The 5Mp camera includes an exceptionally bright LED flash, autofocus, image stabilisation, geotagging, face detection and a variety of scene modes, including macro. In terms of spec it’s mostly the same as the last version, but while it would have been nice to see some advance, the camera’s still no slouch, starting up quickly and delivering decent quality pics, even when you’re on the move.
The Torch 9810 also now offers 720p HD video recording and this looks crisp and smooth for the most part, with autofocus and image stabilisation carried over from the stills camera.

Blackberry's recend ads push "Touch. Type. Together", which is what the Palm Pre and its successors did well.
The playbook, and likely BB's future QNX based phones, have a copy of webOS's cards.
And here, they're launching a portrait slider.
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, the original Palm/webOS team should be feeling very flattered ;-)
What a fetid P.O.S. it truly is
I've had one recently and when I quit swearing at it I can swear at RIM for the job they've done with this fecal done.
It is past useless with a horribly inconsistently behaving OS, it will work for days, then not for minutes to hours.
My favourite is I try to dial an international number, E.G. +1 415 555 1212 an it will decide with NO warning to call 01415 555 1212 and I get to annoy someone when least expecting it.
Given this week's RIM Job of how not to run a data service, I'm clicking on my company webpages right now to order an iPhone 4s.
I've had enough of this carp platform, and OS.
BB's New Feature
Sometimes ON Email....
Come on RIM, you realy have to do better or is this all a ploy to get bought by MS?
Have you tried to enter a password on one of these? Unlike with most mobiles you never get to view what you actually typed - not even for a couple of seconds. I can assure you - however 'easy' this keyboard might be according to the sales literature it will take on average 5 attempts to enter any even vaguely tricky password.
I've also had it tell me corporate emails are sent only to find they got sent 'en masse' several days later.
