Blackberry Bold 9900/ Torch 9810
It was hard for me to choose the 3rd Device (LG G2x, Sensation 4G) but I decided to give Blackberries a little love. Both the Torch 9810 and Bold 9900 have 1.2ghz processors, 768mb RAM and 5MP Camera(Bold does not have auto-focus). The Bold 9900 has a 2.8″ touch screen and with probably the best keyboard ever. You have to try this keyboard, it is probably the best typing experience on a phone. The Torch has a bigger screen 3.2″ and a smaller but still a great keyboard. This is a slider phone just to let you know. Price is a bit steep for both (Bold- $299.99 after $50 MIR) (Torch- $249.99 after $50 MIR) You can probably find them cheaper in 3rd party retailers like Best Buy, Amazon, Ebay, Staples etc.
