BlackBerry Torch 9810 dummy models make their way into T-Mobile storesAlex Wagner - Senior News Editor
The original BlackBerry Torch 9800 was an AT&T-exclusive device when it launched last year, and it remains that way to this day, but it doesn't look we're going to be able to say the same about that device's successor. A leaked T-Mobile roadmap from earlier this month revealed that the Torch 9810 would soon be making its way to Magenta's shelves, and now our friends at TmoNews have received a set of photos showing that dummy models for the BlackBerry 7-powered slider have begun infiltrating at least one T-Mobile store. Peep a couple more shots of the 9810 dummy below.
For those of you that'd like a quick spec refresher, the Torch 9810 is packing a 3.2-inch 640x480 touchscreen, 1.2GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera, 720p HD video capture, 768MB RAM, and the BlackBerry 7 OS. The aforementioned leaked roadmap pegged the 9810 as launching on November 9th, though we always caution that unofficial release dates can and often do change, so I wouldn't go taking the 9th off work just yet. That said, the appearance of these dummy models in a T-Mobile store suggests that the phone's launch is indeed getting close. Stay tuned!
