RIM launched the BlackBerry Torch 9800

A couple of days ago, Research In Motion (RIM) launched its latest BlackBerry smartphone here in the Philippines, the BlackBerry Torch 9800. The Torch 9800 is BlackBerry’s flagship smartphone with dual input capability from its capacitive touchscreen or from a slideout QWERTY keyboard.

It will be the first BlackBerry here in the country to have the latest BlackBerry 6 OS which offers a lot of long-awaited improvements BB users are clamoring for. It is also the only BlackBerry at this time that has a 5 megapixel camera.

One peculiar thing about the BlackBerry Torch is its 624MHz processor which is a bit low for a flagship model considering that other new phones out there already has a 1GHz processor. When asked about their choice of processor, RIM reps told us that with the way how their phone works, you won’t need a powerful chip to enjoy and fully experience a BlackBerry. Using the Torch for a bit, it is indeed responsive and navigating through its UI is very fluid.

BlackBerry Torch 9800 Specs:

  • 3.2″³ display @ 360×480 pixels
  • 512MB RAM, 512MB ROM
  • 4GB storage (up to 32GB via microSD, 4GB included)
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • 5MP autofocus camera w/ LED flash + video
  • BlackBerry OS 6.0
  • GPS w/ a-GPS support
  • 1300mAh Li-Ion battery

Pricing and Availability

No price is announced yet for the BlackBerry Torch but it will definitely be higher than that of the BlackBerry Bold which is going for Php28,995 for the prepaid kit price. RIM also mentioned that it will be available in time for the holidays.
