The slide black- berry phone, which is very attractive to the buyers. For current blackberry holders, understand that this phone is a fusion of the storm and bold. In addition, it performs like the android. According to RIM, the torch is more advance with more features than its predecessors. Including: expandable memory up to 32GB, enhanced music player, 5 MP camera, integrated social feeds, faster browsing, intro lessons, and better battery life. RIM claims this phone should combat Apple’s iphone. We will have to wait next year to see some results. Unfortunately, as unique this phone is there are major downsides which could have put RIM in better competition. Like the iphone, the torch is only available on AT&T. Not many people will be willing to switch phone companies just to have the big next thing. Blackberry’s new Plus for those who aren't use to sliders may find some difficulty and are probably bet- member Torch, the ter off with their current phone. slider torch phone, provided by AT&T Crackberry does a video of a full review on this phone.

Rather or not is this phone worth making the switch or the purchase. Personally, I prefer the 3G Pearl and Storm 2. After looking at this phone it will be given 4 out of 5. Why only 4? Its AT&T exclusive and AT&T is known for its high cost compare to Verizon, t-mobile, and sprint. Also the phone is huge and that’s not good if you only have small hands.
