  • Excerpt: The Blackberry Torch 9800 marks a new departure for RIM. On launch it was the first handset to include Blackberry 6 OS, optimised especially for touchscreens. It also sees RIM attempt to straddle two markets: core business users and the more mainstream smartphone market dominated by Android and...

  • Summary: Verdict: In its current form the Torch 9800 is a solid business device but its star appeal is handicapped by its deadweight consumer features.
  • Pros: BlackBerry OS6 offers a splashy interface, keyboard is decent to work on, reasonable battery life.
  • Cons: Dated screen, camera is quite basic, touchscreen keyboard isn’t very accurate, poor performance.

  • Conclusion: The BlackBerry Torch is undeniably the best BlackBerry yet. RIM has managed to keep it familiar, yet fresh, to paraphrase their CEO. That should be good enough to hold onto existing BlackBerry users (and there are a lot of you), but we doubt they'll steal many iPhone and Android customers.
  • Pros: Capactivite touch screen, great hardware QWERTY keyboard, OS 6.0.
  • Cons: In the specs war, the Torch isn't at the top.

  • Cons: Too slow for serious smartphone use, Keyboard is too small, App selection too practical, Not great for media, A bit on the bulky side

  • Summary: The Torch has both hardware keyboard and touchscreen, but it's the OS revamp that really catches the eye. Microsoft isn’t the only company revamping its smartphone operating system this month.

22 October 2010
  • Conclusion: There is a lot to like about the Torch. The OS is easier to use then previous versions, and the combination of touchscreen and keyboard works well. However, the media playback is too erratic, the camera is too average, it feels slow when browsing and the display resolution is simply inexcusable for...
  • Pros: Improved BlackBerry 6.0 OS, touchscreen and slide out keyboard combination works well.
  • Cons: Low resolution display spoils the experience, as does the sluggish processor. And the average camera.
