 required going to two separate screens to see. The HTC ARIA was even worse, had to go to each account and then switch from the inbox to sent folder. This was a pain since I have 4 email accounts.
Battery life on the Torch should get you through a full day, unless you are watching movies. For an average day, I talk for an hour or two, email 20 - 30 times, listen to an hour of music and search the web for about 30 mins. The HTC ARIA only lasted until 6pm.
Screen resolution is good but not as nice as the iPhone 4. The camera is pretty good and has custom settings.
One major flaw is the oversensitive screen lock button - can be a pain when using the phone horizontally - inadvertent screen lock sucks.
All in all, the Torch is a great phone.

I have this phone and like it. But I have two issues:
- I had it plugged into my laptop to recharge it. It was at about 50% power. I then picked it up and the entire screen was black. Totally dead ! what is that ? I thought the phone was cooked and got it back home and plugged it into the regular outlet and it was fine. What is that ? You plug it into your laptop and it dies ?
- How to remove the battery. After it died on me, I wanted to do a hard boot. I tried MULTIPLE times to force the battery cover off this phone, and it is like it is welded on (I challenge all but the very strongest of us to get that battery cover off with just human hands !). I got home and pulled out a knife and was able to remove the battery with a knife. Everything was then ok. But is that usable ?
What is going on, RIM ?
