I found the above youtube review, and she's focusing more on the apps. In her channel she has another video regarding the touch, but it wasn't what I was interested in, which was just to see how the apps worked.
I ultimately decided on the blackberry and ordered it on Saturday. I am awaiting confirmation of shipment, because my current time with metropcs runs out Monday of next week. Am hoping I can port my number while the account is still active, as I read that ports go through much smoother that way.
