Thinner Entry Level BlackBerry Torch Slider on the Way?


blackberry torch 9800

The BlackBerry Torch is hands-down one of the best BlackBerrys on the market right now. It combines the fun touchscreen navigation with a keyboard that lets you get work done and send messages quickly. One of the elements of the device that could be improved is the size and weight. The device is a little bulky and feels a little heavy. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it could be better. Rumor has it that RIM will be releasing a thinner, entry level Torch which may not even have a touchscreen. This would make sense as RIM is known to release a wide range of devices that leave out certain features to lower the price point. Hopefully, RIM would make another Torch style device, with QNX and this thinner form factor. These days, it seems that if you can dream it, RIM will make it.

    Wow! After the Playbook, I’m pretty sure that if I can dream it, RIM will build it.
    The non-touchscreen device with slider it would be like a TV without channels… weird things.. But, who knows… there’s market for almost everything! @svmcl
