New BlackBerry Smartphones: 9860 Video Demonstration

The smartphone market is one that is very hot, many different people are trying to find out every miniscule piece of information about the Apple iPhone 5 as humanly possible but there are a number of other manufacturers on the scene too. Now we have heard about the new BlackBerry smartphones so we thought you should know some of the details they hold.

Firstly the BlackBerry Torch 9810, it has a 1.2GHz single core processor, 8GB of internal memory and a 3.2-inch 600×480 touchscreen at 246DPI. It also has decent 5 megapixel camera which has image stabilization, HD video recording, and facial detection. Not only that but it runs on the new BlackBerry 7 OS and it looks like it will be launched on AT&T, shame it’s not hitting Verizon. You can read more about it over at the official BlackBerry blog.

Next up we have the BlackBerry 9850/9860 device. This BlackBerry has the largest screen yet to be seen on from the manufacturers at 3.7-inches and it’s also a full touch phone, again the first of its kind from BlackBerry. The resolution of the screen is 800×480 at 253DPI which is perfect for viewing the photos that you have just taken on your 5 megapixel rear facing camera. It has 768 MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory however there’s a microSD card slot that’s expandable to 32GB.

Something that seems to be spoken a lot about quite a lot around the web by people who work with the BlackBerry is the concept of “Liquid Graphics” and the use of BB7, their new OS. Crackberry has added to YouTube a brilliant clip where they are getting a demonstration and video walkthrough of the Torch 9860 to really see what it can do. It would also seem that they are really pushing things with BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) and adding things like game invitations and chat with people in game, this is something we haven’t seen too much in smartphones.

As someone who isn’t normally into the BlackBerry devices the 9860 has found some appeal in my mind. They look to have tried to pull in all of the things that their existing users like and combine it with what Apple and different manufacturers are doing on their smartphones with the large touchscreen. Not only that but I was particularly impressed with the few seconds that they showed us of the BlackBerry media player, it looked clean, crisp and like a genuinely good experience.
