Another BlackBerry lands in the PhoneDog Labs! Aaron reviews the BlackBerry Torch 9810, one of the recent devices launched by Research In Motion. Offering a fast 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, the Torch 9810 packs a 3.2-inch display with improved resolution, 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording capabilities, a physical QWERTY keyboard, and BlackBerry 7. It's available at AT&T for $49.99 with a two-year agreement - much more reasonable than the $250 starting point for the BlackBerry Bold 9930.
It's a powerful device that can (finally) compete with the other popular OSes on the market, but will consumers buy, given the $49 price point of the Apple iPhone 3GS? We'll figure it out. Part 2 of 2.
