Blackberry’s debut in the smartphones market has been eagerly awaited by many consumers across the globe. This is mainly due to the reason that Blackberry manufactures products for its business class consumers. This has resulted in a huge gap for Blackberry to be developing its QWERTY keyboard phones in comparison to touch screen iPhones. In order to bridge this gap Blackberry has introduced the Torch that has a slide cover, offering a touch screen and a QWERTY keypad.

Blackberry Torch is available for a price of $199 for a two year contract on AT@T networks.
