The processor and screen on the torch arnt exactly what you would expect of a phone only just released. It depends if you are "need" a keyboard. If not then I would go for the iphone hands down.

Torch or iphone

I think it depends on what u use ur phone for and how u use it. I have a BB Torch and I can tell u its pretty much an internet phone because of its 'push' technology which makes email, facebook, twitter, myspace etc child's play. Also bc of its fantastic browser and a data package (BIS) that keeps u online and u browse free for as long as ur subscription runs. It also has the ability to communicate with every other blackberry phone in the world as long as u have the pin and ur request is accepted. Its multimedia experience (ie video, music and pictures) is also fantastic! with a 5megapixel camera. Frankly speaking, I have never used any phone that is so easy to operate and gives u so many options on every single task. Also, its battery strength is best ever! Also it gives u the option of both the touch screen keypad and the real keypad. In terms of funtionality, i think its more useful than the iPhone.

The iPhone 4 on the other hand does not have the the ability to communicate with other iPhones, it does not have real keypad along with the touch screen and it does not keep u connected to the internet. Its more designed to run applications. hence it has a bigger memory making it a little faster then the BB torch, it has a bigger screen size and it looks prettier. Its more of a bling than the BBtorch.

So, the choice is urs!
