    Thanks for your review and for your experience. I am sorry about that. Sadly I have just the feeling that the more we go ahead the more companies just think about profits. Thinking about profits means that the material used to produce gadgets are just great at first glance but after a while they look crap! This has happened to me with Nokia phones. Nokia has been a great company for years but not now anymore. Their phone look great when you buy them but after a few week the paint start peeling off the case and so on…

    Long excited wait. Got it first day delivered to home. Great I think. 3 hours later not too happy. No 8 gig memory card as first thought. Seems very clunky software sometimes slow to react. Thought to myself it give a chance so just kept playing with it to get used to it. Yep, I think. Getting used to this a bit. Battery life below expected though. Where did 5.5 hours talk time come from. I cant get a day before it needs chargings, still maybe just a faulty battery. But no theres more, disaster. The buttons at the bottom, Green, menu, back and red sit nearly flush with the screen but not quite, I think they are stuck on with sticky tabs. I put my phone back in the wallet but the green button catches and lifts up all the buttons. On looking I cannot believe how flimsy they are. 2 days they have lasted and now look like they will drop off. Come on Blackberry this isnt good enough for a business everyday phone. Poor battery flimsy keys what next will the sreen drop out????
