Recent T-Mobile roadmap leak also shows an inbound BlackBerry Torch 9810 for November 9th
Android fanatics surely got their helping of good news after a recent T-Mobile roadmap was leaked showing plenty of Android smartphones on the horizon for the carrier, but interestingly enough, there’s also a new BlackBerry in store for them as well.

Looking at the leaked roadmap, there is a tiny image tucked away in the bottom right corner that shows a distinguishable BlackBerry Torch 9810, which so happens to be listed as the ‘Dumoine’. Already, T-Mobile carries both the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and the recent Curve 9360 on its lineup, but now that it looks like they’re adding a portrait QWERTY slider, things are really beginning to shape up in terms of their current generation BlackBerry portfolio.

As it stands, we can potentially see the handset arriving on November 9th according to the leaked roadmap, then again, it can always change. In either case, it’ll make a nice mid-range offering, as it’ll sit perfectly in between T-Mobile’s current offerings.

Finally!!! The only reason I didn't buy this phone before was because it was only available on AT&T, and I'm never switching to them. I'm so happy I can finally get a decent sized touch screen AND a keyboard. Also happy RIM didn't listen to the idiots who keep talking about portrait keyboards being "behind the times" whatever the eff that means. Landscape keyboards require both hands to hold/use and waste so much space

Oh tmo tmo tmo, no wonder you're behind the pack. You don't listen to all customers. NOT EVERYONE WANTS AN android phone! Tmo need to look in the mirror and say "why are the cheap plans not attracting customers?"

Noticed this on the earlier posting for the Roadmap. If Blackberry is losing market share, it is not due to carrier support. Each carrier has at least two OS7 Blackberry offerings, some as many as three now. I only WISH Windows Phones had this kind of support.

the 9810 is the most popular from what I see in NY no one wants to pay 299 or 199 for a ugly phone when you can get a cool lookin 4ishG Torch
