People pays the extra buck for a 1ghz processor on a phone that software does not require a 1ghz processor. Some mobile OS may require a faster processor and it makes a difference sometimes. Anyways, blackberry been using the same 624 with 3 devices now including the new torch. Enhanced new OS 6.0 and the battery life yet is amazing. My Battery last's a whole day on my Bold 9700 6am to 11 pm, and besides the bold is still a pretty fast device. 1ghz processor = battery drain.
mobile phone retaile, 06 Aug 2010How can blackbverry even stand a chance on the SMart phone market when people are prepared to ... moreWell just because the Torch doesn't have a 1 ghz processor, does not mean it is necessarily worse. Typically, the more mhz causes the battery life to shorten. BlackBerry is almost as fast as an iPhone 4 because it doesn't have as many components as the iPhone 4 which makes it almost as fast with a little more than half the mhz. Still, the BlackBerry still has a more organized concept while the iPhone is still mainly for multimedia.
Umm, not that I'm defending the "guy who says he has 3 phones" but, I also have more than one phone. It's the beauty of having a GSM carrier. I can buy any phone I like and keep my same SIM card in it without renewing contracts or anything. Now, you ask why someone would have 3 phones, and imply that he is a drug dealer. I'm not a dealer, I currently in the interview period of a job in import/exports. I have 3 phones, just because I can and I want to. For your info, I have the 8520, SE P1i, Nokia N95 and a "lost" SE k750i from a long time ago. So, yeah.
I dont see any CPU installed in this phone.Does it only use a conventional CPU usually found in conventional Calculator ??
i am a user of nokia till 1 year back,i had used e90,e71,e72,almost all bussiness class,now i am using storm 2 there is no words to give a wrong feedback for this phone,if u are a real business handset needed person,storm is a good choice,loved this phones sure press tech,
Fantastic, always loved BB. Does anyone know about the CPU? and when it's gonna launch worldwide?

I'm a "CrackBerry" and a user of multiple BlackBerry devices for the past few years.
However, when I saw the device, my first reaction in terms of device was "What the ...?" was RIM thinking?
The reason for my shock was that RIM had released a very, slim, stylish and "suave" device in the Pearl 3G. In contrast, this device, though internally it has many improvements lacks the "new" or as we should say "modern" design feel. Rather the design of the device looks like one of those massive Samsung or Motorola Qwerty keyboard handsets.
Was anyone or any other "CrackBerry" alos disgusted at the physical design of the handset?
After my contract finishes with Optus (Australia), I'll probably just stick to my plan of obtaining the sleek Pearl 3G rather than this hunk of metal.
Anonymous, 06 Aug 2010in the WLAN, what does carrier dependent mean?thats only with UMA
UMA allows you to connect to a wireless router and boost your network coverage signal if you live in a blackspot / poor signal area.
To the guy that 'claims' he has an 8900, a desire and an iPhone 4. Get a life mate!
1. Who needs 3 phones? Drug dealer are we?
2. You clearly know nothing about phones if you think the 8900 is the superior of these three.
Apps / screen size / screen quality / Processor / Mobile internet speed / customization features.... need i go on...
Be nice to see the improvements Blackberry have made with the new Torch, awful name though....
this phone looks very stylish, i havent got a hands on experience with it as yet but i am planning to get myself one s soon as it it available.....i really like the upgraded OS that RIM had put into the phone...
I am a hard fast Sony user' i have considered bb before but this one i am very interested in and eagerly await the arrival.
I read the full review of these cellphone in engadget... and really have some flows, and good stuff... engadget said THERE IS NO FLASH SUPPORT IN THE BROWSER and thats really sucks
mobile phone retaile, 06 Aug 2010How can blackbverry even stand a chance on the SMart phone market when people are prepared to ... moreu are impressive with the firmware of the 8900?, wow , that was sad... there is a hole world of advance and true technology waiting outside for you
Blackberry Torsh looks awesome, I have a storm and I find it fantastic. About the processor, it is not a matter of speed, if RIM didn't go with 1 GHZ they have a reson they are not fool.
By the way RIM has more experience than apple in phones so no need to compare apple with peaches.
Anonymous, 05 Aug 2010I agree with you. The technology in this phone sucks. they took an unsuccessful Storm and mixe... morei use a blackberry curve 8900 and an htc desire and an iPhone4 and the blackberry curve is the better of these handsets, who cares about the processor if the handset doesn't do the normal things it's meant to do, other than the storm 2 theres not been a blackberry i've used that i dont love.
