The Blackberry 9860 is the second phone to join the Torch range, following the Torch 9800 last year. RIM has ditched the QWERTY keyboard, both slide out or otherwise, and replaced it with a capacitive touchscreen.
You will be forgiven for having reservations about this after the disappointment of the BlackBerry Storm. But this handset is totally different as it runs the brand new BlackBerry OS 7 which provides a brand new and totally different operating system.
The 1.2Ghz processor should ensure the phone is never slow, with WiFi and 3G built in, along with a GPS for navigation via Blackberry Maps.
Combining the Blackberry features we know and love with a faster touchscreen full QWERTY, the Torch 9860 looks set to provide the best of both world’s for Blackberry fans. But what do you think? Check out the video below and we will have a full written review for you as soon as possible.
