We’re not done, folks! In addition to getting some hands-on time with the BlackBerry Touch (Monaco / Monza) and the BlackBerry Bold Touch, we’re back at it again with an exclusive hands-on with the BlackBerry Torch 2. This is really what the original Torch should have been; instead of an underpowered, under-spec’d handset, the Torch 2 really offers a great experience from what we have seen so far. Physically, the unit is identical to the original Torch with the same physical dimensions, though the internal changes are pretty massive — at least, relative to the original Torch. The 640 x 480-pixel display looks absolutely great on the BlackBerry Torch 2, and with a 1.2GHz CPU paired with OS 6.1, this thing could light a fire. We are told that the BlackBerry Torch 2 is tracking for a July release on AT&T, with an announcement at Blackberry World in May, of course. Check out the rest of our BlackBerry Torch 2 photos in our hands-on gallery!
