Introducing the Revolutionary BlackBerry Torch 9800 Smartphone

BlackBerry 6, the full keyboard, and a high-res touch screen mark this as a major innovation

“I love my keyboard,” is the near-universal response when you ask a BlackBerry® smartphone owner what they love about their device. That is typically followed by, “Never take it away from me.” Such devotion is easy to understand: a full keyboard is faster for typing, something which BlackBerry smartphone users do quite a bit.

But today's smartphones have another beloved feature: high-res touch screens that let you gesture your way around apps and the web. Now you do not need to choose between the two. The new BlackBerry® Torch™ 9800 smartphone delivers the best of both worlds—full QWERTY keyboard and brilliant touch screen—without compromise.

Tap, swipe, pinch, zoom

The 3.2-inch HVGA+ touch screen lets you tap, swipe, pinch, and zoom your way around pictures and web pages, watch videos in stunning quality, and even makes ordinary emails stand out. Typing is remarkably easy with different onscreen keyboard options.

Powered by the new BlackBerry 6 OS

BlackBerry® 6 does more than just make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Graphical menus welcome you and intuitive navigation gives you the freedom to explore with ease. Everything has been designed to give you a more visual, fluid, and dynamic experience that helps stimulate your senses. It’s like your BlackBerry smartphone with a complete makeover—all the good stuff is still there, it just looks, feels, and acts better than ever.

  • Social feeds: One total view of all of your different points of inspiration
  • Universal search: Easy-to-find information makes acting on inspiration fast and easy
  • Visual, fluid design: Intuitive design makes action easier
  • Faster, richer web browsing: Manage multiple open websites with tabbed browsing
  • Simple setup: Intuitive, engaging setup helps you skip right to inspiration and action
  • Engaging multimedia experience: Get a fully enhanced experience with new photo modes, pinch and zoom, and more

Built for mobility

This is a BlackBerry smartphone built for mobility. It comes with built-in GPS for navigating BlackBerry® Maps and Wi-Fi® for fast connections when in a hotspot range. The long-lasting battery holds up while out and about. And 8GB of memory* is plenty for taking songs, videos, and photos on the road.

Slider makes it compact

Even with the full keyboard and large touch screen, the BlackBerry Torch 9800 smartphone is still small enough to fit in your purse or pocket. The keyboard remains tucked inside the smartphone until needed. Then it smoothly slides out for faster typing.

Love the extras

Extras worth mentioning include a touch-sensitive optical trackpad for precision navigation, and 512 MB of flash memory and 512 MB of RAM for running multiple apps at once. The new screen displays vivid photos and videos from the 5-megapixel camera with flash, image stabilization, and auto-focus. Plus, you can choose among 11 options for the best picture-taking modes like “party,” “night,” and “whiteboard.”

The completely revamped browser is faster than ever and super efficient. Translation? You can browse web pages with ease and sit comfortably knowing all that extra web browsing isn't using up all your data. With intuitive motions like pinching and zooming, and tabs that let you swap between multiple web pages, it's BlackBerry browsing at its best.

The BlackBerry Torch 9800 smartphone is available now. Check your wireless service provider for availability.
