    Well most people hate blackberry phones nowadays.Last night my dad bought a Blackberry Torch, I was messing around with it and was suprised.It had a pretty wide selection of apps, nothing compared to my iPod but still decent to keep somebody busy.The GUI was pretty fast.It has both a physical keyboard and touch screen plus a tracker ball.Compared to the Android OS and iOS I know its nothing but does it deserve the hate?
    Comparing it to an iPhone 4 it was getting better 3g signal and browsing was slightly faster but i compared it to safari so maybe opera mini is faster on iOS.It even has bunch of popular apps for Twitter, facebook, msn, ping chat and some time wasting games like doodle jump.Pretty good for a "bad" phone eh?

    It's not bad. No one said it was.
    The people who say they 'hate' blackberry really just mean that Blackberry is a nice option while the iPhone is a priority.

    The torch was the first blackberry I actually liked. I don't really like the other ones, but to hate them, that's a bit far fetched. I just prefer my HTC with it's touch screen, while others prefer a tracking ball. I'm not skilled enough to handle one, so no blackberry for me.

    This. Definatly this. I recommend the blackberry to people, mostly women. But in the end, I still think the iPhone is better.

    I think the phones are very good. But a lot of people "follow the crowd" and only buy them because of the BBM feature.

    I have a blackberry though. Apart from BBM it's just a normal phone that is way less powerful than an iPhone or a good Android phone. I'm going to switch this year.

    I don't hate the BB. It's just like what TheTwoR's said. It's a priority. Everyone's getting it so you'd feel weird to buy something else other than an iPhone and not be in the 'crowd'.

    Blackberry is ok in my opinion. However I'm more of a fanatic for Android OS instead. I've got a Google G1 and an HTC HD2 running latest android os.
