BlackBerry Torch 9860 and 9810 announced!




RIM has just announced a couple of new BlackBerry Torch, including the earlier BlackBerry Bold 9900. The BlackBerry Torch 9810 is a slider phone that looks like a successor to the first one while the BB Torch 9860 is a full touch screen phone that reminded us of the Blackberry Storm from many years back.

The BB Torch 9810 is 11.5mm thin, which is not bad for a touchscreen and slider phone. The Torch 9860 also has the same thickness.

These new BlackBerry Torch handsets might take some time to arrive in the Philippines (maybe sometime between October to December this year).

    Too late blackberry. dapat last year pa tong phone na to narelease base sa specs.The same boring UI, and still no decent apps! no wonder Rim’s marketshare is falling fast.
    got bored with my previous blackberry phones because of the lack of content and has low producitvity value unlike Android and iOS devices.
