BlackBerry Torch 9850 currently slated to hit Sprint in August?Alex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Earlier this month, a photo of a Sprint inventory sheet revealed that the BlackBerry Bold 9930 and Torch 9850 (aka Monaco) would both be heading to the Now Network. The document showed that, while the 9930 is slated to arrive on August 21st, the 9850's release date had yet to be determined. Today an updated version of that inventory sheet was posted by the folks over at CrackBerry, and it's revealed that the Torch 9850 is currently slated to arrive alongside its Bold brother on August 21st. One other quick note about the 9850: CrackBerry is reporting that the device may not end up launching with those physical navigation keys that we saw last month.
As always, it's necessary to mention that rumored/leaked launch dates can and do change, so don't go circling August 21st on your calendar just yet (unless you do it in pencil, which you could erase later on). Not only that, but it'd be kind of surprising to see Sprint launch two high-end BlackBerrys on the same day, so don't be shocked if only one of these two devices ends up actually launching on August 21st. At least it looks like a pretty safe bet that Sprint's getting both the Bold 9930 and the Torch 9850, though, right?
