Research In Motion Ltd. (RIM) on Wednesday unveiled five new BlackBerry phones with touch screens, as it hopes to revive the line’s dwindling appeal in the face of competition from the iPhone and Android smart-phones.

The number keys are seamless and our fingers found it hard to differentiate between “1” and “2”.
