BlackBerry Torch 9800: UK Release Date and Price

By Posted 20 Aug 2010, 19:55

If you live in the U.S. you may already have your hands on the BlackBerry Torch 9800, however up until now UK residents have not heard anything in terms of a release date or price.

Well, we now have some news for you, some of it good and some of it bad. The good news is that Expansys has the OS 6 based device on their website, with a release date of October 1st, the bad news is that it is expensive.

If you want to buy the Torch 9800 from eXpansys it has a SIM free price of £569.99, PhonesReview point out that the impressive Samsung Galaxy S is available from eXpansys for just £439.99.

It could be that this price changes when carriers begin offering the Torch, obviously carriers will offer the handset a greatly subsidized price as part of a contract, which could perhaps drive SIM free prices lower.

Do you think the price is too expensive? If not order yours here.

  • Sammi.

    I Was Really Looking Forward To Buying This Phone And Considering It's Only About $200 In America I Thought It Would Roughly Be About £150 Here. Now Seeing The Price There's No Way I'll Be Getting It. That Price Is Ridiculous.
