BlackBerry Torch unveiled -- iPhone, Android competitor?
The next-generation touch screen BlackBerry Torch was just unveiled today on AT&T's network, for $199 for a two-year contract (no firm date on when device goes on sale). It sports a portrait slider/pull-out keyboard, 5 MP camera with flash, souped-up touch Web browser, and integrated messaging and social networking features.
Perhaps the most important thing you need to know is that this phone features Research in Motion's new BlackBerry 6 operating system -- which is meant to compete with iPhone and Android.
From AT&T's Website, one of the selling points is a "Full HTML tabbed browser for "PC-like" Web browsing with tabbed browsing for access to multiple web pages at the same time and pinch-to-zoom capability."
Take a look at the full specs here -- is anyone impressed?
