iPhone 4 vs. Blackberry Torch 9800 and Bold 9700

When it comes to choosing a gift this Christmas those who have a larger budget will consider purchasing a new smartphone for that someone special – but what one? Having looked around, three of the most popular choices are the Apple iPhone and the BlackBerry Torch 9800 and Bold 9700 from RIM.

So how do you choose between the three? The best way to do this is by studying a comparison of each handset, this can be done by either reading a review or by watching a few videos on YouTube – we have gone for the latter. There is nothing better than seeing each device in action while pitted against each other.

The first one that we have for you below is a comparison between the iPhone 4 and the Blackberry Bold 9700, as this is the flagship competitor from RIM. The first thing you will learn is how long it takes to get used to the navigation control on the Bold.

The next video is an in-depth look at the fourth-generation iPhone and the BlackBerry Torch, which the reviewer describes as a smartphone smack-down. Both take part in a 10-round series, you will need to watch the video below to see who comes out on top.

We know that the iPhone 4 sales are still healthy, which is a different story for the Torch, and there is a fear that RIM could finally be losing its way. However, the Bold 9700 is still a great handset – so we should not write the Canadian company off just yet.

Which of the three would you rather?
