    Likes and dislikes of the new Tour

    Haven't see a post yet but that's probably cuz those who just got the Tour are bz playing with it... :laugh2: This thread is to share your likes and dislikes of the phone... I loathe to call these pros and cons as these are entirely based on personal tastes... As usual Blue for likes and Red for dislikes.

    I haven't had it for more than a few hours yet but my initial reactions:

    -Beautiful screen!
    -Great keyboard - not mushy but not hard as a rock, just enough tactile feedback
    -Strong vibrate - strongest of the BB's I've used/tested anyway though this could have an adverse effect on battery life but I'm a very active person literally running from meeting to meeting and sometimes I don't feel the vibrations from my previous BB's though only time will tell if the Tour will change that.
    -LOTS-O-MEMORY - currently at 109MB with only a few apps installed!


    -Buttons other than the keyboard (including the actual trackball) are harder to press - not sure if that's cuz I haven't touched another BB other than the Storm for a while... I know it's not just the one I have cuz the demo at the VZW store was the same. You have to almost use brute strength to get the presses to register. Or I probably haven't had my Wheaties this morning... haha
    -Trackball recessed a wee bit too much for my taste. If the circle around the ball was big as the BB flip then it would've have been so bad.
    -USB port is on the right hand side of the phone in the middle - makes it hard for righties to use the phone effectively with just their right hand

    Wirelessly posted (storm 9530)

    Nice write up. I don't see any deal breaks there.

    JL how did you find the track ball?

    I played with a tour a while back but I've never owned a qwerty device so I had nothing to compare it too

    Okay, Def go to BB is was a very good and fast experience. I upgraded a third line and paid 149.99 but for my birthday I had 100 in BB Gift Cards and 40 in Reward Zone money.

    Plus I use it for my business so I am writing off the phone. That being said.

    I like the phone so far. Here are my thoughts.

    Memory: nothing on the phone = 115.3 like someone said.

    OS: Snappy compared to the Storm, but it does hang for me in messages when scrolling from message to messge.

    This is my first BB with a trackball and this is taking me a bit to learn.

    I've just noticed that the bottom part of the phone on the back gets extremely warm to the touch when charging... kinda weird since the battery is on top/middle of the phone.
