BlackBerry Torch 9850/9860 Review: The Full Touchscreen Torch

26 Comments

After I first heard that RIM was making another attempt at a full touchscreen device I got excited but then remembered that Blackberry fans felt let down with the launch with the storm, then the storm 2. Those devices definitely left a sour taste in my mouth when it comes to RIM making a full touchscreen device. However, I believe the success of the Torch 9800 played a big part in the making of the Torch 9850/9860. RIM saw that there was a market for touch screen BlackBerrys and decided to go ahead with the full touchscreen Torch. I would say that the most impressive features of this device are Liquid Graphics and the powerful 1.2GHz processor. Read on to get the full scoop on RIM’s first successful full touch screen device.

Comments

gesturepad

GesturePad is a really cool app that lest you define custom gestures and assign them to tasks such as composing an email or SMS, calling a number, showing all of a person’s contact options, opening a website or launching an application. The gestures only work when you have the app launched, so it’s worth setting this app to a convenience key.

Other features of this app include:

  • Unlimited number of custom gestures can be added
  • Option to have a confirmation prompt after gesture
  • Option to have the application close once the gesture is recognized and the action is performed
  • Ability to modify or delete gestures after you have created them

GesturePad is available in the store for a very reasonable $0.99 at this link.

What Would You Think of a Rotating BlackBerry Keyboard?

Comments

rotating blackberry keyboard

Patents aren’t proof that RIM will be implementing anything but they’re fun to use as talking points. A recent patent filed by RIM shows a BlackBerry using a rotating keyboard, allowing the user to go from landscape keyboard to keypad. The schematics for the device make it look pretty ugly, but a rotating keyboard could be really useful. On the Torch for example, there are moments where you wish you could type on a physical keyboard without having to use the virtual keyboard.

Do you think the rotating keyboard idea looks cool or is it just awkward?
