The Blackberry Torch 9800 is a slider phone with an unusual big touchscreen on it compared to other Blackberry phones. This is also the first phone from Blackberry which features the BlackBerry 6 OS. It has many features that will give you the comfort of a desktop PC especially when you are browsing the internet or multitasking. The stock browser features tabbed browsing also which makes it unnecessary to download another browser to browse faster. The BlackBerry Torch 9800 also comes with some handy preloaded apps including Slacker Radio, ESPN, and Bloomberg etc. and of course the social networking apps like Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and other networks. This smartphone has built in Wireless-N Wi-Fi feature which will enable you to use any of the 20,000 AT&T Wi-Fi hotspots without any cost if you have the eligible smartphone plan. Unlike the most low quality cameras of BlackBerry handsets the BlackBerry Torch features a 5-megapixel camera with both autofocus and image stabilization. With the network advantage of AT&T you can send your emails, browse the internet and talk at the same time without interrupting or stopping the other. The internal storage is 4GB and you will be provided with another 4GB microSD card in the box. You can sync your music to GB microSD card in the box. You can sync your music to your BlackBerry Torch 9800 with both iTunes or Windows Media Player. The powerful 624MHz processor runs the new BlackBerry 6 OS smoothly and let you multitask freely. It has GPS navigation capabilities with the AT&T Navigator service which features real time traffic updates. You can use your own music stereo headphone with the 3.5mm stereo jack or also via the Bluetooth to connect your wireless headset.

Blackberry Torch 9800 Review:
A regular BlackBerry user will find it very different from the other BlackBerry phones. Especially the capacitive touchscreen is really something new BlackBerry is trying. The browser was also always the weakest point of every BlackBerry phone which they have shown false in the Blackberry Torch 9800. Though they are not as good or smooth as the browsers of iOS or Android phones but the tabbed browser is sure something where BlackBerry has improved. The camera is good too and the flash is very powerful compared to most of the flash of the phone cameras. The slide out physical keyboard is really narrow and sometimes it will slow you down as it is hard to press a separate key in the narrow keyboard. When the most of the phones of today are getting on the high speed processors of 1GHz BlackBerry have just took it to a low range 624GHz level which is not so impressing at all.
