It’s the world’s first smartphone to combine a BlackBerry® keyboard with a full touch screen experience and the first to feature the new BlackBerry® 6.

Digicel Bermuda CEO, Wayne Caines, said: “Digicel prides itself on making sure that our customers have access to the latest in innovation and technology and we are delighted to announce the addition of the BlackBerry Torch to our wide range of handsets.

“Our customers rely on us to ensure that they remain at the cutting edge of technology and – through our suite of competitive price plans – they also get the best value for their money.

“Now we’re giving more people than ever before the chance to join the BlackBerry revolution.  We expect to have the device available for sale in our stores next week and we will announce our pricing at the same time.”

The new BlackBerry Torch features a large touch screen and optical trackpad with a backlit slide-out BlackBerry keyboard. It also supports the latest generation in Wi-Fi® (b/g/n) connectivity and its 5 MP camera takes exceptional pictures with continuous auto focus, image stabilisation, scene modes and zoom, and supports video recording.

In addition, it comes with a combined 8 GB of media storage out-of-the-box, and includes a microSD/SDHD memory card slot for up to 36 GB of additional memory.

The BlackBerry Torch is the first to launch with BlackBerry 6, a new operating system for BlackBerry smartphones. It features a redesigned interface, and a new and rich WebKit-based browser that renders HTML web pages (as well as HTML email) quickly for a great browsing experience.

The browser includes tabs for accessing multiple sites simultaneously, pinch to zoom, and an auto-wrap text zoom feature that can intelligently wrap text in a column while maintaining the placement of a page’s key elements (simply by double-tapping on the BlackBerry Torch).
