Powered by the next-generation BlackBerry OS 7, the BlackBerry Torch 9810 smartphone runs on AT&T's 4G network, which provides broadband speeds up to 4x faster than AT&T's already fast mobile broadband network (learn more below). The Torch 9810 is faster and more fluid than its predecessor with high performance hardware features that help deliver an enhanced multimedia experience.
The BlackBerry Torch 9810 in gray
A powerful 1.2 GHz processor provides smoother multitasking and navigation, fast downloads, and crisp HD 720p video recording via the Torch 9810's 5-megapixel camera. And the integrated Liquid Graphics technology combines a dedicated graphics processor with the main processor for a highly responsive touch interface with incredibly fast and smooth graphics.
Packed full of the latest mobile technologies, the Torch 9810 includes an augmented reality feature that uses the built-in compass (magnetometer) to display over 150 million points of interest, BBM contacts, and more. And BlackBerry's universal search has been amped up in BlackBerry 7 OS. With speech-to-text translation, you can now look for files, e-mail, contacts and music--and even search the web--all without typing a thing.
With BlackBerry, on-the-go productivity is the name of the game. You'll get access to the world-class BlackBerry push messaging service with access to up to 10 supported business and personal e-mail accounts, plus BlackBerry Enterprise Server support for corporate e-mail installations. The DataViz Docs To Go Premium suite is pre-loaded for editing Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint files from anywhere, and you can access BlackBerry App World to download more productivity apps (as well as games and more).
The new BlackBerry browser offers incredibly fast page load times, better web-based gaming, HTML5 video support, and seamless scrolling and zooming. This GPS-enabled phone can also access the AT&T Navigator service for turn-by-turn directions (in addition to using the built-in BlackBerry Maps app). Other features include an 8 GB internal memory, expansion via microSD memory cards (up to 32 GB in size), Bluetooth for hands-free devices and stereo music streaming, 3.5mm stereo headset jack, and up to 6.5 hours of talk time (see full specifications below).
The BlackBerry Torch 9810 weighs 5.68 ounces and measures 4.37 x 2.44 x 0.57 inches. Its 1270 mAh lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 6.5 hours of talk time, and up to 300 hours (12.8 days) of standby time. It runs on the 850/900/1800/1900 MHz GSM/GPRS/EDGE frequencies as well as AT&T's dual-band 4G network (850/1900 MHz; HSPA+/HSDPA/UMTS).
What's in the Box
BlackBerry Torch 9810 handset, rechargeable battery, charger, USB cable, wired stereo headset, polishing cloth, quick start guide
High-resolution 3.2-inch touchscreen display with auto orientation (view larger).
This phone runs on AT&T's dual-band 850/1900 MHz 4G network (UMTS/HSDPA/HSPA+), and with HSPA+ you'll experience mobile data speeds up to 4x faster than ordinary mobile broadband--up to approximately 6 Mbps (download). AT&T has deployed HSPA+ to virtually 100 percent of its mobile broadband network, which enables 4G speeds when combined with enhanced backhaul (via Ethernet or fiber).
Backhaul is one of the major pieces of a telecommunications network. Think of it as the limbs connecting AT&T's cell towers with AT&T's backbone network that provides access to the Internet.
Coming later in 2011, AT&T will deliver a second layer of 4G network called LTE (Long Term Evolution) that is even faster than HSPA+ speeds.
In areas where either AT&T's 3G or 4G network is not available, you'll continue to receive service on the AT&T EDGE network, which offers availability in more than 13,000 US cities and along some 40,000 miles of major highways.
Note: AT&T's 4G mobile broadband coverage is not available in all areas. 4G speeds delivered by HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul; availability increasing with ongoing backhaul deployment.
Optional AT&T Services

You'll be able to find the closes ATM, restaurant, gas station, Wi-Fi hotspot and more with over 10 million business listings.

For all intents and purposes - the Torch 9810 looks NO different than the 9800. If you put them side-by-side, I'm not sure if anyone would be able to tell which is which. That's alright though, since RIM focused on what's really important, and that's the hardware of the phone.
- The processor in the 9810 has been upgraded, same one that's in the Bold 9930 - Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.2 GHz. There's no multi-core functionality or anything like that, but the processor upgrade definitely helps makes the Torch 2 a snappier phone.
- "Liquid Graphics Technology" - the Torch 9810 is touted as having this feature too, along with most of the OS 7 phones. Basically RIM put in a separate graphics processor to handle all the visual stuff, which again, does help make the phone seem more fluid and responsive - but don't think that means you won't see the all-too familiar hourglass. You will at times, just not as often.
- Screen resolution has been bumped up. It used to be 480 x 360, but they've increased it to 640 x 480. I was hoping RIM would jump on the qHD wagon and get some phones with that kind of screen resolution, but it looks like we'll have to wait a bit longer.
- Updated camera software: the camera is still 5 MP, but the zoom was extended from 2X to 4X, and face detection was added to the Torch 2. There is no front-facing camera, so doesn't look like Video Chat will be working anytime soon on a BB phone....
- OS 7: nice OS, browser is once again improved.Read more ›
The browser is quick and loads sites quickly, and half the time they are the full site you'd see on your computer monitor. My only complaint is that the text doesn't re-wrap to fit the screen at each zoom level, but that's really picky.
The battery does very well. With light use I can go a day and a half between charging, and with heavy use it always makes it through an 18 hour (5am-11pm)workday with a bit of charge to spare. The Torch 9800 battery did not last as long.
The screen is gorgeous; pictures, wallpaper, messages, etc. are all crystal clear to the finest details.
The camera's focus is improved over the Torch 9800, and the HD video (720p) recording ability is also much appreciated.
Having 8GB on board memory PLUS the ability to expand with a microSD card is much appreciated. It's more space than I need for my media, but I have lots of room for quick videos of the kittens.
The shape and form is identical to the Torch 9800, just a better screen, double the processor speed, more memory, etc. The same BlackBerry keyboard is there, and that makes typing long messages precisely an easy task. For those who like touch keyboards, the touch keyboard is *much* improved over the 9800. I don't know what happened, but I went from being a very poor touchscreen typist to competing for Mr. Mavis Beacon overnight when I got this phone.Read more ›
