On 1st of October 2010, Research In Motion (RIM) launched its newest Blackberry Torch 9800 at Westin Hotel, Kuala Lumpur..It’s said to be the first launch of BB Torch in the Asia Pacific..
The launch event was pretty posh and I was delighted to be invited under the Maxis10 programme and be part of the first group to witness the launch of BB Torch 9800..
Was there with the few lucky bunch
Like I said, the event was pretty posh and it’s quite an exclusive one, only people from the few telcos, limited media people, and others were VIPs, if not mistaken..

The finger food was great and the drinks were thirst-relieving..
It’s so posh and exclusive and VIP-ish where Datuk Jimmy Choo was there as well..
Stunning performances of Sand Art and a nice piano medley totally got the crowd in mood before DJ Goldfish took the stage with his antics..
Games ala “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” was being played as well where the few selected people were going against each other for a Blackberry Torch 9800!

It was an entertaining game and the winner deserved it..
The Blackberry Torch 9800 is a sweet slide phone with both touchscreen and full Qwerty keyboard functions..I shall talk about the functions when I get the phone in my hands soon!

The event ended with a happy face on me, at least, coz everyone gets a complimentary door gift from RIM by Tiffany & Co..
The gentlemen got a money clipper and the ladies got a jewelry glass case..
