Yesterday, the Social Media team at Research In Motion® (RIM®) celebrated the launch of our new BlackBerry® 7 OS smartphones with our special guests of honor: BlackBerry® super fans, BlackBerry customers, and the new all-touch BlackBerry® Torch™ 9850 and 9860 smartphones.
We always have a blast talking face to face with shoppers and BlackBerry smartphone users, but we are also there to gather important feedback. Your opinions of our smartphones contribute to the creation of their successors, and we were particularly excited to gather feedback on our first sole all-touch BlackBerry Torch smartphone.
So, let’s hear what people had to say! Below, you will find early hands-on impressions of the all-touchBlackBerry Torch 9850 and 9860 smartphones straight from our esteemed guests, so you’ll know what to expect when they’re available in stores. Remember, we may have provided the BlackBerry smartphones, but these opinions belong to press, consumers and smartphone users like you! Please don’t hesitate to post a comment of your own and let us know what you think about the new BlackBerry Torch smartphones.

“GREAT DISPLAY – At 480×800 pixels, this is the highest resolution display on a BlackBerry to date. The extra pixels come in handy, especially for web browsing, and the BlackBerry 7 web browser seems to be dialed in pretty good. Very smooth and usable.
FEELS GREAT – I LOVE the feeling of this device in the hand. RIM set out to build a full touchscreen phone that felt great when held both in portrait mode and in landscape mode and they really succeeded here. The sculpted back of the device almost makes it feel like you’re holding a game console controller when in landscape.”

“The hardware itself is very nice, and the first thing that comes to mind when you pick it up is just how light it is. It’s also competitively slim at 11.5mm. This nicest thing about the 9850/60 is that it actually feels new.”

“Honestly I could sit here for days and tell you how fluid these liquid graphics are and how awesome the Open GL gaming is but why write about it when the only way to experience it is to see it.”
