Research in Motion attempted to make a video in an effort to promote its touchscreen-enabled BlackBerry Torch 9850 handset, but instead the BlackBerry-maker ended up featuring a touchscreen handset from one of its rivals running a rival operating system. Rather than featuring the BlackBerry Torch, the device’s all-touchscreen BlackBerry 7 operating system, and the ease of use of the new hardware-software combination, Research in Motion had featured an HTC-made Android handset with HTC Sense UI on top, as seen with the Android home button and the Sense keyboard. The video has subsequently been pulled, but the faux-pas definitely does not look good when RIM cannot even distinguish its own handsets when trying to promote it.
