Pros and Cons of the Blackberry Torch 9810

I am looking for some assistance from current Black Berry users in deciding which phone I should get when I come up for Renewal in October. My Choices are the Torch 9810 or the Bold 9900 but I am currently leaning towards the torch. I would like to know the pros and cons to this phone.

Re: Pros and Cons of the Blackberry Torch 9810

Without even trying the new Bold, I'm voting for the Torch.  If you've had a Torch until now, you're probably used to the larger screen.  The new Torch's screen is even larger than that.  The new Bold looks good but you'd be compromising screen size.  Unless, of course, you don't care about the screen size.  In that case, the Bold has some pretty nice features, too.  Smiley Happy

Re: Pros and Cons of the Blackberry Torch 9810

I suggest you review the 10min videos for 9810 and the one for 9900 at crackberry.com .

Bold has a glass screen, and is very thin. GSM version has an NCF antenna (won't be usable before the carriers settle with RIM on who gets the money & data when you use NFC).

9810 is a small enhancement from the 9800. Faster CPU, bigger definition for the screen (but plastic), a bit more app memory, and OS7.

9900 has no autofocus, but is all metal & glass.
9810 has autofocus, but is made of plastic. physical accessories should be compatible with 9800&9810.
