The Blackberry Torch 9860 was released in September 2011. It’s a solidly built handset with a nice design and large 3.7″ touch screen. Although there is no physical keyboard on this model, the touch screen keyboard is very responsive and puts to rest the problems seen in older Blackberry touchscreen models like the Storm. The phone can operate on 2G networks (GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900) and 3G networks (HSDPA 900 / 1700 / 2100 or HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100 / 800).
Some key features on this phone include a 1.2 GHz processor, 2.5 GB storage (with a microSD card slot that can support up to 32 GB of additional storage), and 768 mb of RAM. It measures 120 x 62 x 11.5 mm, weighs 135 grams, has a 3.7 inch (~252 ppi pixel density) TFT capacitive touchscreen with 16M colors, 5 MP autofocus digital camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v2.1, microUSB v2.0, GPS, and operates on BlackBerry 7 OS.
