If there is one thing that the makers of the new Blackberry Torch made sure, is that e-mailing will never be the same with the new Blackberry Torch. RIM (Research In Motion) made sure that Blackberry's strength when it comes to messaging and email services will not be compromised by the phone's design or look. It may be the company's first slide phone, but it will not tolerate failing in this area where Blackberry is known for. If you are an avid Blackberry user, then I am sure that you know what I am talking about. The only thing is that, if you are not used to how RIM do things, then you will most likely find it as a problem. But worry no more, whether you are new to RIM's ways or not, the Blackberry Torch is made to be user-friendly.
When it comes to emails, let's say that you use Gmail, then I am sure that you will like opening your Gmail account with the Torch. Just like the web-based email application of Gmail, you can archive, label, thread, starring, spam, etc. It is all possible with the help of a built-in plug-in specifically designed for Gmail.
Getting started is relatively easy with the Blackberry Torch, you only need your standard Gmail login details to log in to your mail using your mobile phone. Once you are in, you will be given the option to whether synch your contacts or not. But the thing is it will automatically sync your calendar whether you approve it or not. The rest will be done and be sent back to Google's servers immediately. However, if you do the changes using the web application first, then it will take a lot of time before any changes will reach your mobile phone. So I do suggest that you do the changes using your Blackberry torch first, before you touch the web-based application.
With the Torch, you will get two in-boxes, one for your messages folder, and the other one for your email inbox. An instant notification will then flash through your home screen. Now, this is handy most especially if you are fond of checking your emails while you are on the road or basically away from a computer. There will no longer be trips made to your desktop or laptop once you have the Torch with you.
Another great thing about this phone is that there is a unified inbox where you will see your email, MMS, SMS, and BBM all in one place. Handling your communications has never been this easy. And this is only possible with the new Blackberry Torch.
