The first BlackBerry smartphone to feature the highly anticipated BlackBerry 6 OS, the BlackBerry Torch offers a unique design that features a hi-resolution touchscreen display, slide-down full QWERTY keyboard, and optical trackpad. Packed with business tools as well as socially connected apps, the Torch also provides a desktop-like browsing experience via its 3.2-inch touchscreen, which enables you to navigate quickly through full-page views, multitask with tabbed browsing, and see the details with Pinch to Zoom.
The intuitive new BlackBerry 6 OS includes a rich graphical interface and new touch menus for quick access to your next action or needed application. It includes a set of pre-loaded apps to get you started, including Facebook, BBM, MySpace, Twitter®, Windows Live™ Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, Google Talk, AIM, App World 2.0, and YouTube (Playback, Upload, Search).
In addition to its advanced messaging capabilities and access to business and productivity applications, the BlackBerry Torch also includes a 5-megapixel camera/camcorder, with flash, image stabilisation and auto-focus. Plus with 11 new photo modes – it’s easy to capture those spontaneous moments.
Power up for the first time and see a short intro video, then go straight to setting up and personalising
Talk business. Talk evening plans. Just talk. With 5.8 hours of talk time, you don't have to pick and choose. Feel like just listening instead? Enjoy up to 30 hours of music and 6 hours of video playback.
Messaging has always been a core element of the BlackBerry smartphone experience. With BlackBerry's push email technology, your email will find you without having to initiate a connection.
Locations lets you easily search for points of interest, businesses, and even the your own location, and insert this information directly into a message--all without leaving the messaging application. Using group messaging and locations together, you can arrange to meet a group of friends easily by sending one message to all of them, discussing together where to meet and then sending a map in one threaded conversation.
Enjoy a full-fidelity, desktop-like browsing experience with the revamped BlackBerry Web browser, which includes intuitive motions like pinching and zooming, and tabs that let you swap between multiple Web pages.
Looking for something? The new universal search feature scans your folders, apps, Internet, email, music, videos, and more all in one search and doesn't stop until it finds what you're looking for.
Multitasking is just another one of those things BlackBerry has been doing right from the beginning. Now Research In Motion (RIM) has gone a step above with multi-connectivity, meaning your apps stay connected whether you're using them or not. Regardless of what you're doing, emails, messages, updates, and notifications keep coming through.
With BlackBerry 6, the multimedia experience has been completely overhauled, enabling you to carry, watch and share your videos, pictures, files, and more. With Remote Media Sync you can now access your home music library right from your BlackBerry smartphone. Scrolling through your music is as easy as swiping through album art, and you can watch and subscribe to podcasts that are pushed to you as soon as they become available.
