Blackberry Torch & BlackBerry 6 launch

Since the first spy shot and rumours on a new Blackberry slider, I’ve perked up my eyes and ears to watch for the phone’s official launch and announcements. It’s been not too long, but here it is. Blackberry yesterday announced their latest Blackberry phone called Blackberry Torch, running on a new version of their OS, now called BlackBerry 6 (minus the term “OS”).

A quick overview of this much anticipated Blackberry Torch 9800 :-

  • 5 megapixel camera (with flash and auto-focus)
  • 512MB Flash memory with 4 GB internal memory (4GB microSD card included in package)
