Leaked poster shows off a Verizon branded BlackBerry Torch 9850
Even to this day, Verizon customers are still having a difficult time trying to rinse out the sour taste left in their mouths after checking out the original BlackBerry Storm, which was surprisingly at one point deemed as an iPhone killer. As the story goes, Verizon managed to appease some people with their second try with the handset, but it still left some people desiring for more.

Well folks, we know that Big Red is advertising the BlackBerry Bold 9930 as the carrier’s most prestigious BlackBerry so far, but for those eying Sprint’s all touch BlackBerry Torch 9850, they might be surprised to know that Verizon might be getting it soon as well. As we near the inevitable availability of the Bold 9930 in Verizon stores nationwide, we’re presented with a leaked poster displaying that third attempt at the all touch form factor. Already, one Verizon store apparently has the poster up showing the carrier’s branding on what appears to be the Touch 9850.

Granted that some are still simmering over the original Storm, we’re sure that they’ll be pleasantly impressed with RIM’s take with the Torch 9850. So far, we haven’t heard anything in regards to a Verizon Torch 9850, but seeing the handset in this poster, you can’t help but think that we’ll certainly be seeing it very shortly.

I was just in a store and one of the guys brought out the wrong accessories for my new 9930 Work Bold, He brought out 9850 Accessories, I was like... Oh cool Verizon's getting the Torch... and he was like... Oh wow I guess so. So they are getting it. Probably soon too since they have accessories for it in store already.

Interesting how Sprint has both the 9930 and 9850 in their stores before VZW has them. @digicon, if memory serves, the buttons on the 9850 are slightly rounded and raised a tiny bit above the surrounding material (plastic?). I doubt the 9850 that is presently available on Sprint is any different from the 9850 that will be available on VZW.
