T-Mobile picks up BlackBerry Torch 9810

If you’re jonesing to get your hands on the latest BlackBerry, than you’d better head over to T-Mobile because the carrier just announced that it will be offering the BlackBerry Torch 9810 with 4G speeds.

The BlackBerry Torch 9810 sports a 3.2-inch TFT VGA capacitive touchscreen, a 1.2 GHz processor, a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 5-megapixel camera that records in 720p HD and of course, it uses the BlackBerry OS7 platform. T-Mobile users with business plans can start preordering this device today and the Torch 9810 will hit the streets Nov. 9 for about $249 with a new, two-year contract.

We’ve reviewed other versions of the BlackBerry Torch 9810 and Simon had some mixed feelings about the device: he liked the hardware and design but felt that the software was still a step behind Android, iOS and Windows Phone. In his conclusion, he said:

Of course, if your needs are modest, and you don’t see them exploding in the near future, the 9810 is a solid, smooth messaging experience while providing the best of both touchscreen and QWERTY keyboard worlds. Of the latest breed of OS 7 BlackBerry devices, I’d pick the 9810 over the others – even the Bold 9900/30, primarily due to the better battery life.
