In yet another BlackBerry Torch 2 hands-on, the 9810’s 5 megapixel camera has been given a whirl to see how well it captures 720p video. There’s also a bunch of hands-on impressions, mainly glowing over the 3.2-inch 640 x 480 touchscreen’s responsiveness.
The form factor is more or less identical otherwise, but packs a 1.2 GHz processor, 768 MB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage plus microSD card, NFC, Wi-Fi b/g/n with mobile hotspot, GPS, and HSPA+ connectivity, at least based on what we’ve seen in leaked spec sheets.
The video quality is decent, and autofocus seems to have a decent time catching up. Of course, the problem with any camera on a phone is stability, so don’t expect to be shooting any award-winning movies on this or anything. The Torch 2 9810 certainly doesn’t look like much has changed from the original 9800, but the bump in specs and OS overhaul is exactly what RIM needs to tide themselves over until multi-core QNX-based smartphones are ready to go.
Anyway, here’s the sample. If you’re really hankering to get your hands on one, we’re expecting the 9810 to land on AT&T sometime this summer.
