Torch 9800 First Week Review

TORCH 9800 FIRST WEEK REVIEW Unless you have been living under a rock (or an iPhone 4) for the past week, you very well know that Research In Motion released their new OS6 on their new device the Torch 9800 on August 12th.  Some of you may not have had the chance to own/play with one of these yet because you don’t have AT&T. Worry not though, Rogers Wireless and supposedly sprint will have them soon (Novemberish….)  This review will break down a few of the new features that OS6 has as well as the Torch including webkit browser, social feeds, connections menu, interactive tool tray, universal search,virtual keyboard, QWERTY physical keyboard, media player, battery life and updated specifications of the device. WEBKIT BROWSER The new webkit browser is the corner-stone of the new OS6.  Users will find it as a breath of fresh air from the moment they open the browser. You will find “Bookmarks,” and “History” underneath the address bar for easy access to your favorite sites and your history.  To the right of the address bar you will find a tab’s option that opens multiple tabs so you can have multiple sites open at once. Scrolling back and forth on these tabs is very smooth and sensitive to the touch. Most of the websites that the browser opens are mobile sites, but clicking on a web pages “full site” will render very quickly and fit perfectly to the screen. That means no more frantically using your track pad to navigate on the page.  The webkit browser also uses an auto text focus feature and text wrapping to make reading script on a page extremely easy to the reader.  Webkit over wifi is extremely fast, and easily keeps up with the iphone 4 or any of the droids running 2.0. Webkit over 3G is faster in my opinion than …

BlackBerry Bold 9780 Caught Running Os6

Here we have images of the unreleased Bold 9780 Caught running Os6. This is the first time myself, or any of my team members have seen a BlackBerry QWERTY phone running this particular Os6. These glimpses of Os6 were provided by Driphter, and are the first to emerge. At first glance the home screen of the device running Os6 seems to be like nothing seen. Very sleek and smooth and not so bulky. All the buttons seem to blend in with the device which is really nice, a much drastically improved version from Os4. It also seems to have new icons that have been added which is always nice, can’t complain about fresh icons. If you have any pictures of your BlackBerry running Os6, Show it off in the forums.blackberrympire.com/forum

BlackBerry 9800 Flaunts Startup, Graphics and More!! Exclusive Vid!

Salomondrin is at it again, this time he collaborated with Terrible Bean and they have brought us another exclusive look at BlackBerry 6 using the BlackBerry 9800 Slider/Torch. Don’t you just love how responsive the touch is on this smartphone? The Frequent, and Favorites tab look very compelling, i’m sure it won’t take long to get everything adjusted in order. I can’t wait for the new media layout, great job by RIM so far. I still have yet to see the new camera feature. I know its only a 5.0 megapixel, but still, 2.0 to 3.2 has a huge clarity difference, so i’m curious as to see how 5.0 looks. What do you think? Which feature is your favorite?    Click here to view in Mobile

Unconfirmed BlackBerry 9800 Release Date! Rumor!

For months already we have been teased by the BlackBerry 9800 Slider/Torch model. It has popped up on several sites, and left us BlackBerry users more at ease knowing the interface has been brushed up, and a new progressive Operating System has been added. We have seen video rundowns of the device from the hardware to the sofware, and we even know AT&T is going to carry this device. However, we were never prompted with a released date.  Well today, VentureBeat has made a statement that caught my attention. According to VentureBeat, John Albright of the BlackBerry Partners Fund informed that the BlackBerry 9800 is scheduled to arrive to AT&T on August 15th while he spoke at the paid Content Mobile Conference. My guess is that RIM was not kidding when they had this to tweet yesterday – #BB6iscoming. Another interestting note I read is that thousands of developers already have the 9800 in their hands. That means thousands of issues are getting looked at which makes me hope this device really is sharp when it gets released.   If this is true, are you exited?  How many many AT&T customers are going upgrade to get this device? And how many of you are going to buy it full price from somewhere and unlock it so you can use it for your carrier? Let us know, we’re interested!

Webkit Browser and OS6 Video Rundown

We just got a hold of some great footage provided by Salomondrin. He has posted 3 new videos of the new BlackBerry WebKit browser running the acid 3 test comparison. He also compares the older BlackBerry browser next to the iphone and Android Browser. Overall, the vids provide great insight on the new Browser. One of the videos flaunts the new media center, which is just awesome. The title scrolling is enabled and the layout is captivating. The acid 3 browser test is quite responsive running on 3G.  In comparison to the other devices, the BlackBerry holds up well. The iphone 4 scored 185 points, HTC Droid at 151 on 2.1, older BlackBerry browser 1 point. The new WebKit browser reached 208 points out of 300. I’m really liking these new changes that have been made to the BlackBerry platform. There has been concern with the BlackBerry browser and critics believe that it ‘under performs.’ Not anymore! These videos should turn skeptics into BlackBerry believers! See for youself below. Old v. New Browser   click here to view in mobile Continue Reading for More >>>

BlackBerry Clamshell 9670 Captured on Video! Exclusive!

The new videos of the BlackBerry 9670 aka “Camshell” that surfaced earlier today have BlackBerry fans at the edge of their seats. The 2 part videos break down the hardware and software of the device, allowing BlackBerry fans an exclusive view of how the 9670 looks and functions. I really like how the 9670 looks in comparison to the 9700 and 9650. The clamshell appears as if it fits perfectly into any pocket or purse slot.  Hardware: Starting with the left side of the device, it has the headset jack on the top followed by the micro usb charging port beneath it. The Clamshell 9670 has the sd card slot on the bottom left side, which reminded me of my previous original Bold 9000. To the right of the device are the volume buttons, which can also change your track when listening to music through the media player. Below the volume buttons is the camera, or right side conveniene key. No keys on the top of the device such as mute or lock can be seen, so there is nothing to officially confirm, but what can be seen, is the full spacious QWERTY keypad. There is a lot of breathing room so typing on it will be much more efficient. It looks so spacious, the mute and lock buttons can be implemented on top of the call/hang up buttons. The outer and inner screens look large enough to enjoy browsing, emailing, and multimedia usage. Software: Moving on to the software of the device, one can notice the new 6.0 operating system instantly. It looks smooth and responsive with 8 icons on the front, which can be customized. I noticed the time has been moved from the middle of the screen, to the left and under the battery level. The sound profiles are beneath the time. The layout throughout the menu options have been spread out making the text …
