We have been hearing rumblings pointing to this but I would still take this rumor with a grain of salt. We have heard from a couple sources that RIM is going to announce two more device in their BlackBerry 7 lineup tomorrow. From what we have been hearing this will be the BlackBerry Torch 9810 (Torch 2 revamp) and the BlackBerry Torch 9850 / 9860 (Full touchscreen no physical keyboard BlackBerry). We have not heard anything about the BlackBerry Curve 9360 but I don’t think that one is fully baked yet.
These announcements couldn’t come soon enough since both of these devices have passed the FCC along with the BlackBerry Bold 9900. From what we are hearing they will start rolling out two weeks after the Bold 9900. That means sometime in late August early September. RIM might also simply be announcing these new BlackBerry 7 devices during their BlackBerry 7 Fan Night event which is happening in Toronto Wednesday night. Abbas from TBreak let us know that he is also hearing the announcement will be at the event.
Either way RIM needs to announce these devices ASAP even if this rumor pans out or not. I am just hoping the launch parties will be in NYC 🙂
