Reviews for BlackBerry Torch 9800:

BlackBerry Torch 9800 has a 3.2 inch touch screen with 480 x 360 pixels resolution. Typical Blackberry track-pad is placed under this screen. There is a five mega pixel camera with auto focus, LED flash, 11 scene modes and VGA video recording. BlackBerry Torch ships with BlackBerry OS 6.0. Obviously, the new home screen, web browser, social feed, gallery application with Wi-Fi sync, universal search all get into the default features of the device.

BlackBerry Torch incorporates 512 MB of phone memory and 4GB inbuilt storage, which is expendable up-to 32GB using MicroSD card (4GB card included). Other features of BlackBerry Torch 9800 include, built in GPS with BlackBerry maps, 1300 mAhr removable battery, Bluetooth, Email and instant messaging, BlackBerry enterprise services, YouTube app, music player, 3.5 mm headphone jack and Wi-Fi.

BlackBerry has retained a physical keyboard, one which slides out from under the device’s screen. Other features of the Torch include; an optical trackpad for navigation, 5-megapixel camera, and 4 GB of onboard storage with an additional 4 GB media card and support for cards up to 32 GB included.

BlackBerry 6 OS is a refreshing update to the product line, featuring a new browser based on WebKit, much like those of the iPhone and Android browsers. In addition, the BlackBerry browser offers tabs, auto-wrapping text zoom, pinch-to-zoom features and drives the platform’s email application.

The design of the BlackBerry Torch seems great for the most part, but equally impressive should be the software that will be employed in the new Smartphone. First before most, we should mention the brand new web browser that will support tabs and pinch-to-zoom. In addition, it will shrink text automatically as you zoom in order to match your exact screen width. By the way, the company that RIM bought to develop the new WebKit browser was called Torch Mobile.

RIM’s acclaimed messaging/email prowess will of course be present, along with much improved social networking and multimedia capabilities, which will all be part of the new BlackBerry 6 operating system that will be powering the Torch. BB OS 6 will actually let you view all your social feeds in one page for a more organized view, and the same goes for your RSS feeds. Otherwise, the interface as a whole seems to have undergone some significant changes, most notably in terms of navigation, but it’s still quite reminiscent of what BlackBerry OS used to be.

Price of BlackBerry Torch 9800:

On August 12, 2010, the BlackBerry Torch 9800 will be available for $199.99 with a two-year contract with AT&T.
