Report CES 2010 - The BlackBerry Torch 9800 retail packaging is small, and as always for BlackBerry, it is matte black. As soon as we open the packaging, the BlackBerry Torch Smartphone is found in a special cut-away. The new BlackBerry Smartphone has a very sleek design. We find about four buttons and an optical joystick underneath the touchscreen. When we slide the phone open, we also see a QWERTY-keyboard next to the touchscreen. This keyboard is comparable to that of the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and it is a bit sunken down. The back of the BlackBerry Smartphone is completely black with a logo, and on top, the lens with flash is found. The sales packaging also contains a data cable, a headset, a charger, a small CD with software and the instruction booklets.
