“The new BlackBerry Torch smartphone builds on the familiar and powerful capabilities of the BlackBerry platform to provide the features that are ideal for socially connected consumers while also providing the tools that business customers trust,” said Gregory Wade, Managing Director, Southeast Asia at RIM.
BlackBerry also features an optical trackpad and backlit slide-out BlackBerry keyboard. It offers support for high-speed 3G (UMTS/HSDPA) networks around the world, includes the latest generation in Wi-Fi® (b/g/n) connectivity and features built-in GPS for location-based applications and geo-tagging. The 5 MP camera takes pictures with continuous auto focus, image stabilization, scene modes and zoom, and it also supports video recording. Moreover, it comes with a combined 8 GB of media storage out-of-the-box and includes a microSD/SDHD memory card slot that can bring the total storage memory to 36 GB for customers who want more.
The new operating system BlackBerry 6 retains the features of the BlackBerry. It has a redesigned interface and includes expanded messaging capabilities for social networking, RSS feeds (Social Feeds), and integrated access to BBM™ (BlackBerry Messenger), Facebook, Twitte, MySpac and various messaging applications such as a dedicated YouTube app.
A true power-packed Smartphone, the BlackBerry Torch is something one would love to have as a gift either from someone or for yourself. :)
