Unboxing the BlackBerry 9800 (Torch), part 2
You know I’m not impressed with a device when it takes me 5 days for a full unboxing….
Here are some pictures (slide show) of the BlackBerry 9800 (Torch) to complement my recent videos!
I’ll have a camera review for you in the near future.
You slammed the new Blackberry on the podcast yet admitted to hardly using it. I own a pre, there are things I hated about it when it came out…a month later I didn’t. There are things that took me a month of everyday use to find out that I hated.
I think you should have prefaced your opinion by stating that it was a “first impression.” I’m no Blackberry fan, matter of fact I think they make terrible phones, but I think they deserve a better shot than an hour of your time. It shouldn’t even be able to be called a review unless you’ve used the device exclusively for a couple weeks or more.
I’ve used it extensively since, and I’m keeping with my original verdict.
This device was rushed to the market.
1) Camera performance is lackluster (unusual for a BB) with macro & white balance problems: http://twitpic.com/2e48jq
2) Contact syncing and social media integration (one of the touted features) is buggy: http://twitter.com/tnkgrl/status/21356338905
