Tear down posts of a new smartphone don't normally happen until the new device is available for commercial purchase and somebody is crazy enough to sacrifice it to the tech gods. In the case of the BlackBerry Torch 9800, however, we've already got the goods and nobody had to risk their phone. Keep reading to see the vertical slider stripped to its bare guts. We've got a video of the slider mechanism in action (rated for 150,000 cycles +) and you can see the magnesium tray the Torch's display sits in. With all the attention given to attenuation these days you may be curious to see what the Torch's design looks like (hint: it's like a bumper that attaches to the board) and we have that photos of that too. You get the picture... lots of BlackBerry Torch 9800 tear down photos are below. Check them out, and be sure to check out our full BlackBerry Torch 9800 review!
