RIM, $799 au.black­berry.com ★★★★ When you think of a Black­Berry smart­phone, you un­doubt­edly think of a phone with a key­board. This Black­Berry de­fies its rep­u­ta­tion by ditch­ing those keys for a 3.7-inch (9.4cm) touch­screen. It fea­tures much more grunt, in­clud­ing a 1.2GHz pro­ces­sor and 768MB RAM, 4GB stor­age with space for a mem­ory card and a 5-megapixel cam­era with aut­o­fo­cus that out­shines that of its Bold big brother. The Torch 9860 also uses the lat­est Black­Berry 7 OS soft­ware that makes se­lec­tions seam­less and search­ing easy, and it comes is a form that is slen­der (1.15cm) and nar­row. Un­for­tu­nately, App World still of­fers a lim­ited se­lec­tion and this phone’s me­chan­i­cal but­tons are not as sub­tle as those of its ri­vals.
