Blackberry Torch 9810 Gets AT&T Pricing and Release Date

AT&T Wireless on Monday announced that the Blackberry Torch 9810 with 4G capabilities will officially launch in August. The wireless carrier has given the Research In Motion (RIM) device an official launch date of August 21.

On that date Blackberry fans will be able to pick up the device which features a QWERTY keypad with HSPA+ 4G capabilities, an upgrade from the Torch 9800 which only offers 3G speeds.

The Torch 9810 also comes equipped with a snappy 1.2GHz processor and a 3.2-inch touchscreen display, while users also receive a rather low (by mid-to-high end devices) 8GB onboard memory, while a microSDHC capable card slot allows users to upgrade their memory to 32GB.

Also featured on the device is the BlackBerry 7 OS which helps power the Smartphones 5 megapixel camera with 720p HD video capabilities.

While not the most powerful Smartphone currently available on the market, AT&T is offering the device for a very low $49.99 when customers sign a two-year-contract with data capabilities.

Are you willing to spend $49.99 for a new Blackberry Torch 8910 Smartphone? I think I’ll stick with my iPhone 4 until Blackberry’s OS gives me some real reasons to switch providers.
