It's time for me to renew my pda contract and get a new Blackberry.  I'm considering the the new Blackberry Bold 9650 (aka Tour v2) on Verizon.  I want Verizon over AT&T due to coverage issues.  I've been reading some of the Blackberry forums and see a number of people complaining about poor battery life on the 9650.  Anyone have one or know someone who does and can comment?

Scratch that. Bloomberg news is reporting that Verizon will have the Iphone in January 2011. I can wait 6 months.

Just to throw this out there for you I have the 9650 and the battery issues are warranted. It lasts half as long as my storm did. Great phone but the battery life sucks  Roll Eyes

I would love to but my firm's IT department won't approve any Droid devices due to security concerns.  Blackberry, Iphone and Windows Mobile are approved, although everyone with a Windows Mobile pda complains bitterly about it.

Kind of confused how the iPhone is somehow more secure than an android phone?

The only possible 'security concern' I can possibly think of is something that has to with Exchange and mail servers. But even then, I thought that was all solved.

Because Android does not fully implement Activesync properly.  Things like Remote Wipe are broken.
