It’s the battle of the 2 flagship products; Apple with their #1 product, the iPhone Version 4 and RIM’s latest masterpiece, the Blackberry Torch 9800.
For the last few years Apple have dominated the market with their iPhone series, and have a history of creating great products built upon a great platform. RIM first attempted to fight Apple with the release and subsequent semi-failure of the Blackberry Storm and later on, the Storm2. The Storm’s biggest failing was it’s touchscreen, which while plenty advanced was simply not as good as the iPhones from a regular users point of view. In other words, nobody wanted it.
Enter the RIM Blackberry Torch 9800, which brings with it the revolutionary new Blackberry 6 OS. More importantly, the new Blackberry has a capacitive touchscreen, meaning it can not just compete with the iPhone’s screen, it can actually challenge it! The Torch isn’t just another touchscreen smartphone though; once you slide it, it becomes a full querty keypad to appeal to the more traditional Blackberry users!
So, which of these 2 touchscreen smartphones is the best?
Knowyourmobile.com has released a fantastic review of these 2 smartphones, and the results are quite fascninating. From the article…
The iPhone is definitely suited to Apple fanbois, where the BlackBerry Torch could be battling for the Android market, or just those who want something different.
If RIM places advertising in the correct place and networks offer better deals than the iPhone, Apple could be looking at the next revolution right there.

Torch or iPhone… I think regardless of which you buy you would be winning. The Torch most definitely looks like a truly great product that could put a dent in the iPhone market.
