Blackberry Torch torn down and dissected

  • A dedicated team of Crackberry addicts has already managed to tear down and dissect RIM's flagship Blackberry Torch 9800 smartphone.

    The delicate procedure - conducted by the folks at Crackberry - reveals how the sliding mechanism works and where RIM's engineering geeks placed the (fully-functioning) antenna.

    "With all the attention given to attenuation these days you may be curious to see what the Torch's design looks like (hint: it's like a bumper that attaches to the board) and we have that photos of that too," explained Crackberry's Kevin Michaluk.

    "[Yes], tear down posts of a new smartphone don't normally happen until the new device is available for commercial purchase and somebody is crazy enough to sacrifice it to the tech gods.

    "[But] in the case of the BlackBerry Torch 9800, however, we've already got the goods and nobody had to risk their phone."
