This week the BlackBerry Torch launched and we have a lot of great content. Make sure to bookmark this page and watch all of the BlackBerry launch event videos we have on the site (more on the way). The BlackBerry Torch launch has been generally a nightmare for RIM from a mainstream media perspective. Several newspapers have negative stories about the Torch on their front page which is really surprising. It seems everyone is forgetting what makes BlackBerry great and why it’s the number 1 smartphone. We’ll have a review up soon so stay tuned.
