More evidence hinting that Verizon is getting its share of BlackBerry smartphones
That Verizon is about to add the BlackBerry Bold 9930 to its portfolio of smartphones is not much of a secret. After all, that leaked overview video from not long ago pretty much confirmed that the device is headed to Big Red's shelves, and if that is not enough of an evidence for you, that screen grab from Verizon's internal system shows that the carrier is already getting its staff familiar with the handset. However, we were informed that the Bold 9930 may not be the only 'Berry that Verizon is getting ready to launch.

Thanks to a tip that was kindly sent to us, we now have a reason to believe that Verizon will be offering the BlackBerry Torch 9850 as well. Word comes from an anonymous Verizon employee, which informed us that a full touchscreen BlackBerry Torch smartphone was introduced at a recent company training. According to our tipster, the device will feature a faster web browser, all-in-one media player, single social networking feed and “liquid graphics” for smooth scrolling while navigating through the interface.

When will the BlackBerry Torch 9850 and Bold 9930 land in Verizon's outlets, however, is still unclear as neither of the two was mentioned in that leaked Verizon roadmap from not long ago. Anyone thinking about getting their hands on one of them?

Thanks, you know who you are!
