Besides the latest models that are due to be released or have been released very, very recently, the Bold 9700 and Torch 9800 are the front-runners. Before anything is deployed to users though, we typically provide them with the option of the heavier touch screen model (with a slideout keyboard) in the Torch 9800 or the more traditional model in the Bold 9700.

Actually, the models available for you to choose from may vary some depending upon which carrier you are going to use (or are using now).

Hi,

The newest are the Bold 9900 and Torch 9860 - depends what you want to do with it and the availability of BlackBerry services in your locale?

I believe there are only 2 operators in Tonga - Digicel and U-Call. Digicel offers the 8520 but I cannot see what U-Call can offer.

As you only have GSM networks operating at the 900 MHz frequency, then 3G BlackBerries might be overkill unless 3G is to arrive soon or your users roam to other countries where they could use 3G?

Regards,

Hi,

FYI - Bold 9900 is the latest and has both keyboard and touch-screen - also WiFi, 3G, GPS etc. Torch 9800 is a touchscreen only device with WiFi, 3G and GPRS. Bold 9780 has been around 1 year and effectively superceded by the 9900.

Torch and Bold devices tend to be geared more at Enterprise customers.

Curve devices tend to be more consumer/professional - 9300 is a newer, 3G version of the 8520 for example.

Regards,


RobMobility.

I personally like the Bold's better than the Torch and Curve.

The Bold 9780 is nice, it doesn't have a touch screen and its a little bit older, but it is tested and well liked by most business users.

I've had a Bold 9780 for about 9 months now which I upgraded from a 9700 (minor, I know!). Since then, I've deployed 9780's in our firm to around 50 users and they all say it's a very good choice. Previously they had 8900's so the 9780 was a familiar step for them, which I think made it a little easier.

I'll personally be upgrading to the Bold 9900 pretty soon, but for now, I think the 9780 is a very good choice for businesses.
