The good: The RIM BlackBerry Torch 9810 has a sharp, colorful, and responsive touch screen along with a full slide-out keyboard. BlackBerry OS 7 promises support for augmented-reality apps, voice-activated universal search, a new Liquid Graphics technology, an improved Web browser, and more. Other upgrades include a 1.2GHz processor and 720p HD video recording. It's very affordable.

The bad: The BlackBerry Torch 9810's design is very similar to its predecessor, with the same feature set as before.

The bottom line: The BlackBerry Torch 9810 won't wow newcomers with its tired old design, but its affordable price and much-improved specs should keep BlackBerry enthusiasts satisfied.
