Verizon to launch the BlackBerry Torch 9850 soon
Already announced by Sprint (where it’s available since Sunday) and US Cellular (where it should be released tomorrow), the new BlackBerry Torch 9850 is also coming to Verizon – although we don’t know when exactly this will happen. Anyway, the image that you’re seeing below (reportedly a poster spotted in a VZW store) confirms that the largest US mobile carrier is planning to launch the new Torch.
Like all the other RIM smartphones unveiled recently, the Torch 9850 runs BlackBerry OS 7. Its other features include: 3.7 inch WVGA display, GPS, BlackBerry Maps, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, 5MP rear camera with 720p video recording, 1.2GHz processor, 768MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal memory.
Since Sprint is selling the Torch 9850 for $149 on contract (and Walmart for just $99), Verizon’s version of the new smartphone will probably not cost more. We’ll bring you more details as soon as they become available.
In the meantime, the Torch 9850 for Sprint is available for purchase on Amazon.
