Blackberry 'Torch' Smartphone Running BlackBerry 6 OS

Research in Motion Launches 'Torch' Smartphone and BlackBerry 6 OS. I wasn't overly impressed with the video of the BB OS6, and I'm beyond the need for a physical keyboard, but the phone looks pretty nice. Much better than the old blue brick I used to have to carry around for sure! I like the social and communications features for sure, and I know that for people the BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) is a huge selling point, especially if you have friends with BBM as well. The os (there's a preview video on the linked page) is OK, it looks a bit like the iPhone OS, but without some of the "soul", though that might be the rendering in the video.
