The torch may feel more solid than an s2 but too many moving parts on a phone equals disaster.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that apple or google have been super innovative as of late either ... But innovation is usually what compels people to make the switch.

QNX is theirs of course, but has minimal visibility and brings little improvement to the table. But its hardly new , and far from a revamp of the OS that has been floundering for the last 3 years. As for BES, I agree this still is one of RIMs positives, however my opinion of RIM was specific to their attempts to become a leader in the consumer market, not their business/government segment. My point was to illustrate that they have not brought anything that I find compelling to make the switch. Apple hasn't either but until I see something worth making a switch, I'm content.

I definitely don't discourage people from trying the device. I have and I am thoroughly not impressed.

But this is all talk, time will tell and I do have the best hopes for RIM

I don't understand people's desire for a lighter thinner device. When I hold my wife's S2, I feel like it's going to snap in my hand. My torch on the other hand feels like a solid brick that can be run over with the car ... much prefer that feeling.
Then the Lumia 920 is your friend.To add to its durability, it also has camera that any of these phones mention in the thread couldn't touch.

Everybody I know who`s picked one up loves it.

Its larger then the Iphone yet smaller then most Android devices. Its good size in my honest opinion.

The OS is the best part about the phone. Its very quick. I`m sick of my company provided 9900 and want to upgrade(on my own dime).

What is pissing me off is that TELUS wont sell me one unless I renew my contract(Which I`m unauthorized to do since its a company phone). Even if I want to pay the $650 outright(Which I`m happy to do until the Q10 comes out) I`d prefer to buy legit through TELUS with warranty and all, rather then a sketchy unlocked device on kijiji. If anyone works at TELUS and can help me out please PM me!

Thanks

We ran an unscientific browser comparison at work using a Galaxy Nexus, Z10, and an iPhone 5. Consistent results in terms of browser speed were:
Nexus w/ Chrome > Z10 > IP5 > Nexus w/ default browser. BB10 has a great browser but the Nexus with Chrome usually beat it by a hair, the iPhone 5 was surprisingly slower than both, and the Nexus with the default browser was the slowest. The Z10 had the highest HTML 5 scores. For BB to have a better browser than iOS at this point is something they deserve a lot credit for.
