Explore the BlackBerry Torch in 3D Augmented Reality

Comments

The AT&T BlackBerry Torch is apparently selling really well and despite rumors that launch day wasn’t too successful, AT&T is putting a lot of marketing dollars behind the device. This is pretty typical with BlackBerry sales as we don’t see a huge launch day but rather steady sales as customers upgrade and renew their plans. The latest marketing initiative from AT&T is a Facebook app that lets you print out a sheet that is recognized by a web cam, and provides you with a 3D augmented reality view of the device. You can even view the Torch in different colors.

Check out the augmented reality Facebook app at AT&T’s BlackBerry page.
