Re: Does anybody have the touch screen Torch?
I have a 9860. My wife has a beautiful white 9900 (Bold, keyboard). Both of us are happy with our units. If you type a lot, you may want to consider a Bold (instead of *any* other phone, touch screen or with keyboard, of any manufacturer/brand, BlackBerry or otherwise). Typing on virtual keyboards takes some getting used to and is never as natural as using the real keyboard.
That said, 9860 offers a nice size screen for reading and the virtual keyboard is as good as any, on any phone. If you are thinking the "slider" Torch (9810/9830 I believe now, not sure), they are a good compromise - you get both, but the "real" keyboard is not as good as it is on 9900.
I recommend that you try it for some time, if you can.
