Wall Street brokerage firm not impressed with lighting of Torch
The Torch brings a new form factor to RIM as the phone combines a touchscreen with a portrait sliding QWERTY keyboard, answering the prayers of 'Berry fans who were wishing that the manufacturer would produce a touchscreen model with one of RIM's highly praised QWERTY keyboards. At the same time, the handset is the debut of the BlackBerry 6 OS which RIM designed to make BlackBerry models more multimedia capable than in the past. And in a strong effort to close the large lead in browsing that the iPhone 4 and Android devices have over BlackBerry, RIM has introduced its new WebKit browser on the Torch.
Goldman told traders that "that nearly all of the stores they called did not sell out of the device," while the iPhone 4 and Android models like the EVO 4G and DROID X were very hard to find in stock immediately after they were each launched by their respective carrier. An anonymous AT&T employee has told Forbes that the carrier considers the Torch its most significant non-iPhone launch this year.
