BlackBerry has revolutionized its range by launching a new format of
this slider smartphone complete with large touch screen with a full
QWERTY keyboard. Positioning Mail + Multimedia + Application + Surf
delight the largest number, starting with the Pros who will find this
model a way to improve their daily productivity.
Another innovation of this smartphone is that it incorporates the
newest BlackBerry OS 6 inspired by top designers. The result is clear:
great ergonomics, web browsing fluidity and speed of execution. The
I've had three BlackBerry devices in my time before using a torch: a
Pearl 8100, a Bold 9000 and its successor, the Bold 9700. Each device
has advantages of design and defects, but the crown achievement of the
Torch is the "fullness." Compared to the Bold 9700, which feels solid,
but light, the torch is a tank. Not that it is a weighing device, but it
is certainly well rounded.
My unit, like most BlackBerry devices I've used, has some serious
problems of quality construction. While the regulatory mechanism of the
screen is solid (in fact, is exceptional, and very successful) moves the
screen as a little pig when the keyboard is exposed and interacting
with the touchscreen is rotated slightly back and forth. But this is
probably not the rule but the exception. I only had about five
"exceptions" in my time as owner of a BlackBerry. Something's Gotta
The device layout will be familiar to anyone with a Bold 9700. The
rubber keys are the same as in 9700, the lock and mute at the top is
clicky, and the camera button is two steps perfectly.
The interesting dichotomy of the device comes in the interaction between
the fingers, the touch screen and trackpad. Most people upgrade to this
device will do it from a non-touchscreen BlackBerry. This means, for
the curve and Bold users, the trackpad will be a second nature, while
the fingers less. The first time you turn the device began to use it as
my Bold, but after a few seconds, you realize that the construction
included in the torch is not optimized for the trackpad. In fact, some
functions may work much better with your fingers. Shift work as it
should, but sometimes using the trackpad to get from input text box to
another does not work. You have to use fingers instead of moving up or
The world, in which this attempt BlackBerry exists, then, is untenable.
The device can be used like a touch screen not once, and most experience
with the new BlackBerry 6 will be the same as they would in the old
operating system. In fact, you can say that it relies heavily OS5 BB6
outside the code, since the BlackBerry button menus are identical. The
inclusions of long press on the screen to select options for background
is an added advantage, but offer nothing essential to the experience. I
prefer to use that annoying button to the left of the trackpad to do
most of the selections in my context.
