Sprint announced their BlackBerry Torch 2 9850 for an August 21st release, and now it’s AT&T’s turn. The BlackBerry Torch 9810 is set to sail on August 21st, alongside Sprint’s 9850, but it’s the phone’s price that might be the most exciting news. An AT&T rep just confirmed to us that for just $49.99 with a two-year contract ($449.99 off-contract), you can have BlackBerry’s flagship touchscreen device running BlackBerry 7 OS. “They aimed for an aggressive pricepoint, and they delivered,” said our own Jon Rettinger upon hearing the news.
As BlackBerry’s first 4G smartphone, the Torch 2 cranks out the following:
