For years RIM has targeted the business market, and has been very successful in doing so. Ever since smartphone technology began trickling into the consumer market, we’ve been waiting for RIM’s response. Finally, the company’s ready to out its first elite consumer orientated offering, the BlackBerry Torch. We know from previous experience that the average consumer is hard to please, even more so during the aftermath of the iPhone 4, so will the Torch become BlackBerry’s leading light or will it simply burn itself out? Let’s take a closer look.


Appearance is everything, and doesn’t RIM know it. The Blackberry Torch has a very similar chassis to the rest of the BlackBerry line up, closer inspection will reveal it does in fact sport a brand new slider form factor, a company first might we add. Discreetly slotted behind that capacitive touchscreen is a full sliding QWERTY keyboard. So, the obvious difference is the physical and virtual action that’s on tap, but sit the Torch next to the Bold or Curve and it’s easy to see where RIM’s going with this. Despite packing a holding bay for its pull out pad, the Torch is remarkably thin, coming in at a mere 0.01inch thicker than the Bold. Stylistically, it’s not all that dissimilar to the Bold either, it’s got that metal-like surround (which is actually plastic, but it looks good so why grumble?). The front real estate is pretty much covered by the 3.2” capacitive touch display, leaving a little extra room for the familiar BlackBerry Call, Menu, Back and End buttons. It also packs the increasingly essential optical trackpad, perfect for speedy navigation. If, however your fingers start feeling a little cramped then simply slide the screen up to get on the qwerty action. The slide mechanism is near invisible and the keyboard layout is almost identical to, yep you’ve guessed it the Bold 9700, providing more than enough room to text freely and swiftly. There’s no doubt in our minds that the BlackBerry Torch is a very attractive package for both socialites and business types who want quick communication in a compact case.


The BlackBerry Torch marks a few firsts for RIM, we’ve already mentioned the form factor, next up is the operating system, jumping straight from Blackberry OS 5 to version 6. If this is your first BlackBerry encounter then chances are OS 6 won’t seem all that different to alternative offerings, but for the BlackBerry regulars this upgrade means big changes, finally RIM has dragged it’s proprietary OS’ sorry butt kicking and screaming into the premier league, making it a little more fun for those regular non-business folk to use. The overall experience is far more refined, RIM has dusted down the UI and done a spit and polish job across the whole OS. Icon imagery and text has been cleaned up, providing a seamless experience across all menus, it’s surprising what a quick touch up can do! The menus are far more inviting, marking the switch from commercial to consumer use. The homescreen is where a lot of improvements have been made, previous BlackBerry screens provided a static shot of your favourite apps and notifications. The Torch however, changes all this, in a slightly Androidian move there’s a handy pull up tray that slides from the bottom of the screen, allowing quick access to the most important apps and what not. Keeping quick access and interactivity firmly at the forefront of its campaign the Torch has a permanent notification bar at the top of the screen, housing a numbe
