Yep. I believe it will. I have noticed after about wk or so of owning Torch the touch started lagging just a tad. I hadn't done a battery pull since owning it n decided to do one. Made a huge difference in speed with the touch! But like any other bb I'm sure the updates will continue to smooth things out!

Its just going to come down to how long it takes for them to come out with updates, unofficial or official ones. Especially when you take Rogers... they take forever to release anything. I'm still waiting for an official OS5 for my phone... (unless it came out and i missed it!)
RIM will have to update the OS to fix some pretty obvious bugs. I guarantee most will get fixed. I can't guarantee how soon so I traded mine in, but I'll be back when I get on here and everyone's talking about the bugs being fixed. It will happen.
I am hoping that OS6 speed will improve most... I am underwhelmed by the processor of the Torch, given that it's now all shiny and transparent-y and swipe-y... all of those graphical shenanigans require a pretty robust processor... so I hope that RIM in their "keep device COGs (cost of goods) low" wisdom will further enhance the performance of the OS.
To be honest as launches go, the 9800 and OS6 didn't do so badly given it's a new devices and sort-of-new OS.
I think in technical terms the launch was pretty smooth, it was just in sales and PR it didn't fare well.
I wouldn't be concerned about some of the stuff but I suspect there will always be some laggyness with the device running different apps given the extra requirements the new OS place on it and the older tech. I suspect the worst offenders like slow wake up will be cured though.
