blackberry curve 9360: worth it? Battery life?

Hello guys,

I joined in to have an opinion from people who use blackberries.

My cousin sis is just into college and is a voracious text-er. She has a blackberry curve and has friends on BBM, and has decided to stick with the blackberry platform (I am an android user, and she buys no arguments to the contrary, although I will admit, I myself am in love with and jealous of that keyboard and the battery life her curve 8520 has).

She asked me about the new curve 9360. Mainly how is the battery life and does it hold up for 1-2 days. And some general feedback and views about about the new OS (7/7.1) would be appreciated. Is it worth it or should I advice her some other blackberry?

Thank you
