BlackBerry Torch 9800 (touch screen plus slider)

The BlackBerry Torch 9800 is the first BlackBerry that will combine the best of both worlds: a touch screen plus a hardware QWERTY keyboard that slides out. We all knew this was coming. The Torch is a slider. That's right, this is the first BlackBerry slider (and I doubt that it will be the last). The Torch combines some of the best features found on the Storm with the rest of the BlackBerry family of smartphones.

The Torch is 0.57" thick and it has a 3.2" touch screen display.  How much memory does it have? 512 MB flash memory / 512 MB SDRAM. The Torch uses the same 624-MHz Marvell processor that's found in the BlackBerry Bold.

Here in the United States, the Torch will be a GSM smartphone that will be offered on the AT&T network. So, if your hospital infrastructure is set up so that you're limited to the BlackBerry line of smartphones, then go with the Torch 9800. If I had to get a BlackBerry today, this is the one I'd get.
