The Blackberry Torch, also known as the Blackberry 9800 slider, was unveiled today in New York by RIM. The new Blackberry will compete with the iPhone with touchscreen functionality and a keyboard that slides out of the phone. There are many other features RIM is touting with the new product including integrated social feeds and an enhanced browsing experience.
- BlackBerry is also introducing a new gesture: the “two finger tap.” Users can now make multiple selections (i.e. choose multiple pictures at once).
- The camera will name pictures based on location. You can organize them by location, and search by location.
- RIM has added a podcast feature to let users browse, download, and listen to podcasts–all wirelessly.
- Finally, there’s WiFi music sync: “Beyond the individual songs, you can see your entire library of music on your device and at the same time, browse it, search it, and tag songs for synchronization at a later point in time.”
