Verizon is going to launch the BlackBerry Torch 9850 soon, that much we already know. But when? Well, thanks to a leaked screengrab of a Verizon internal system, we now know.
The BlackBerry Torch 9850 is the CDMA version of the successor to the failed Storm series. The Torch 9850, like its GSM-based brother, the 9860, is a smartphone that comes without a physical QWERTY keyboard. Its main feature is probably the 3.7-inch touchscreen.
Verizon is set to start selling the BlackBerry Torch 9850 on September 8 via Direct Fulfillment (read:Web and phone sales), and the phone will be in Big Red’s stores on September 15, so one week later.
The touchscreen that the Torch 9850 comes with has a resolution of 480×800, and the phone also comes with a 1.2 GHz processor, 768 MB of RAM, a 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video capture, and 4 GB of built-in storage. It will run the new BlackBerry OS 7.
No word yet on Verizon’s pricing for this device, but we’ll let you know as soon as we find out.
