BlackBerry Torch; RIMâ€™s Answer iPhone and Android?
The all new BlackBerry Torch from Research In Motion seems to be a completely new rethink of BlackBerry devices in as much as Research In Motion has never before pushed out a slider device with a touch screen and combined physical QWERTY.
The BlackBerry Torch also sports the new BlackBerry 6 operating system which is intended to compete against the likes of Android and iOS, but although the BlackBerry Torch is a new cool device will it be able to stand up against the iPhone and Android over time?
Well we have a video of Aaron Baker of Phone Dog giving his views on that very subject, which he says originally the BlackBerry was specifically a business device with people also carrying a secondary phone for personal use such as the iPhone. However now with the arrival of the BlackBerry Torch the device does business and also personal stuff so there should be no more need to carry an extra personal smartphone.
So could the BlackBerry Torch bring new customers to Research In Motion? It’s doubtful that iPhone or Android users would defect, but the BlackBerry Torch just might stop BlackBerry uses from defecting from RIM. Check out the video below and let us know your thoughts by dropping us a comment.
