FCC hosts BlackBerry Torch 2 9810 before phone heads to AT&T
The usual release of FCC documents reveals that the BlackBerry Torch 2 9810 was just visiting the FCC, and on board the device was the GSM 850 and 1900 bands along with WCDMA bands II and V. This means that the 'Berry with the unique form factor is heading to AT&T. As we reported, the Torch 2 has been vastly improved specs-wise to make the phone a more competitive device.

RIM is no longer considering the Torch as the device that will put it back on track. While there was a time when the Canadian firm had put its hopes on the handset, the original Torch had specs too low to mid-range to compete with the Apple iPhone and Android. Now, RIM is hoping that the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 will save the day. That device, which just made its own trip to the FCC as we told you, takes the form factor of the BlackBerry Bold 9000 and adds a 2.8 inch touchscreen. Installed in the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 is the new BlackBerry 7 OS and a WebKit browser said to be among the elite in the industry, according to RIM.
