BlackBerry Torch 9810 Video Walkthrough

By Adam Zeis on 3 Aug 2011 07:42 am EDT

Live and in color (and officially this time) we have a video walkthrough of the BlackBerry Torch 9810. As you know the Torch 9810 takes on the form of the original Torch 9800 but boosts the internals to give it that extra kick. It has a brighter screen at 253dpi, a 1.2gHZ processor, 768MB RAM and 8GB of internal memory. You can see the color scheme is a bit different but otherwise the device looks pretty much the same as it's younger brother. The Torch 9810 brings along some BB 7 goodness including RIM's Liquid Graphics. Check out the video above for more.

BlackBerry Torch 9810 Video Walkthrough


Hi Drew,

Douglas from RIM here. Just to clarify, the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930 are the first and only BlackBerry smartphones to deliver NFC technology at this time.

To learn more about what each of the new BlackBerry 7 smartphones has to offer, stop by our Inside BlackBerry Blog for the latest:

How I wish Sprint would get this phone. I love the slide out keyboard. Best of both worlds. Large screen and physical keyboard. One thing I do miss about my Pre, is the larger screen. I love my 9650 and can't wait for the 9930, but to have the 9810 would be incredible. I need a physical keyboard. Here is to wishing.

This is what the original torch should have been. I had the original and just didn't like how slow it got and the problems I had with it. This looks to be much better. Especially the processor.

I am trying to decide between this and the 9900. Is there any issue with hitting the keys on the top of the keyboard? I heard that the hitting the top keys on the 9800 can be a pain. Looking for some user experience to help in the decision between the two devices.

Thanks for any comments.

I've had the 9800 since US release. No issue at all with the top row - using it is really no different than any other row. Keyboard overall is a little cramped in comparison to a Bold or Curve, but it's a tradeoff I accept to get both a full screen and physical keyboard.

FYI, reviews of the T2 claim the keyboard has a better feel than the 9800.

yeah they should've improved on the camera. not a fan of the color choice, they shouldve thinned the phone some more and made A all black one and an all white one.
