Preview: BlackBerry Torch Smartphone

Wired: Preview – BlackBerry Torch Smartphone

Designed to compete with the Apple iPhone and popular Google Android-based devices, BlackBerry Torch is aimed at a broader market than the platform’s traditional business market, but will doubtless find an audience there too.

“BlackBerry maker Research In Motion unveiled a new smartphone Tuesday that offers iPhone-like features to “crackberry” addicts — while adding a few unique touches.

The BlackBerry Torch is targeted at general consumers rather than BlackBerry’s traditional base of business users. It includes an updated version of the BlackBerry operating system, called OS 6. The phone will be available Aug. 12 for $200 with a two-year contract on the AT&T network.”
