To Blackberry fans who wanted the best of both worlds – all hail the Blackberry Torch 9810! You thought you had it all fancied up with its chrome-like finish and really fancy touchscreen LCD right? Well, check out the rest of its features (also the other Blackberry OS7 units in Cebu available also in the market).

What I love
Faster start up
Faster transition between apps
Faster internet! (yay!)
Best graphics, super sharp interface
What It Needs Work On
Apps sometimes lag
The back cover is extremely thin – I guess they need it to make up for the bulkiness of the entire unit
The speaker for music or calls is quite poor compared to the Blackberry Bold 9900
I tried this using the browser for internet and realizes it doesn’t have flash settings
Overall, the Blackberry Torch 9810 could be your kind of phone but I certainly cannot imagine carrying this around all the time. It is just too bulky. I love how I can still go back to regular texting mode (yes, I’m such a heavy texter!) with its Qwerty keypad but it just is not the same. Toggling between the touch screen and the keypad is confusing. Have any of you tried this unit yet? Do share your thoughts!
