Research In Motion's BlackBerry Torch 9810 is the second iteration of the company's original touchscreen/QWERTY slider smartphone. It replaces the 9800 model offered by AT&T last year, and offers upgrades on a number of the main components - not the least of which is the new high-res touchscreen display.
Also new is the BlackBerry OS 7 smartphone operating system with its new "Liquid Graphics" engine, which gives the entire OS a more fluid, polished look. Apart from the improved aesthetics, though, the OS feels very much like last year's version 6. It's a nice upgrade, but not one that has a real major impact on how the phone works.
In any case, the 9810 is a nicer phone than the original in many regards, and should make many BlackBerry fans out there quite happy.
