Software

The software is an RIM. Even though there are new UI elements in OS 6, there are some problems. There is a certain choppiness in the web browser.

Another problem is that the phone hangs navigating between screens. At times it feels that the phone has too many features. The result is that it feels too claustrophobic at times.

Keyboard

The keyboard is one of the best features of the phone. It is perfect. It resembles the Bold 9700 in this aspect.

Internals

The internals of the phone have proved to be disappointing. The quality of the features seems to have decreased. Reactions haven’t been that good.

From the 624 MHz CPU to only 512 MB of RAM, to the 1300 mAh battery, the BlackBerry worries us. It feels as if the hardware has been pushed to its maximum. Ironically the phone hasn’t even been released as yet.

Screen

The screen of the BlackBerry is no good either. The screen’s dimensions are 480 by 380. The screen is supposed to be the focal point of the device. However, it seems to outdated for 2010.

Conclusion

When one examines all the phones BlackBerry has created over the years, the feeling is one of disappointment. The phone shall excel at specific functions. This mainly includes e-mail and any sort of text-based messaging.

Recently. BlackBerry has been making a niche for itself in the electronics market. It has been competing with the iPhone and Android mobiles. So far it has been doing great. However, sadly, it seems that the Torch 9800 is nothing special.
