BlackBerry Torch 9800

  |   by Brighthand Staff

The Torch 9800 breaks new ground in a couple of ways: it’s the first BlackBerry to offer both a touchscreen and a sliding keyboard. Other features include 3G, Wi-Fi, a GPS reciever, and a 5 megapixel camera. The Torch is the first with BlackBerry OS 6.0, a new version of RIM’s operating system includes really significant changes, such as a greatly improved web browser. It is available from AT&T.

  • Pros

    • Updated operating system and web browser
    • Unique and useful form factor
    • Speed and reliability live up to the BlackBerry standard
  • Cons

    • Screen size and resolution need improvement
    • Tried and boring styling
    • UI could be smoother in some instances.

Quick Take

The BlackBerry Torch 9800 is probably the best BlackBerry yet -- more capable, more versatile, and more productive.
