I wish RIM would release this on Verizon and not just AT&T. I would love to have this phone, with the bigger screen and actual keyboard, but AT&T is just not the best in my area. RIM please quit these exclusives with carriers! It only hurts the ones that want this and can't have it.
I'm also looking forward to its release, keen for a change after HTC touch pro2 + windows 6.5 – ready to experience a smart phone and OS that actually work together!! Bring on the TORCH 2!!!
Anonymous, 05 Jun 2011as always poor batterylife!!!!Blackberry generally has the best battery life. Not sure where you're getting this 'as always' thought.
jd, 31 May 2011do you think i buy blackberry torch 1 or wait until torch 2? Cause i really want have one..I can't wait for this phone to come out. I really miss my keyboard (I'm using an HTC right now) and this one finally seems to have the internet mastered!! Any idea when it's coming out???

Anonymous, 28 May 2011better than torch.it has 1.2ghz processordo you think i buy blackberry torch 1 or wait until torch 2? Cause i really want have one..
Riaan, 11 Apr 2011Well what can i say, they should definitely look at video calling, a big concern for business ... morethats so true. quite a bad design flaw. I have one myself. Excellent phone apart from that. I hate myself for saying it but will probbly have to get an iphone next time for this reason. Unless the blackberry storm 3 is really gud.
About the battery life on the torch 1? I can listen to mp3s from 7am to 4pm in standby and still have half of my battery life left. Also go to a authorize att dealer and ask if they match prices? If they say yes. Tell them to go to walmart.com and you'll see the torch available in 3 colors for $30 with a 2 year agreement. Hopes this help and remember to paint happy and big soft clouds!
I really am happy to see them go ahead and make a torch 2. I currently have the torch and I am very pleased with it. The 1.2 upgrade will definitely come in handy for streaming videos. I really like bb cause I don't feel ripped off cause a new and better model just came out when I just signed a 2 year a couple months ago. All smart phones are a plus and a certain amount of time to adjust to. I've been a bb user since I got my hands on the tour model. Love the keyboard and even bigger and better screen on the torch and its slide out. Can't really say I like att much though. Paying $115 a month for a almost unlimited plan with 2 gigs of data. I just want to listen to Pandora unlimited. Should be interesting now that att bought out t-mobile and probably will get exclusive rights to the torch 2. If you hate expensive plans and worst customer service go with a different provider. At the end of the day its just a phone and your preference. I prefer bb cause of the touch screen and slide out keyboard for easier texting. Hate the constant new releases phones every 3 months. At least the torch 2 will be the king of bb for a year or 2. Great job bb!
Well what can i say, they should definitely look at video calling, a big concern for business men, the TFT should be increased, battery life most def however for me stability of slide as that wares off within a month or two which causes instability... again what is the advantages of a 1.2 processor
Can someone please explain me whats the plus of a 1.2 processor?
I want to but BB but cant decide if its worth waiting till next model!!!
i believe its time RIM released a phone with 2 camera that allows video calling 4 business men n families away from home n i personal thought torch 2 would come on with something like that
Blackberry needs to 1-update the TFT with more advance display 2-update the RAM for more 3-update the thike of the device 4-update the battery life for more time to talk 5-open the appworld for more countries .. they will be again The best ..
Anonymous, 14 Mar 2011Who the hell needs another camera on the front? Why are people going on about that. Sod video... morePlease I mean where have you been liiving under a rock "BB are for businessmen" dat is pure kak. BB are for people qhake. If u can use the but buy it. And the BB torch2 is nothing bt the same phone in a different shell
Who the hell needs another camera on the front? Why are people going on about that. Sod video calls. BB's are for businessmen, not children. Go and buy an iphone if you want that. This new bb torch will be killer. 1.2 GHZ processor! Exactly what this phone needs. I have a torch 1 and I think that is its only downfall. It also could do with having adobe flash player as well.
c'mon RIM i am a bb finatic, but a bit dissapointed with this announcement, mainly cuz, all i'm seeing is a faster Processor and more pixel... not reason enough for me to say i'll be running to the stores to replace my BB Torch 1... make me motivated to buy one instead of dreading about it cuz there might be an upgraded version 3 months after... ;-(
