Hands-on with Blackberry's new Torch phones
Blackberry Torch 9810
Our main complaint about the original Blackberry Torch was its retro 480x360 screen. Luckily, its successor, the Torch 9810, goes some way to fixing that by boosting the 3.2in display's resolution to 640x480. As you can see below, that slide-out keyboard means the phone's still pretty bulky, but the keys offer a satisying thumb-typing experience.
A vastly more powerful processor (up from 624Mhz to 1.2Ghz) means the Torch 9810 carries off Blackberry OS 7's more satisfying features – web browsing, voice search and Blackberry Messenger 6 – without slowdown, and support for 720p video recording makes it more of a multimedia all-rounder.
