The BlackBerry Storm is back, but under the Torch family. See what's new in CNET's hands-on photo gallery of the BlackBerry Torch 9860.
RIM BlackBerry Torch 9860
The BlackBerry Torch 9860 offers the biggest display of any BlackBerry at 3.7 inches. It will come to both AT&T and Sprint later this year, and like the others, offers a 1.2GHz processor, BlackBerry OS 7, and a 5-megapixel camera.
RIM did not reveal the exact resolution of the smartphone's display, but it looked bright and sharp. It was also responsive as we were easily able to navigate through the menus. BlackBerry OS 7 features something called Liquid Graphics technology, which along with the processor, should deliver smoother and better-looking graphics.
There's a slight curve to the back of the phone, but it makes for a nice groove where you can place your hand. The smartphone measures 4.72 inches tall by 2.44 inches wide by 0.45 inch thick and is sleeker and more compact than the Storm models.
BlackBerry OS 7 devices come preloaded with Documents to Go Premium, BlackBerry Balance, which helps you keep your work content separate from your personal content, BlackBerry Protect, and an updated Social Feeds app.
