Device

BlackBerry Torch 9800

BlackBerry Torch 9800 multimedia

Now that you’ve hooked them up with some sweet BlackBerry goods, how about upgrading to one of RIM’s newer devices to complete the experience?  Designed with a new full-featured media player, the Torch quickly accesses your entire music/video library by simply swiping your finger across the screen.  Did we mention that with OS 6 you can expand memory to a whopping 32GB?  That’s approximately 6,000 songs and hours of music bliss.  Finally, connect your device to DM 6 and use WiFi Music sync to synchronize your entire music library from your home computer to your Berry.
