RIM Unveils Two New Faster BlackBerry Torch Devices

blackberry torchResearch In Motion on Wednesday introduces two more powerful versions of its touchscreen device called BlackBerry Torch, with an intention to buy time until it can launch a completely new software package in its smartphones.

The new handsets, along with a Bold upgrade was introduced previously, and they are the crucial part of what the Canadian company called its biggest global launch yet as it is seeking to recover North American market share losses from Apple’s (AAPL.O) iconic iPhone in addition to a slew of devices which are running on Google’s (GOOG.O) Android software.

Investors have reacted positively, raising RIM’s deflated stock price up 3 percent.

“RIM’s new BlackBerry smartphones could well be the most important devices in the Canadian smart device vendor’s history, following a recent slowdown in device shipments, staff cuts and doubts over the company’s strategy and leadership,” Ovum analyst Tony Cripps said.
