Mobile-Cell-Phone RIM have been the pioneers of handsets boasting full Qwerty keypad for many years now, however the brands attempts at touchscreen phones remain somewhat unsuccessful. That is set to change with this latest release, the Blackberry 9800 Torch, a superb handset with a great quality touch sensitive screen. Despite its lack of keys on the fascia, the handset is still unmistakably a Blackberry, with the dimensions almost identical to the 9700 model. Measuring 111 x 62 x 14.6mm, the phone is still a little on the chunky side compared to some of the other smart phones currently on the market. You can forgive some of this extra bulk though as when the screen is slid upwards, an excellent quality Qwerty keypad is revealed, which as you would expect, blows other manufacturers attempts at this format out of the water. If you do not fancy using this keypad, the touchscreen gives you a choice of three alternative virtual layouts. The screen itself is a step up from the screen found on the recent Blackberry Curve 3G, with a resolution of 480 x 360 pixels. The screen benefits from being a capacitive touch screen in that it is very responsive, more so than the resistive kind of screen found on many phones. The phone comes with 512MB of RAM memory as well as 4GB of storage. In addition to this memory can be increased to 32GB by adding a micro SD card. The camera facility on the Blackberry Torch is impressive. The phone can shoot images in a 5 mega pixel quality that produces very high quality results. The user interface has improved from other models, meaning it is easier to now select the photo mode you wish to use and generally perform other functions related to the camera. Video footage can also be captured on the phone. This is in a relatively low resolution at 640 x 480, but none the less the results are still satisfactory. When it comes to viewing your results, the picture gallery is much improved, with organising your galleries a simple affair. The addition of pinch and zoom makes viewing photographs zoomed in very simple. Audio facilities have also seen a revamp, with album covers looking great on the new system. A host of audio file formats are supported including eAAC+, WAV and MP3. All things considered, the Blackberry Torch has done a great job of introducing some great improvements alongside old favourites such as the keyboard. The result is a handset that Blackberry fans will love, as will many newcomers thanks to the great touchscreen display. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
