Hands-on with Blackberry's new Torch phones
Blackberry Bold 9900
You'll already know from our previous hands-on with the Blackberry Bold 9900 that it has a fine, premium build with lashings of brushed stainless steel, and is fronted by what might just be the best smartphone keyboard in the world. It's also Blackberry's thinnest ever phone, at just 10.5mm thick and its first to launch with NFC.
But as interesting as the design are the improvements brought by OS 7. Blackberry Messenger now interacts with the built-in social networking apps, and a new Augmented Reality feature. Hold the phone up in a room and it'll point out fellow BB Messengers or, if you're outside, points of interest supplied by Wikitude. Nothing we haven't seen before, of course, but proof that the Bold 9900 is far from just a high-end emailing workhorse.
