The Blackberry fan that I am, I would love to have this new handset, but will have to wait another year because I am still under contract. However, itâ€™s got great features that many Blackberry owners wished that their phones had.
Although it may not be as fancy as an iPhone or an Android phone, itâ€™s one of the first efforts by RIM to stay cutting edge. They do have the Touch screen Storm on Verizon, but the new Torch will likely be much more popular.
The release date of the Blackberry Torch 9800 is August 12, and it is going to sell for $199 with a 2 year AT&T contract.Â I cannot help but wonder how many customers this new RIM handset will take away from the iPhone?
