Compare Torch 9860 Deals

Most of the BlackBerry range is made up of impressive business smart phones with physical keypads and the occasional small touchscreen on show to appease the modern consumer. However, the BlackBerry Torch 9860 stands out from these models thanks to its focus on an entirely touch-based user interface which does away with most of the physical buttons and so competes more directly with contemporary smart phones.

Long-time BlackBerry fans will be impressed with the screen itself, which measures 3.7 inches across the diagonal and has a native resolution of 480x800. This gives you a greater surface area than something such as the iPhone 4 and it also benefits from the touch-optimised BB OS 7 operating system which will keep your fingers dancing across the display.

Powered by a 1.2GHz single-core processor, the BlackBerry Torch 9860 boasts good performance levels and a smooth, flowing interface. It also means that the five-megapixel camera on the back can record high-definition video, which is a nice touch not often found on BlackBerry handsets.

Despite the major physical changes, the core features of the Torch 9860 remain firmly in line with previous BlackBerry iterations. Email and messaging services are some of the best around, allowing you to stay in touch with colleagues and friends wherever you happen to be.

The Torch 9860 is the BlackBerry of choice for anyone who wants to invest in a handset which retains many features found on other models such as the Bold or Curve while also experiencing contemporary touchscreen technology wrapped up in a slim, stylish chassis.
