Mobilicity debuts BlackBerry Torch 9810 on its unlimited network

Popular new smartphone rounds out carrier's BlackBerry lineup;
offers large touch display and convenient slide-out keyboard

TORONTO, Nov. 23, 2011 /CNW/ - Giving customers even more choice in touch screen smartphones for use on its affordable, unlimited talk, text and data network, Mobilicity today announced the arrival of the BlackBerry® Torch™ 9810 smartphone.

The BlackBerry Torch 9810 provides smartphone users with the best of both worlds with its large 3.2" high-resolution touch display and slide-out full QWERTY keyboard. Built on the design of the popular BlackBerry Torch 9800, the new smartphone features an upgraded 1.2GHz processor and Liquid Graphics™ technology to deliver a faster, more fluid browsing experience and rich multimedia capabilities. It also features a 5.0 megapixel camera that can record 720p high-definition (HD) video and 8GB of onboard memory and a microSD card slot that supports up to 32GB of additional memory storage.

The smartphone is powered by the new BlackBerry® 7 operating system, designed to deliver the world's best mobile communications experience with a highly refined and integrated suite of phone, email, messaging and social apps to keep users connected and productive throughout the day.

BlackBerry 7 includes an updated Social Feeds (2.0) app to capture updates from media and favourites in one consolidated view. The new Facebook® for BlackBerry smartphones (2.0) app introduces features like Facebook chat and BBM™ integration that makes it easier for users to connect with their Facebook friends in real-time.

BlackBerry 7 also includes a number of other pre-loaded applications and integrated functionality for increased productivity and collaboration right out of the box. The Premium version of Documents To Go is now included free of charge, offering users powerful document editing features as well as a native PDF document viewer. BlackBerry® Protect is also pre-loaded, offering customers the peace of mind that personal data can be backed up and secured in the cloud.  BlackBerry® Balance is now also integrated in BlackBerry 7, allowing users to enjoy the full BlackBerry smartphone experience for both work and personal purposes without compromising the IT department's need for advanced security and IT controls. The popular universal search capability has been enhanced with support for voice-activated search, so users can now simply speak to begin searching their device and the web for information.
