360 View of BlackBerry Torch 9800 Slider Phone on RIM

During today’s live press event by RIM and AT&T CEO’s, we found out that the new BlackBerry was called “Torch” and had a model of 9800. The new BlackBerry slider phone will only be available on AT&T’s network.

Mike Lazaridis – RIM co-CEO — said that the BlackBerry Torch got it’s name from the company that helped them put it together, and the device is the first to have a WebKit browser.

The official BlackBerry Torch 9800 page has just gone live on Research In Motion’s site, and here you can see a 360 view of the new BlackBerry. It really looks nice, especially being able to see from all angles.

Main features include a tethered modem, GPS, Wi-Fi, camera and video recording, social feeds, instant messaging, 3G network support, a full QWERTY keyboard, optical trackpad, and a 3.2-inch HVGA+ touch screen that can sense light and has a proximity detector.

You can see the full specs and features on blackberry.com. Have a look at the 360 view, and the official RIM page, and then let us know what you think of the new BlackBerry.

This might seem like a silly question, but does it hold much music, or would I need a media card of some sort? And can I plug earphones into it?

There is a front facing camera and you can see it in the image in the top right of the phone.

a frontal camera would make this phone accessible for live video calls for the hearing and speaking challenged people and I think RIM should certainly take that into consideration in the near future.
Just a suggestion here.
Thanks

This is a really lovely one… But,my fear is the sliding part of it… I hope it won’t give any problems… Definitely upgrading if it won’t…

This phone would've been great if it has a front-facing camera. For almost all of the high-end smartphones nowadays, are switching to that, ever since the iPhone 4, touted that it's one of the most important App for everyone. Blackberry Torch: Things You Should Know
