Overview of BlackBerry Torch 9860 (Monza)
With its full touch, 3.7 inch screen the Torch 9860 is the natural successor to the Storm family from BlackBerry. Although it may lack the iconic BlackBerry keyboard, the 9860 makes up for this in sheer design quality and physical appeal.
The 9860 is part of the first range of devices to be powered by the new BlackBerry 7 OS. BlackBerry 7 includes a greatly improved web browser supporting pinch to zoom and HTML5 video as well as the powerful Liquid Graphics interface to breathe new life into your photos, videos, games and apps and keep BlackBerry up to speed with the competition. BlackBerry Balance is also included as a brand new feature to keep your work and personal content streams separated. The ever popular BBM service has now been upgraded to version 6 so it’s never been easier to stay up to date.
All these extras need a power boost and the Torch 9860 helps BlackBerry to join the current range of smartphones with a powerful 1.2 GHz processor and improved graphics processing to keep everything running super smooth. There is also microSD slot, 5 MP camera with HD recording, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi and a 1230 mAh battery to round up the usual Smartphone credentials.
