BlackBerry Torch 9800 review: Living the Olympic creed

24 September 2010
The BlackBerry Torch is not the first phone to give you both a full hardware QWERTY keyboard and an ample touchscreen in a smartphone setting. But itís a debut for BlackBerry and one that will probably shape the future for the next generation of RIM phones...

It was good while it lasted. Bragging rights are gone, it's weak compared to the most cheapest touch screen phone out there. The resolution is chump, the design is a tad crikey.
My Torch, while it still works - is obsolete. no support. no apps would touch it anymore. All certificates are expired. The ship has long set sail. Even the most basic apps like Google or Yahoo won't work on it anymore. So, I use as music player only. That's it.

how can you even compared an apple to a BB? I have an iPad and the only thing it's good for is browsing the web and playing music. you can't edit any documents on it at all.

All RIM needed to do was fit this one with a faster processor, it doesn't even have to be the fastest in the market & maybe better battery. my 9700 has 2.4in screen with 1500mAh, this one not only has bigger, but also touch screen, heavier OS to run, and RIM had audacity to keep the outdated 624mhz rubbish while cutting the battery capacity to 1300. Now, RIM has to live with the consequence of its greed, loosing more and more marketshare.
