BlackBerry Torch 9810 'coming soon' page arrives on the AT&T website

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 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.

BlackBerry Torch 9810 'coming soon' page arrives on the AT&T website


That's a GOOD question. AT&T had better get the 9900 announced ASAP as well. They might as well, or else it'll just be a bunch of people with unlocked 9900s running on the network :)

Kevin that means you already own the 9900 and smacking your lips at the prospect of it being unleashed on "Crackberry Nation".

I don't really see where you are getting this idea. He doesn't work for RIM, how would he benefit from keeping that from us?

Has no one -- including YOU, Kevin -- been following the discussion in the forums? If you had, you would know that due to a hardware issue, the release of the 9900 has been pushed back to October.

And Engadget users trash-talks about it.
Another way to know they are Apple fanboys.

Anyway, looks pretty good, but I'd look forward to the other phones RIM is planning.

well, we know it's AT&T! nobody else would prove then sell a lie and try to correct it.

stick with your iCrap AT&T!

I want them to at least say they are going to carry the 9900. Then I can wait for them to start to carry it. Then I'll get it.

Ugh! Where is the announcement for the 9900??? I have been waiting for almost two years to upgrade my 9700 to something comparable. I was hoping for the 9780 but ATT passed on it. My husband has the Torch and I don't care for that form factor. So that leaves just the Curve 3G. To me that is a down grade from the 9700. Please ATT just announce you are getting the 9900. Seems like all the other carriers are announcing it why aren't you?

I have the Torch 9800 and after "giving it a chance" for a WHOLE year, I went back to my Bold 9700. So AT&T, pleeeease, pretty please, pretty please with a cherry on top: ANNOUNCE THE 9900 SO WE CAN SLEEP AT NIGHT!!!!!

Did the Crackberry team sleep at all last night? Some great news for RIM! The stock should rebound now. Ahhhh!

This, from "All Things D": AT&T Says Three of RIM’s New BlackBerry Phones Are Headed Its Way.

It only mentions the 9810, but read what you will into which BB's make up the other 2 phones. 9900 has GOT to be one of them.

Well, uh, the article did say what the other 2 models are:

"... a BlackBerry Bold as well as a touchscreen-only Torch model."

I need an eye check up. I could'a sworn I looked at all of the news articles on the front page of CB but I completely missed the one that mentions the AT&T announcement (3 phones). Oh well, I'm not alone.
