DOHA: Starlink, Qatar’s leading communications and media retail and logistics business, has launched BlackBerry’s latest handset, the BlackBerry 9810 (pictured) which is the second generation of the extremely popular Blackberry Torch.
Starlink CEO, Keki Ashburner expressed confidence the BlackBerry 9810 will make an impact in the market and fly off the shelves since BlackBerry smartphones are one of the most popular and fast-selling handsets in Qatar.
Considered as the Blackberry Torch 2, the latest RIM handset is similar in appearance to its predecessor with its QWERTY keyboard design and with a highly responsive, high-resolution touch screen. The similarities however end there as the Torch 2 brings a whole new range of fantastic features to the iconic design.
The 9810 is powered by, BlackBerry7 OS apart from its crystal clear Liquid Graphics, enhanced BlackBerry Browser, voice-activated Universal Search and support for NFC, as well as additional premium personal and productivity apps out of the box.
As well as being more powerful than its predecessor, the Torch 2 supports augmented reality which is a term for a live direct or an indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. As a result, the technology functions by enhancing one’s current perception of reality. By contrast, virtual reality replaces the real world with a simulated one.
The cost of the BlackBerry 9810 at Starlink is QR 2,399.
