T-Mobile's BlackBerry Torch 9810 is arriving on November 9 for $249.99 - pre-sales are available now
Without hesitation, T-Mobile officially announced today the upcoming availability of the BlackBerry Torch 9810, which will go on sale nationwide through T-Mobile retail stores and select dealers starting on November 9th. However, if you happen to be a T-Mobile business customer, you can take advantage of the exclusive pre-sale promotion that’s happen today, November 2nd.
Strangely, T-Mobile is asking $249.99 for the smartphone after a $50 mail-in-rebate – with your signature on a 2-year agreement. Yes, it’s indeed on the pricey side, but then again, it’s not something new seeing that they currently sell the BlackBerry Bold 9900 for the staggering price of $299.99 on-contract.

249.99 should be the no contract price for this junk phone, LOL.

I can get a SGS2 Skyrocket on AT&T with LTE, Dual Core, Super Amoled and 1080P Camera for $249. No BB should be over $99. Their hardware is SO outdated.

I agree! What is BB doing? Is there even a need for BB anymore?

I am going to just put out my prediction: either Google or Microsoft is going to buyout Blackberry. Probably Microsoft since they use to build more business oriented phones.

With Google buying Motorola, MS grabbing BB makes more sense. If they are interested, and if RIM drops enough to be a steal.
I think it is more likely that the two guys who run RIM and do not realize it is no longer 2003 get ousted, a new CEO takes over and RIM adopts a software partner.

Im surprised those 2 guys haven't been outed yet. The board must really love those guys.
