T-Mobile let us know that they have made the BlackBerry Torch 9810 official. The new device is already available in an exclusive pre-sale to T-Mobile business customers starting today and will be available to all online and in stores starting November 9th. The Torch 9810 is expected to cost $249.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate card with a 2 year contract. There is no mention of UMA which is interesting… so I doubt it will be included at launch.
