RIM Will Soon Start Courting Buyers

Much Like Palm,

Google will buy RIM for their patents and make their OS a paid app for the Android Platform.

RIM will not see the end of Q1 2013 (end of Q2 at the latest)

OK Seriously

This whole patent thing has gone way WAY out of porportion lately. It seems there needs to be a major gap in the patenting process that needs to be closed up to keep upstarts from hanging onto an idea drawn on a napkin in the hopes they can sue Apple or whoever when they come up with the same idea all on their own.

ATTs idea of HSPA+ is a shame

All these billions, and billions ATT takes in from data revenue and they can't even deploy real HSPA+, HSPA 21, HSPA 42. ATT really isnt any different then they were 3yrs ago. ATT's idea of HSPA+ is a shame.

Blackberry Torch 9800 Battery life

What is the best way to extend battery life? I have set screen brightness to lowest setting, shortened phone ring tones, set phone to turn off at night, etc.
I am not really sure what the best way to charge it is. Charge on or off? Let battery run out?
Any suggestions?

BlackBerry Torch

Not impress by the phone, I own BlackBerry Bold 9000 since it was release on Nov. 2008 awesome device and The damn phone is still running at 624Mhz, and BlackBerry Bold 9700 running at 624Mhz, and the new Torch is running at 624Mhz, I mean what is the deal? that fine when there no touch screen and when you add a touch at least damn make the processor 1 gigahertz. Come BlackBerry...I am returning your Torch today, I ain't signing up for the 2 year contract on a crappy device. Get with the program RIM you are behind in technologie and guess what you are 4th in the market and Android is kicking you in the rear. RIM is down folks mark my words, if you want to come back make sure you are running at least 1 gigahertz and make sure the damn thing ...

Jealous of the form factor

I love the overall form of the device. It seems to me a vertical slider is the way to go - all the screen real estate of keyboardless phone and the one-handed typing ability of a Blackberry or Treo. Out of the dozens of identical looking Android devices out there you'd think someone would have made an Android in this shape by now.

Cases Finally Here

Have been waiting a while for the pocket (slip) cases and horizontal belt cases with sleeper switches. I have loved these cases when I had the Bold and they are now available for the Torch. The pocket case is a bit tight but loosens up with use. They have the eaccess logo on them. They are not inexpensive ($29.99 each) but I think they are worth the price. I assume more will come out in time, but would have purchased these in anyway. They have held up well with my Bold (my wife continues to use my old slip case - she has my Bold now).

Productivity apps

I'm looking for the best torch "to do" lists and other helpful productivity apps

so far I like Phone Logger, yelp, and Edit Documents To Go.

Even wonder about grocery lists apps and whatever is truly helpful to organize, etc..

Any other suggestions for the business user or writer type with phone.

Email & Calls over Wi-Fi?

I have zero AT&T reception at my house. Any idea if Blackberry OS 6 supports BES email over Wi-Fi? What about inbound/outbound calls over Wi-Fi?

Browser problems

I have an unlocked torch and I'm using it on t-mobile... The email, bbm, instant messengers and everything not internet related works, but the browser does not, and no internet based applications. I'm thinking the service books weren't applied correctly, can someone help me on this??

To all the iOS4 and Android lovers out there...

...give this handset a break. It's modern, extremely well built & completely competitive with anything Google or Apple can offer.

Amazon drops price to $99.99, waives activation fee through 08/31/2010

So the question is...do I return mine to the at&t store and buy another through Amazon and save approx. 136.00??

Maybe at&t will drop the price Laughing
