BlackBerry Torch 9860 review: Keyless, not clueless

 

No QWERTY keyboard, no SurePress clickable screen gimmickry, the BlackBerry Torch 9860 is taking the plunge. Not the first time that RIM are venturing into touchscreen but they're past the point of no return with this one...

BlackBerry Torch 9860

 

The slender design of the Blackberry Torch 9860 makes it a great fit for anyone who wants a phone that is big enough to hold firmly in the hand but doesn't feel bulky. The full, sharp screen is also a great feature. However, the keypad tends to be a...

BlackBerry Torch 9860 Review

 

The BlackBerry Torch is has finally gone all touchscreen. It started out as an iconic qwerty slider phone and slowly evolved into a touchscreen smartphone. Check out our full review of the BlackBerry Torch 9860 after the jump.

BlackBerry Torch 9860 Review

 

The Torch 9860 simply showcases how far RIM has come from the days of the hateful SurePress on the Storm 2. A touchscreen that works, a sleek form factor and a decent power package - things seem to be headed in the right direction. At a box price of Rs...

Sleek form factor with classy build quality, Very good display, Touch response is quite sure, Power package ensures OS 7 is smooth

Keypad doesn�t really work in portrait mode, Web browser has some bugs

BlackBerry Torch 9860

 

The BlackBerry Torch 9860 features a large 3.7-inch touchscreen, a 1.2GHz CPU, and the new BlackBerry 7 OS. How does it match up in the midst of competitive handset and mobile OS activities? Let's find out.

BlackBerry Torch 9860 Review

 

The full touch BlackBerry makes a comeback.

Beautiful display, good battery life and zippy performance

Not the best looking device, plastic screen and lacks the biggest strength of a BlackBerry- the keyboard

The left side of the device has the micro USB connector while the top has a lock switch which is hard enough to not accidentally unlock the device. On the right side you have a 3.5mm audio jack, volume rockers with a mute switch in the middle and a...

BlackBerry Torch 9860 Review

 

BlackBerry may have had a bit of a set back lately with the whole “outage” issue but that hasn't really stopped them from pushing the sales of their new products. One of the latest devices to make it out of the Canadian manufacturer's domain is the...

With a price tag of Rs. 26,500 for a totally touchscreen BlackBerry that’s way better than anything the Storm series was able to offer, the Torch 9860 does seem like a good option. However, it does have chinks in its armour and one tends to expect a...
