BlackBerry Torch Review

A whole bunch of BlackBerry newness is making its debut on the Torch 9800, which for the moment really sets it apart from other BlackBerry devices on the market. It’s the first and only slider BlackBerry. It’s the first BlackBerry to feature a ‘proper’ touchscreen (no SurePress clicking on the screen required). It’s the first BlackBerry to get the bump up to a 5 megapixel camera. It’s also the first BlackBerry device model to have BlackBerry 6, which ushers in a bunch of new features, including the new WebKit rendering engine” Read more here:

Samsung Galaxy S lands in two more countries, Brazil and China

“Samsung Galaxy S made it to Brazil and it seems that along the way it has picked up a strange appendix pointing from its top. Yup, it’s a digital TV antenna. Unlike the other Galaxy S versions spread around the globe, the Brazilian Galaxy S comes with ISDB-Tb Digital TV on board. Oh, and it’s pretty overpriced.As for the rest of the features, you should be familiar with them since those are common for the Brazilian and the non-Brazilian Galaxy S variants. So, you’ll find the same gorgeous 4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen of WVGA resolution as well as the 5MP autofocus camera on the back which is capable of shooting HD videos (720p@30fps). To refresh your memory, the Galaxy S is powered by a fast 1GHz processor and packs an impressive 1500mAh battery. At its launch the Brazilian version will run Android 2.1 (a.k.a. Eclair) but an official Froyo update should follow up pretty soon. The only downside of the Brazilian Samsung Galaxy S is its price. The SIM-free handset is said to cost good 2400 Brazilian reais (around 1036 euro). Hopefully, the Brazilian operators will offer a better subsidized price at the launch of the phone (some time in September).” via
