Shopping Product Reviews

Techies or not, the Blackberry Torch 9810 is a smartphone that customers should consider. Research in Motion Ltd. recently announced that the handhelds along with two other Torch models will run on its Blackberry 7 OS software with some changes to provide an enhanced communications experience.

At first glance, users will think that the new phones have nothing new to offer compared to their predecessors. With the dimensions and sleek finish typically found on Blackberry phones, the design, save for color matching and the slight decrease in weight, remains unchanged throughout. So was it really worth the wait? There seems to be more to it than meets the eye, as it features a classic slide-out QWERTY keyboard that’s a bit wider, and a 3.2-inch touchscreen that makes it easy to access apps.

On the software side, the Blackberry Torch 9810 runs on a faster operating system (OS), resulting in smoother browsing. Preloaded apps include six AT&T apps, as well as Documents to Go in the premium version. The reason zooming, loading and scrolling is smoother is simply due to the device’s ability to support HTML5. The fact that users cannot run flash-based websites is a drawback of the new 9810 model.

The phone features a 1.2 GHz processor, so running and downloading games, apps, and social networking sites is easier to manage with this hardware upgrade. For users who like to take pictures as well as record videos, they will be happy to know that the 9810 comes with a 5 MP autofocus camera with flash that can store images in 8 GB memory. Also, capturing photos is easy with the 4X digital zoom capability of the Blackberry 9810. The memory card can also be sufficiently expanded to 32 GB.

Liquid graphics is powered by an Adreno 205 graphics processing unit and addresses the need for 3D graphics support. The phone is further optimized with the 768 RAM it offers. It’s no surprise that the 9810 is built to handle just about any app typical smartphone users can think of. Think Twitter, Facebook, and Evernote running on your phone.

Since users would like to maximize the use of their phone, the creators of the Torch 9810 considered a model with longer battery life. The talk time is up to 6.5 hours and if the phone is in standby mode it can last up to 12.8 days.

When it comes to connectivity, the model comes with Bluetooth, GPS, and WiFi. Users can easily browse the Web at their own pace in Wi-Fi-enabled places like cafes and restaurants.

So when asked if the excitement around the 9810 Torch model is just hype and marketing ploy, potential owners of the phone will be delighted to realize that it offers the best of smartphone technology. It’s not just the hardware that has been upgraded to meet growing public demand, but the software that runs on a performance-driven platform.
