I am planning to buy a new BB (this will be my first one).
As far as internet services are concerned my main priority is instant msging and NOT web browsing.
Attributes that matter to me the most are-
1. Awesome keyboard (which is much better in the Bold series)
2. Long battery life (since i am a chat freak i need it to keep itself alive atleast for 1 day)
As of now, the newest phones in the Bold series which operate on OS7.1 (9900, 9790) are touch n type phones but i dont want a touchscreen phone. Also they are beyond my budget (20K INR)
The phones boasting OS 7.1 in the Curve family are either low end phones (9220, 9320) or have a poor battery life (9360). And ofcourse the Curve family is best known for its clicky keyboard which i didnt like much.
So i came down to the best possible option i have i.e. BB Bold 9780 (as per my assessment)
I am also aware of the fact that i wont be able to upgrade my OS6 to OS 7 or higher (though there is a marginal difference between the two OSs). Is that an issue to be worried about?
Am i thinking along the right tangent? Pls advice.
Apart from that pls share your experience with BB 9780 as i am quite inclined towards buying it.
