A generally serviceable device, and the touch controls are relatively well implemented in the new BlackBerry OS 7 interface, but there's no stand-out features.
The BlackBerry Torch 9850 was designed for fans of touchscreen-oriented smartphones. It has a larger screen than any previous BlackBerry -- noticably larger than the one in the old Storm series.
It debuted running BlackBerry OS 7, which will be the last version of the operating system before RIM switchs to a version based on the QNX OS.
The Torch 9850 is available from both Verizon and Sprint.
