BlackBerry Torch 9860 Hardware Impressions

|

"The BlackBerry Torch 9860 is a great media and web browsing device. With its smooth design and snappy processor, fans of touchscreen devices will eat it up, but those that rely on heavy messaging may want to pass for a full QWERTY device."


At first glance the BlackBerry Torch 9860 doesn't look much like your typical BlackBerry. There is obviously no physical keyboard on the device, so without the shiny BlackBerry logo on top, you may not know right away this is a RIM device. The Torch 9860 breaks off from the design and form of nearly every other BlackBerry we've known. It doesn't show much of a resemblance to the BlackBerry Torch 9800, but rather feels closer to a mix of the BlackBerry Storm 2 and BlackBerry Pearl 3G when in hand.

The device is nearly all screen, saving the bottom for raised buttons and the trackpad for navigation. It's hard to say if I liked the look of the Torch 9860 at first, but it definitely grows on you. The raised buttons and trackpad kind of take away from the overall aesthetic of the device and would have looked better if they were more flush (like the rumored Curve 9380) and fitting with the rest of the device.
