The BlackBerry Torch 9860


Just like Nokia, RIM are using an old mobile platform and is losing market share fast to Apple and Google. And just like Nokia, they’re currently developing a new OS for their phones, one that relies on a touchcentric interface. But until it’s ready, the BlackBerry OS7 will have to make do.


The company revealed its first BB OS7 device – the BlackBerry Torch 9860. It’s their first smartphone without a hardware keyboard and has a 3.7” 480×800 touchscreen instead. It’s powered by a Qualcomm MSM8655 processor clocked at 1.2 gHz and has 768MB of RAM – not the most powerful device, but not too slow either. It’s camera will be a 5MP one with autofocus and 720p HD video recording. The battery has a 1230 mAh capacity, so don’t expect a long battery life. B.A.
