Hi Everyone,

Currently have a 9700 and waiting for Torch to hit Canada. Always been looking for a device that can do more for my business than just email. Tried the Iphone4, pure crap, not sure what all the hype is about, bluetooth never worked and its stressful trying to type lots of emails. Also tried the HTC Desire on Android which smokes the Iphone, nice speed and all around great device. Still having trouble adjusting to the touch screen on typing and considering the Torch even against all the negative feedback.

I don't think I really need the speed of the iphone or android(although nice), rather i require functionality and ability to manage 7 email accounts. Blackberry has always served me well but lacked a good browser and large screen. Social media is also part of my business, ie. Twitter, Facebook.
I'm really liking the ability to read daily news on the HTC via RSS feeds(i think)?

My question is, does the torch have that capability where i can read daily news and it will update regularly as news becomes available? Can I also enter keyword searches for these feeds.

Thanks

John

Wouldn't a better title have been, "Does the Torch have a Searchable RSS Reader"?

Here is a general response: generally, yes.

Viigo was a great great app for my bold 9700, and believe or not was bought by RIM. Sadly to say, I didn't find the "social feed" app which comes with the Torch, to be near as good as Viigo, god knows what RIM did with the intelligence of Viigo....I couldn't find it in the Torch.

I have downloaded/purchased BeReader which I find significantly better and not to be a battery drainer compared to the social feed, again...that's the reader I am using while still hoping that Viigo will be someday, somehow released for the Torch on OS6

Where do I find shortcut keys for Torch? I know where to find it on Bold 9000, from home screen dial and changed to 'NO" then on the homescreen I can press "o" means option and open it. but with Torch, they dont have same home screen dial in menu list. Where is it? Also the green light is continous forever and I wonder what is that? wehre does it come from? how do I turn it off? Pls help.
Many thanks
