RIM BlackBerry Torch 9800 in pictures

Take a visual tour of RIM's new smartphone

On Tuesday, Research in Motion revealed the Blackberry Torch 9800 - its first handset to ship with Blackberry 6 OS.

It's a desperate attempt to win back potential defectors to iPhone and Android, with a new eye towards consumers, but it just might work. Here's a look at the new Blackberry Torch and the key features of Blackberry 6.

Blackberry Torch basics

The Blackberry Torch has a 3.2inch, 480x360 resolution touch screen. Other specs include more than 1GB of combined RAM/ROM storage, 4GB memory, a 4GB microSD card and 802.11n Wi-Fi.

Slide-out QWERTY

The physical keyboard slides vertically, but unlike the Palm Pre, the bulk of the phone rests in the underside, with the screen sliding up. Is physical keyboard dead? Not if RIM has anything to say about it.
