BlackBerry Torch 9800 review: Living the Olympic creed

BlackBerry Torch 9800 (AT&T)

 

The first BlackBerry 6 phone brings the smartphone platform into 2010.

Looks and feels good. Lots of new features. Integrates social-networking well.

Browser still slower than iPhone 4. Fewer games and apps than iOS or Android. Poor Microsoft Exchange integration for consumers.

Conclusions The BlackBerry Torch keeps the flame alive, but it's not a barn-burner. RIM needed the advancements here just to stay in the game against the flashy Apple and Android interfaces. BlackBerry 6 merges touch-screen and keyboard interfaces...

BlackBerry Torch 9800 review: BlackBerry Torch 9800

 

BlackBerry Torch 9800

The RIM BlackBerry Torch combines both a touch screen and full QWERTY keyboard. BlackBerry OS 6 brings such improvements as a better user interface, universal search, and an improved browser and multimedia experience.

The smartphone can be sluggish. The Torch has a lower-resolution screen. Applications can be saved only to the phone's main memory. Camera shoots only VGA video.

Though performance could be better and it could stand for some hardware upgrades, the RIM BlackBerry Torch 9800 and BlackBerry OS 6 offer much-needed improvements to stay in step with the competition, and keep BlackBerry enthusiasts happy.

I have an emotional response whenever I write an overview of a new BlackBerry. Part of the reason is because I have been a loyal BlackBerry user for several years, and partly because I have watched as RIM has gone from "Trailblazing" status to playing...
