On AT&T and wondering when they would break silence on the yet to be official BlackBerry Torch 2 (9810)? Right now is as good a time as any, as you can see from the image above AT&T has gone ahead and made the device live on their site so that folks can sign up to find out more info closer to when the device is set to release. Needless to say, we're waiting on something official here from RIM given that AT&T just blew whatever cover the device had left.
For those you out there who scoff at the 4G branding that's bound to appear on some of these new BlackBerry 7 devices, keep in mind that carriers like AT&T get away with it by associating these types of statements/disclaimers:
*4G speeds delivered by HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul. Available in limited areas. Availability increasing with ongoing backhaul deployment. Learn more at att.com/network. 4G used in connection with the BlackBerry Torch 9810 product name refers to the fact that the Torch 9810 is capable of operating on AT&T's HSPA+ network with enhanced backhaul described herein.
If you like the form factor of the original Torch, the new Torch will keep the feel intact but torches the specs of the original 9800. Everything the original Torch was arguably lacking the new 9810 has: faster processor (1.2GHz, more memory, HD video recording and of course BlackBerry 7). There's no official pricing or release date info yet, but we're sure that's coming soon. In the meantime you can sign up for email updates on the AT&T website, or better yet, just keep it locked to CrackBerry and we'll fill you in on all the details as they emerge. More pics can be found after the break.
