BlackBerry Torch 2 smartphone - thumbs up!

I upgraded my original RIM BlackBerry Torch to a new Torch 2 from AT&T.   While not revolutionary, the new Torch has a significantly faster processor (1.2Ghz vs. 624MHz), improved screen resolution (640x480 vs. 480 x 360) and OS 7 - which is really just a maintenance release (e.g. 6.1).  If you're an existing Torch user, you'll definitely want to upgrade but there isn't anything here to convince an iPhone or Android user to jump ship.

Processor: Single core, 1.2 GHz
Screen: 3.2 inch 640x480 touchscreen
Camera: 5 megapixel rear with flash
Form factor: Slider
Ports: Mini-USB
Network: AT&T, 4G (HSPA+)
Weight: 5.68 oz
Memory: 768 MB internal RAM and 8GB built-in memory storage
Operating system: BlackBerry OS7
