3.8 stars

(How we score)

Solid hardware build, high-res display, fantastic camera, dependable keyboard
Mediocre battery life for a BlackBerry, OS looks nice but feels dated, bad lags at times


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.

You'll find two videos of the BlackBerry Torch 9810 in action after the Table of Contents, below.
