BlackBerry Monza

Video shows off fluid OS 7 BlackBerry’s all-touchscreen Torch 9850/60

BlackBerry fans we got news for you. The device previously known as the BlackBerry Monaco / Monza / Storm 3 / Touch is now officially called the BlackBerry Torch 9850/60. The Torch 9850 is an all-touchscreen BlackBerry that feature RIM’s new BlackBerry 7 OS, and here is one of the first look at the new OS in action in the new yet-to-be-released device.

You get a good feel of how fluid the new OS is as well as the new virtual keyboard layout and its responsiveness. And we have to say, even though we’re not really into BlackBerrys, this new Torch is looking rater good. If all future BlackBerrys perform like this, then RIM might not be in so much of a trouble after all.


Commercials for the two upcoming BlackBerry devices leaked

Commercials for two of BlackBerry’s upcoming devices have been leaked out onto the Internet and along with it their official names. First we have the leaked commercial for the BlackBerry Bold 9900, the first touch-type Bold to come from RIM and the other is the BlackBerry 9860 or what most are referring as the Touch.

Typical to the Bold franchise, the ads suggest the 9900 to be a business-centric device with enhanced entertainment features like gaming. The 9860 on the other hand, is positioned to be a more entertainment-focused device for those who like to play games, watch videos and create content with their device.

Considering these BlackBerry leaks are appearing quite regularly in this few weeks, we’re expecting a big announcement from RIM very soon.


More BlackBerry Touch UI video surface

BlackBerry fans, this is it. A new BlackBerry device is coming this year and it appears that the people at RIM have finally realised that to win more customers, a major redesign of its UI architecture is required. But for BlackBerry, things are more complicated because if the new UI brings with it a completely different user experience, RIM run a very real risk of losing a substantial number of its loyal users who have resisted from jumping onto the iOS or Android bandwagon because of the BlackBerry experience. It’s basic, no frills and when you get the hang of it, BlackBerry devices are pretty easy to use for those who like it.

And so we have this, a new series of videos showcasing the new BlackBerry UI on top of the two videos we posted earlier. We like what we see. The interface is contemporary, looks sleek and puts the BlackBerry brand closer to Android and iOS. Heck, we’re intrigued.

Head on over to after the jump for the videos.
