They are definitely nice devices, they work well, seem very fast, and having a touch screen/trackpad/keyboard is quite interesting/nice. So far so good! The main "issue" is the fact most apps don't work on these...OS7 seems unsupported as of yet. Weatherbug, AP Mobile news, BeamReader PDF Viewer, and even Pandora to name a few more common ones, not to even mention the less common apps!
My only bit of advice, make sure you update desktop manager, then update it AGAIN. I hooked up my wife's 9810 last night to swap devices and the whole works was crashed. Took a few minutes to get everything figured out and its working fine. I'm not even sure I'm going to do anything with mine except back it up...they swapped my contacts, and that was my main concern. Come to think about it, mine didn't need updated (at least it didn't ask me to update it).
Got my wife the new 9810 yesterday so it's too soon to tell how well it's going to work. Since it's her first bb I signed up for an ID and email but for the life of me it will not let me setup the email account on it. Keeps telling me I have the wrong id or password
I got mine today. Love it. Just a little sad that a few of my apps are not available for the device yet (my banking app being one of them ) Hope they fix that soon. But I love the device and I got the Titanium one it's very sharp
I had several issues with the original torch....freezing and battery issues after a few months and the battery just kept getting worse. I love the 9810 so far and I have the silver one which is very sleek. The OS 7 is very fast and the phone itself boots up faster than the 9800. Only complaint is the fact that some of my apps are not available for the 9810, main one being my banking app, but I was able to go to the website and save the mobile login to my bookmarks for easy sign ins. The transfer of contacts and emails along with all other pics and videos was fast and easy and I did it myself from my laptop.
I look forward to finding out what all has been improved on the 9810 and hopefully they will fix the apps that are not available pretty soon.
Any one have issues with their new 9810 not going into landscape mode properly? I calibrated the compass app and when I close the phone and rotate it, it does not change. It did a few times but not immediately like my 9800 did right away. Is there a setting in the new 7.0 OS I am missing or does the phone go back for a new one? Thanks in advance for your input
PS as of this morning, it is not going into landscape mode at all.
