Default Which should I get?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm about to get a BB for the first time.
Should I wait until summer and get the Bold Touch, or get the Torch now?

I feel like I want a touch screen, but I quite like the 9780.

Thanks for you help!

Only you can answer that question. As soon as you buy one, something new is announced.

The question is subjective. Do your research before buying.

I am having this very same dilemma too.... I'm ready to buy one or the other, even though I know something new will come out 5 mini tea after I switch mine on.

Yes, it is a subjective question.... I'd love to hear some subjective answers.
If everything we dealt with was fact, there would be little point in having discussions forums.

So does anyone actually feel like stating their case for one or the other?

My opinion is you need to answer the question, Why do I need a BlackBerry? What need do I have that is not being met with what I have now?

If my needs are being met with what I have now but I'm ready for something new and that something is a BlackBerry, then I would try and stick it out until the new devices come out this summer (hopefully this summer).

If my needs are not being met now, and if I've researched a BlackBerry model and I'm sure it will meet my needs, then i would get that model now.

But I cannot stress the importance of market research enough. BlackBerrys are different. Make sure you know its strengths and its limitations.

I usually advocate just getting what you need right now, but in this case some very new and very exciting devices are due very soon. This is one of those rare cases where waiting a short time is probably worth it.

Ultimately you need to go to a retail store and demo the different models you are considering. Keyboard style and acceptable screen size are completely subjective and crucial aspects that only you can evaluate.
