Web browsing on the BlackBerry Torch 9800

IMG_0495 We have been waiting for a new web browser on BlackBerry for a long time and praise the lord it is here at last. At the BlackBerry press event I had the chance to have a play and as you can see things have improved immensely.

Whether you use the onscreen keyboard or the hardware one, finding what you want on the BlackBerry Torch browser is a piece of cake. It is so much faster as you will see in the below video. I couldn’t get pinch to zoon to work, although I was told it does, but even so the browser looked great. Pages were quick to render (remember that has a lot of content) but tapping to zoom worked perfectly and the text re flow is a huge bonus. Tabbed browsing is also present which can be found in the menu and while I am on the subject I must say how nice it is to scroll the menu without being in fear of clicking the screen like on the Storm and Storm2.

Personally I can see no need for me to grab my iPhone4 for web browsing if I had a BlackBerry Torch.
