What's most important to me in a phone is that it's good at making calls. A good (candy-bar style) keyboard for E-mail and SSH is a close 2nd, and battery life is an also important 3rd.


You sound like me; those things are also the most important to me on a phone. My solution was to stick with WP7 on the HTC Arrive. It has all of the above, in fact I SSH into my Arch box and Raspberry Pi with it all the time. The keyboard is a hinged slider, but for me that's actually better as I have large hands (I'm just under 2m tall, or 6'4" here in the States). It's also fast, very stable and stays out of my way.

All that said, the workflow-centric design on what little I've seen of the new BB interface rivals WP7, and may surpass it once it's all out in the open.
