Default HTC Desire HD or Blackberry Bold 9780

Hi there guys.
I'm new so sorry if this question shouldn't be here, but I'd really like your opinion on whether I should get the Desire HD or Bold 9780.

I know they're completely different phones, and I've read countless reviews of both but I still can't decide which I like more.
I need an all round social networking package along with good communication and multimedia facilities, but I can't decide whether I need quality apps and multimedia more than the good communication.

I know that the HTC is by far the best on social networking and multimedia, but how does it compare on the app front to the Blackberry? also, do you think the Blackberry is worth getting for BBM and it's communication facilities alone, considering it's weaker social feed?

sorry for the long windedness, I just need somebody more knowledgable than me to help me make the decision, since this will be my first smartphone.

Thanks!

Uh, no BBM is a no no for me.

HTC Desire HD wins hands down. From the specs to the features. 90% I do my social networking from my phone and it never lets me down. Though I don't usually play music/movies on my phone since I have my TV but when I can, the DHD's big screen can make my experience fun. Though it isn't AMOLED, the picture quality is very good. Smooth transition when playing games and over all best in terms of multimedia. The thing that a little lacking is the speaker phone, but I usually use my headphones and I have no problems there.

Why would you ask this question on a HTC Desire HD forum??? Of course most of us will tell you to buy the HD since we all have one (and are loving it :-) ). But when looking for opinions you should look for more "neutral" reviews. There are plenty of sites where you can compare 2 phones to each-other!

This being an Android forum will stir some people to the Android's side

This is a helpful comparison about the specs on both phones.

Specs alone you can the difference...
