BlackBerry Torch 9800 is now only $99.99 from AT&T
The BlackBerry Torch 9800 is currently RIM’s flagship device and the first one to have launched running the new BlackBerry OS 6. Yet its sales in the US are reportedly underwhelming, so much so in fact that they surprised even an AT&T exec.
In what probably is a (late) move to address its measly sales, AT&T has cut the Torch’s price in half. Whereas before it would set you back the standard (for a high-end device) $199.99, it’s now down to $99.99 in your choice of three colors.
Of course, this price still requires a 2-year service agreement, but it does make the Torch a very compelling offer, at least for BlackBerry fans/addicts. Getting the top of the line handset from RIM for half the price that competing high-end devices go for sure sounds good enough.
