In the first BlackBerry Torch video, Adam went ahead and unboxed the device. In this video, we continue our coverage of the BlackBerry Torch and walk through some of the main hardware features of the BlackBerry 6 OS-sporting smartphone.



The BlackBerry Torch’s front side is dominated by a 3.2-inch touchscreen and resembles the BlackBerry Storm, but unlike the Storm the Torch doesn’t use a SurePress click screen technology and the touchscreen, which supports multitouch gestures, operates like a regular smartphone touchscreen.

When the screen is slid up in portrait mode, the keyboard underneath resembles that of the BlackBerry Bold. Like the Bold, the keys are arranged in a contiguous layout, with beveled edges and ridges at the edges of the keys to provide for a better, more accurate typing experience. The Torch’s keyboard sounded more clicky and had a more loud sound than that on the BlackBerry Tour and Bold, and the keys are more shallow and have less travel to them. In general, the typing experience on the Torch is great, and it’s a matter of personal preference whether you like the Tour/Bold keyboard or the Torch’s keyboard.

Additionally, the Torch comes equipped with 4 GB of internal memory and comes pre-loaded with a 4 GB micro SDHC card–up to 32 GB is supported. Bluetooth, WiFi b/g/n, GPS, accelerometer, light sensor, proximity sensor, and 3G HSPA is supported on the device.
