       There is no doubt that blackberry is still a major competitor in the smartphone market, although they are seemingly being left behind by it's competitors due to it's continuous same old features. Although it's competitors have in my opinion left blackberry at the starting line in terms of features that are now so ever demanded by the public in smartphones, like larger and better screen sizes and display for rich and radiant content display, memory, apps and the list goes on, blackberry has still managed to compete. Is it due to customer loyalty, their branding, the taste or a certain liking to their products or is it just for blackberry messenger (BBM) to message friends?
       In Trinidad and Tobago, Blackberry smartphones are like everything to some people. How will I live without it some people ask. Although blackberry smartphones are quite expensive compared to it's competitors they still manage to sell like 'hot bread'. In this post I will be looking at the blackberry torch 9800 which is considered the best of both worlds for blackberry phones since it contains a full QWERTY keyboard as do nearly all blackberry phones have, excepting the 'storm line', and a 360 x 480 pixels, 3.2 inches TFT capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors touch screen.
        Blackberries have never been known for their touchscreen but this phone changes that. Yes my bloggers, you can actually use the 'touch screeen' and not the 'press screen'. Compared to other smartphones, it's screen size is not all that big and it's screen resolution isn't all that, with only 360*480 pixels (ps. the more pixels the better the screens resolution). This blackberry still has it's custom blackberry look wirh a full QWERTY keyboard and Optical trackpad. In terms of memory it has a storage capacity of 4GBs Internal memory and has a slot for expandable memory which requires microSD memory cards, and is compatible with up to 32GB, with which a 4GB card should be  included, but we all know how some businesses operate and sometimes they keep it or charges us for it. It has WiFi features, EDGE and GPRS capabilities for surfing the web. It has a 5 MP camera, which takes photos up to2592х1944 pixels with autofocus and LED flash functions. It runs on blackberry OS 6.0 the predecessor to Balckberry OS 7.0 which is soon to be released, with a 624 MHz processor.
        All things said, the blackberry torch smartphone is a reasonable phone, but for the price it's not worth buying one. In my estimation this phone should be for the maximum price around $400 US dollars unlocked and $2400 TT unlocked prepaid. In Trinidad and Tobago the price for the blackberry torch is around $4500 TT dollars, which is quite unfair and expensive to customers and has nver dropped in terms of price since it became available in Trinidad and Tobago. If you live in Trinidad and want to purchase this phone, it's priced at $4499 TT dollars pre-paid and $3899 post-paid at Digicel and at bmobile it's priced at $4599 TT dollars pre-paid and $4199 TT dolaars post-paid.
       Please leave your comments on this phone and other blackberry phones. Tell me what you guys think. Are they too expensive?
