BlackBerry Torch 9850/9860 Challenge iPhone & Android

Research in Motion (RIM) introduced the BlackBerry five pieces at once to strengthen its product line. One of them is the mainstay of BlackBerry Torch 9850/9860, a full touchscreen smartphone with BlackBerry OS 7.

Torch touch-screen presence is so new effort to compete with RIM’s rivalry in the touchscreen phone market, especially against iPhones and Android phones row. The first attempt with arguably the BlackBerry Storm does not work.

Quoted from PCWorld, Thursday (04/08/2011), physically and specifications, the two series are the same. The difference, Torch 9850 will work on GSM networks and the Torch 9860 runs on CDMA networks.

Both models use the 1.2 GHz processor with 768MB of RAM. Resolution 3.7-inch screen size reaches 480×800, which is still below the screen on the iPhone Retina 4.

Torch touch screen is equipped with a 5 megapixel camera complete with flash and the ability to record 720p high definition video. Unfortunately, there is no front camera for video calls.

In the design sector, 9850/9860 Torch slightly thinner than the iPhone 4, with 9.3 mm thick. Both have 4GB of internal storage capacity can be expanded via microSD up to 32GB.

Compared to Storm, this series is increasing and might be able to counter some Android phone and iPhone. But with the presence of the iPhone 5 and a variety of new Android phones soon, probably Torch 9850/9860 will be missed.
