The release of the BlackBerry Torch 9800 smart phone has been received with mixed reviews, as there are some who welcome it and others who think it is mostly just good PR. Current BlackBerry users will find the new improvements just what they have been waiting for, and here are a few things they did to an already excellent phone.

The first thing that is noticeably different with the Torch is a 3.2 inch high resolution touch screen and also a 35 key full QWERTY keyboard. Both of these improvements are extremely user friendly for people on the move who send emails and texts.
The Torch 9800 also comes with a new and improved 5 Megapixel camera. It has a lot of very nice features like face detection, autofocus, flash, and a high resolution 720p video recorder to name just a few of them.
The software in previous Blackberry's has been slow and unreliable at times causing frustration to many users. The BlackBerry Torch features a newly installed system, and it is a big improvement on the last one using a much quicker and durable operating system called the BlackBerry 6.
If you think that's all they have done, well you are wrong, the Torch comes with a whole load of apps specifically for the BlackBerry. The phone is fully customizable through wall papers, ring tones, and menus etc. This is to give the user full personalization of the phone, and they can also incorporate their own ideas into the system using various applications.

One of the new pre installed applications on the 9800 is the BBM system which has a live chat facility and also instantly tells you when a message has been sent and received. This enables the user to know whether their messages are being read.
The BlackBerry Torch is an excellent choice over its competitors and for those who are currently in the market for a new phone, this one comes highly recommended. Why? Well if a touch screen, full keyboard, 5 meg camera, and tons of apps isn't enough then how about WiFi, GPS, and 8Gb of memory plus much more. This phone is not to be overlooked, if you are changing your current one you may be very surprised how good it actually is.
