RIM to Announce Two BlackBerry Torch Models Tomorrow? Wednesday?

BlackBerry 7 OS

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 :)

  1. I don’t mean to be negative, but I’m past getting my hopes up.

  2. About time, glad to hear that. The recent announcements have been true so if this one’s no less, I might reconsider…bigger screen, same processor…decisions decisions

  3. Wow, just in time before they go out of buisiness. Two “new” BB’s, that are acually going to turn out to be more of the same old ones slightly warmed over. Just earth shattering news!

  4. The only device wednesday night will be the 9900. They’ll show it off again and talk up OS 7. Nothing new will be announced. Sorry for the disappointing news

  5. Personally I’m more hyped for the Bold 9900. From the day I first touch the Bold 9000 I wanted a device with the Bold 9000’s form factor, but with a touch screen and at long last RIM has made it!!! Can’t wait!

    Still I want to see what RIM does with the new Torch(s).

  6. Seeing is believing right now! so whenever they choose announce it.

  7. New Blackberries are Canada’s Yeti

  8. Any update on the announcements.

  9. I luv em blackberries

  10. I’m must say thou, The OS7 is pretty heavy!
