    Since the size is very similar on these two portrait sliders I thought I'd compare them.

    Pre3 - 111h x 64w x 16 mm (156g)
    BB Torch - 111h x 62w x 14.6 mm (161g)


    Also, I love how light my PrePlus is. Here are some comparisons to other models:

    PrePlus - 138g

    Pre2 - 145g

    iPhone 4 - 137g

    Nokia N8 - 135g

    Droid 2 - 173g

    That's interesting. To me, the Torch feels a bit on the heavy side.

    One thing I think the Torch might have going for it compared to the Pre3 is that the sliding screen part looks like it is thinner than on the Pre, so it's not too top heavy with the device open.

    The slider mechanism on the BB is pretty robust as far as I can tell so there's nothing about that form factor that meakes oreo'ing inevitable. Hope the Pre3 has a tough slider as well!

    The pre3 is a smudge wider than the torch? good great! I have been trying to get an idea of the size change on the pre3.

    All I wanted was a bigger screen and keyboard- same form factor with a vert slider (I hate horizontal) and thats what I got! I will pre order the pre3, let us hope it is on sprint.

    My wife has a Evo 4g and never uses the 4g because it trains the battery too much- and it "acts" faster in 3g mode because it processes the data faster- the pre3 should also do the same-

    Even on mobile hot spot with my current pre- nothing I do really seems "slow" in speeds - so althought no 4g is sad, its not a deal breaker.

    come pre3 I embrace you!

    the 4g drains the battery too much

    Mobile Hotspot for free on VZW is another reason I stay with my Pre+
