BlackBerry Torch 2 9810 gets updated virtual keyboard courtesy of new OS
Other changes include moving the shift key and putting it on both sides of the QWERTY, and eliminating the instant internet key while replacing it with a dedicated question mark key. A dedicated comma button replaces the period key which has been moved. This new layout is not only expected for the BlackBerry Torch 2 9810, but most likely for the Torch 2 9850/60 as well.
Chalk it up as another part of the effort by RIM to bolster the BlackBerry Torch by making the sequel more competitive to the Apple iPhone and Android handsets. Besides the new virtual QWERTY, most of the specs of the device have been improved as we reported. Will this all be enough to make the Torch 2 a desirable smartphone?
