When BlackBerry launches a new mobile phone, Pocket-lint is never that far behind and as such we've already got our hands on the new device just moments after it's launched, and before its even got an operator in the UK. 

As we revealed a short while ago, via AT&Ts leak, the BlackBerry Torch is a cross between a BlackBerry Bold and a Palm Pre Plus. It sports the new BlackBerry 6 operating system, comes with QWERTY keyboard and features a touch screen as well. 

The tech specs are as we expected, but are now officially confirmed as:

Full-QWERTY keyboard and large touch screen display
- High resolution capacitive touch screen (480 x 360 pixels, 3.2-inch diagonal measurement) with accelerometer
- HSDPA support (3.6 Mbps)
- Built-in GPS and Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n)
- 5 MP camera with flash, autofocus, digital zoom, face recognition
- 512 MB Flash, 4 GB onboard memory, microSDHC memory card slot (up to 32 GB)
- 624 MHz processor
- BlackBerry 6, the impressive new operating system for BlackBerry smartphones which includes:
- Crisp, more immersive visuals, including new icons, graphics and animations
- New WebKit-based browser; high-fidelity and very efficient, with tabbed browsing
- Multi-touch support (e.g. pinch to zoom) while browsing, viewing photos, etc.
- Graphical, context-sensitive pop-up menus

RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
