AT&T BlackBerry Torch 9810 Coming August 21st for $50
Well, it looks like one carrier was in its right state of mind when pricing RIM’s upcoming BlackBerry 7 devices. With Sprint and Verizon launching the BlackBerry Bold 9930 for $250, it was only a matter of time before we saw some decently priced models running BlackBerry 7 emerge.
On a new two-year contract, you’ll be able to get the HSPA+ enabled Torch 9810 for $50. That’s $100 less than Sprint’s Torch 9850 and $200 less than what the carriers are offering up the Bold 9930 for.
$50 is going to net you a device that has a 640×480-pixel display, 5-megapixel camera that can record 720p HD video, a 1.2GHz processor, and 8GB of storage. AT&T definitely got the pricing right here.
Unfortunately, we still don’t have an official release date or pricing for AT&T’s Bold 9900 so we’re just going to have to wait and see if Ma Bell is going to keep things cheap for that phone as well.
