AT&T BlackBerry Torch 9810 launching on August 21st for $49.99Alex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
And the BlackBerry launch news continues! After Verizon announced availability details for its Bold 9930 and Sprint followed with info on its 9930 and Torch 9850, AT&T has passed along launch information on the Torch 9810. According to AT&T's Facebook page, the new BlackBerry 7-powered slider will be hitting the shelves on August 21st — the same date as Sprint's new BlackBerry launches — for $49.99 with a two-year contract.
Although the Torch slider is no longer the only BlackBerry that features a touchscreen/physical QWERTY form factor, the 9810 still looks like a solid choice for AT&T customers interested in picking up one of RIM's new BlackBerry 7 devices. Not only does it feature a larger display than the Bold 9900, it can be slid together to create a smaller footprint. Plus, AT&T has yet to reveal when it's planning to launch the 9900 save for a vague "later this year" window. So if you've got to get your BlackBerry 7 fix on AT&T ASAP, the 9810 will be the way to go.
