What's to come in the Final Round: The final round of CrackBerry Idol is the oh so important BlackBerry device review. To keep the content interesting for our readers and fair yet challenging for our competitors, here's what we're planning to do. Each finalist is going to receive a brand new BlackBerry Torch 9800 (that they'll get to keep) and will be assigned a particular usage profile from which to review the device. I've already done the full-out CrackBerry BlackBerry Torch Review, so these will be follow-up reviews that assess the Torch's performance based on how a person would use the device given a particular set of needs. For example, we'll see the BlackBerry Torch 9800 reviewed from the perspective of a business professional, a first time smartphone owner, a social user, etc. We'll put a word cap on the reviews (1500 words) so it'll be a big challenge to pack a lot of punch into not a lot of space. If all goes according to plan, you'll be able to see the the first review hit CrackBerry starting August 30th. Stay tuned for the finals!!
