The BlackBerry Torch has good display but the hardware keys and the on-screen keyboard is not impressive. The 720p video recording is a plus. The battery life is decent, that lasts more than a day with average use with push e-mail, few calls, music...

BlackBerry's biggest touchscreen handset is one of its best, and it's working hard to catch up with the competition. The BlackBerry faithful will appreciate the effort here, but whether it's enough to win over fans of Android or Apple is...

For a price of around Rs 28k, the Torch 9860 does offer a very good touchscreen, a sleek form factor and that same old Blackberry familiarity. This is definitely for someone who wants the goodness of BBM or easy email access, but with a touchscreen....

Expert Review MRP: Rs 28,500Street Price (As On 21-Nov-2011): ; Rs 28,000 (; )A BlackBerry without a QWERTY keypad sounds as weird as a Bollywood movie without a song. Seems like the 9860 wants to challenge touchscreen smartphones with its 3.7"...

It was Friday when I received a rather large package addressed to me. Inside, the Blackberry Torch 9860. First up, I’ve got to admit that I absolutely love this handset. I have had plenty of time to have a little play and a fiddle with this...

Is the BlackBerry Torch 9860 good enough to arrest RIM’s decline? On balance I'd say, yes. It’s fast, well made and mercifully free of dependency on the likes of Zune or iTunes. The UI may not be the last word in cool but it works well...

The BlackBerry 9860 is a perfectly competent handset with a smart design, easy to use interface, and a healthy selection of features. However, when compared to the competition, it's hard to know exactly who the BlackBerry 9860 is going to appeal to....

BlackBerry may have had a bit of a set back lately with the whole “outage” issue but that hasn’t really stopped them from pushing the sales of their new products. One of the latest devices to make it out of the Canadian...

The lack of a physical keyboard may limit the appeal of the Torch 9860 to some existing BlackBerry users, but RIM has done a reasonably good job at copying what the iPhone has to offer, even if it is now effectively a generation behind Apple with both...

Overall the BlackBerry Torch is a great Smartphone and performs well in virtually all areas. That said it is still a BlackBerry and the big question you need to ask yourself is that if you are getting a BlackBerry would you be better suited to one...

The best aspects of the new BlackBerry Torch 9860 are its faster processing speed and large 3.7 inch touch-screen display. In addition, it features an entirely newly designed operating system which is much more vivid and more user-friendly that...

The BlackBerry Torch 9860 turned out to be a great surprise and is excellent value for money. It has a gorgeous screen, decent battery life and plenty of multimedia features that are surprisingly fast. It also features a whole host of extra services,...

RIM has at last proved it can produce a workable toucscreen-only smartphone, finally laying the ghost of the Storm handsets to rest. But in doing so it raises another spectre. We're so used to a widget-based screen system that, on a handset with a...

The BlackBerry Torch 9860 takes a radical departure with its focus on a full touchscreen experience that's enhanced by a touch-friendly BlackBerry 7 OS UI. Its 3.7-inch screen and impressive hardware specifications also contribute towards an overall...

With a large, responsive touchscreen and a powerful processor, the BlackBerry Torch 9860 looks like a great bit of hardware. We do have reservations about the software,...

There's no point telling RIM to mind their own business. That's what they've been doing all along. It's what made them the brand of choice for corporate customers. Some may argue that corporate users don't quite get to choose - and...

BlackBerrys have long been the device of choice for business users, and even while Rim is regaling us with its new ‘multimedia’ device, it seems to be clinging on to its core users by doggedly hanging on to the things that keep its business...

The BlackBerry Torch 9860 is a touchscreen-only smartphone like the iPhone or any generic Android. Given that the BlackBerry calling card has always been excellent physical keyboards (and excellent mail) we’re a bit confused as to the...
