It has indeed been a big couple of days for Research In Motion with the news of three brand new mobile phones to hit the market. Today we can confirm that the BlackBerry Torch 9850 is debuting in the USA on Sprint and US Cellular.
The BlackBerry Torch 9850, the CDMA brother to the BlackBerry Torch 9860 phone will be shipping in the states on Sprint and US Cellular sometime soon, but unfortunately a price or release date has yet to be announced by the US carriers but I’m sure it will not be long before we hear word on this.
Due to the excessive BlackBerry activity as of late, do Research In Motion stand a chance of clambering back up to where they once stood, firmly at the top of the smartphone world? You have got to admit, the new handsets ranging from the NFC-enabled BlackBerry Bold 9900 to the QWERTY-free BlackBerry Torch 9860 are a step up from what we have been expecting from RIM as late, but is it really enough?
The BlackBerry Torch 9860 is another smartphone that ships with a “waterfall” screen design measuring 3.7-inches WVGA (800 x 480) touchpanel, five megapxiel “zero-shutter-lag” camera, 720p movie mode, inbuilt GPS and a 1.2GHz processor to boot. The handset also comes with RIM’s latest operating system – OS 7 which should wet the lips of BlackBerry enthusiasts around the US of A, and we can tell you that every single new BlackBerry device that we have seen on show with OS 7 provides excellent speed and performance upgrades compared to that of previous OS builds by RIM.
