I will not take a side in this comparison because I am a biased party. But you can make your own decision based on the information given above. The recent HTC phones, especially the EVO and the HTC Thunderbolt grab my attention, but I have always been a fan of BlackBerry phones so I would be torn between the two. Furthermore, the new Bold 9900 is probably the best BlackBerry to date in certain areas and I currently have a Curve. In essence, if I was to trade up to a new phone, I may still go with a BlackBerry.
The BlackBerry Bold 9650 is lighter and smaller and may last longer on standby than the HTC Evo due to its lighter weight apps. However, the HTC Evo offers a larger display, faster performance, better camera, more apps, more memory and is thinner. Some people may prefer the physical keyboard of the BlackBerry versus the sensitive touch screen of the HTC. Some may even prefer a lighter, although bulkier phone (BlackBerry) over one that is thinner but heavier (HTC Evo 4G). Choices may change when the 9900 arrives.
The BlackBerry Bold appeals to many business type individuals who look for function and battery life over looks while the HTC Evo is a visually stunning phone with a myriad of apps and uses. When it comes down to it, both phones are worthy competitors and will appeal to different needs and personalities.
