Good: Amazing keyboard, fast, crash free and lots more
Bad: none so far
Comment: I been using this phone for over a month and to my amazement it's just keep getting better and better. Push emails, reminder with google calender, facebook and twitter push alert, fun keypad, BBM and above all super super fast processor.
I have used iPhone, Palm Pre and HTC and one this I hated about all these phones was that how fast they drain batteries. With Bold 9900 I am abusing it all day and even then it and left with half the battery life. Amazing... If anyone tell you the App store is small, it's a lie. It's not as large as android or iPhone but it got every thing that you need.
Shame RIM is not advertising all the amazing features and the fact that how fully customizable this phone is.
I am a first time BlackBerry user and I am sure not going back to any other. They do say after all, "Once you go black(berry) there is no going back".
Comment: Looks like the best blackberry ever, can't wait to get it.

Bad: Lack of Apps - and yes very pricey
Comment: Happy so far with the handset.
Good: Best Blackberry yet, improved in pretty much every area.
Bad: Apps are way behind other smart phones
Comment: I've had a Blackberry Bold 9000 since its release and it was (definitely) starting to show its age. I considered the usual suspects but really nothing comes close to a Blackberry when you simply need a great communicator. The iPhone and Android options just don't function as well or as fast for calls or text entry, certainly in my hands anyway.
This phone is exceptional for business use and I cannot rate it highly enough. Having been quite satisfied with a Bold 9000 for so long there were few improvements I was looking for, but I can safely say after just a few hours use it's better in almost every regard, especially the browser which was one area that needed work. The interface is stunningly fast, much cleaner and generally much more fun to use and the screen and keyboard are excellent.
Four stars. It does exactly what you expect it to do and it does it better than any other handset I've used. I've docked it a star because BB could have cleaned up the menu system for settings and such, it's still a bit long winded.
Two important notes governing my purchasing decision. Firstly I did not pay for the phone, if it was out of my pocket I would have undoubtably gone for an iPhone. To hell with great call quality, fast text input and brilliant email, I would want the complete package and the iPhone is surely that. Secondly, I own an iPad and this satisfies my App lust completely.
Good: design,big backlight keyboard, comes with a holster, touchscreen
Bad: doesn't have af camera
Comment: I need it!
