BlackBerry Torch 9810 now official, coming soon to AT&T
Well, what do you know, only hours after getting its own “coming soon” page over at AT&T's webpage and catching many by surprise, the BlackBerry Torch 9810 has been officially unveiled by RIM at the company's media event in London. The announcement lined up seamlessly with the handful of rumors from yesterday suggesting that RIM will be introducing the smartphone along with another member of the BlackBerry lineup – the BlackBerry Torch 9860.

As it was expected, the BlackBerry Torch 9810 adopts the form factor of its predecessor, the Torch 9800, and features an identical portrait sliding QWERTY keyboard. However, the 3.2-inch display of the new smartphone now boasts a resolution of 480 by 640 pixels, which translates into a pixel density of 253 ppi. Furthermore, a new 1.2GHz processor is what ticks under the smartphone's hood, the 5MP camera with flash does 720p HD recording, and we now have an HSPA+ 4G radio inside for fast Internet access on the go. Of course, the ultimate BlackBerry experience will not be achieved without BlackBerry OS 7, which will be running the whole show.

Those of you who are interested in getting the BlackBerry Torch 9810 should look no further than AT&T's shelves as it is the only carrier that will be offering the handset in the US. The smartphone is expected to hit the market later this year, followed by the BlackBerry Torch 9860 and Bold 9900.

Especially with the impending release of the iPhone 4G/5. I wonder how long it will be before the handset gets discounted to $0?

The only devices that have an outside shot to sway me from a Windows 7 Mango in November is this Blackberry or maybe the Pre 3. Will have to give this the once over. Not sure why RIM decided to stick with just one carrier for this bad boy, though.

every carrier has its own blackberry, verizon had the storm, sprint had the style, tmobile had the pearl flip, and att gets the torch. i could be wrong, but thats why im thinking att got this phone, but the next torch will be on other networks
