The BlackBerry Torch comes feature packed for both professional and regular users. In the past, many of the BlackBerry OS features were limited to professional users and very badly designed. With the introduction of BlackBerry OS 6, the features have been upgraded to meet the demand of a wider audience. The camera with LED flash is still there, similar to the other BlackBerry releases, as well as the instant feeds of information, but there's been massive improvements thanks to BlackBerry OS 6.
One of the most limiting items with the original Blackberries was their abysmal web browser. The original web browser was extremely limited and horrible at rendering pages in their full HTML glory. With BlackBerry OS 6 comes a new browser, a browser that supports full rendering of web pages and has pinch to zoom functionality. The new web browser is easily comparable to the browsers offered on the iPhone and Android OS phones.
The media player has also been upgraded to a much more user friendly version. Offering a screen that's very similar to cover flow, RIM has really upgraded the media player. At times, some MP4 files were unwelcome, but the majority of the time, the BlackBerry Torch was able to process and play the files seamlessly. Another feature point of the BlackBerry Torch and its media player is the wireless syncing feature. It's currently available on Windows only, but it offers the ability to sync media files on a PC to your BlackBerry Torch wirelessly. The results are a mixed bag, as there are times where the syncing is inconsistent.
The application store isn't as up to speed as Android OS or iOS, and surprisingly many of the applications aren't backwards compatible. This is a big setback for the BlackBerry Torch.
