Software update for the BlackBerry Torch 9800 dishes up some speed improvements
AT&T customers holding onto their next generation BlackBerry Torch 9800 since its initial launch will be happy to know that a software update is now available for the smartphone.

Essentially, it's the latest version of BlackBerry OS 6 for the handset and packs along specific things regarding speed improvements – which can be witnessed through a host of applications and functions. Specifically, web pages will load faster now and the speed of panning within a page is greatly improved. From launching to closing, and even exiting apps, everything as a whole is improved and more responsive. Additionally, there are smoother transitions and rendering on the home screen – so getting to the most important things on your device will be even quicker.

If you cant' wait for the update to hit your handset, you can simply visit either AT&T or RIM to fetch yourself the software update.

Just updated my Torch to OS6 - packet 695 - took about 60 minutes from start to finish! The update has improved speed, transitions, and reduced lag in opening / closing apps. No problems and recommend the update to any Torch user asap.

Why is the Blackberry Torch 9800 volume so low. Is there any way the volume can be adjusted. When on speaker you have to hold the phone close to your ears, that's not the way the speaker should work.
