Sprint’s BlackBerry Bold 9930 and Torch 9850 discounted at Walmart
As you’ve probably already heard, Sprint will launch two new RIM smartphones tomorrow, August 21: the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9930 (already available at Verizon), and the BlackBerry Torch 9850. The carrier will officially sell the Bold 9930 for $249.99, and the Torch 9850 for $149.99 – both prices requiring new 2-yr contract agreements.
Right now, the handsets can only be pre-ordered, but they will likely be shipped starting tomorrow.
While the Bold 9930 will probably turn out to be one of RIM’s best smartphones ever, the Torch 9850 seems to be a disappointment (or at least that’s what early reviews suggest – for example, This is my next gave the 9850 a 5.5 out of 10, arguing that it is an “interesting device”, and yet it can’t be “recommended over any of the other BlackBerrys on the markett”).
