We will talk about the Blackberry Torch 9800 Review, a complete new device for the Blackberry user. This time RIM decided to come out with something different from the previous blackberry models. This new model came up with an innovative idea of touchscreen with a QWERTY keypad. The RIM really introduced an innovative thing to change the game in the market and when users get their hand on the new Torch to play, they were understandably excited. A new Operating system from RIM, a new form factor which we can say a new look of our very own Torch, from the company was not because there was some interesting story but it was due to market competition where new devices and gadgets were being introduced like EVO 4G, iPhone 4 and Galaxy S.
The first thing that one notice in blackberry Torch 9800 is it have very similar looks like the old blackberry devices but the new Torch has slider and a bigger touchscreen. This handset is very much identical to its one of the older model Blackberry bold 9700. This has QWERTY keypad in it. Torch is 0.57-inches thick, while the Bold is 0.56-inches. The Torch carries a very tiny silver plastic edge of bezel around the handset.The face of the handset Torch’s has 3.2-inch capacitive touch screen with a resolution of 480 x 360, same as the Blackberry Storm and Strom 2, althoughyou will find the well-known BlackBerry call, menu, back, and end buttons and optical trackpad just below the display screen.
As the Torch has a sliding option, when open up you will find anold traditional QWERTY keypad below it. The sliding looks to be very solid and slippery butwhile using it some resistance was found while popping the slider. The keypad is depressed inwards but is the same in the looks and size as compare to old 9700.
If we talk about the design of the device it will not be wrong to day that the device has nothing lust worthy as compare to other only touchscreen mobiles like iPhone 4 or other smartphones which is not good for its game in the market. As mentioned above, the Torch supports a 480 x 360 capacitive display, which is adequate for the device but is already a generation behind then the competitor in terms of resolution and pixel density. Every smartphone that has been launched this year 2011 and 2012 supports a higher resolution display and pixels capacity.The images and text do not have much lucidity as was expected from the new smartphones. This handset is lacking behind a lot of features as compare to other Smartphones.The phone carry 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage, with a micro SD slot for additional storage up to 32GB (you get a 4GB card in the box) and a new operating system 6. RIM disappointed the users that it is still using the same Marvell CPU found in the 9700, clocked at 624MHz. the performance was slow in some areas. After Blackberry Torch 9800 Review we found that device is a generation behind the market.RIM took very small steps towards the innovations.
