Phone Arena
11 December 2012
  • Conclusion: This is the device that RIM should’ve put out three years ago when they embarked on the touchscreen form factor with the original Storm 9530 .

BlackBerry Torch 9850

2 September 2011
  • Conclusion: No doubt, the BlackBerry Torch 9850 is a lot of phone for $149 with contract. It has all the appeal of a BlackBerry minus the hardware keyboard, and we know that's a deal breaker for some of you (consider the BlackBerry Bold 9930 instead).
  • Pros: Beautiful design, good materials, large touchscreen.
  • Cons: BlackBerry OS 7 hasn't evolved much from aging OS 6. App World selection still slim.
