For BlackBerry users in the UK waiting to get their hands on the Torch 9800, your wait is almost over. By the looks of things, Vodafone UK has put up their Torch 9800 pre-order page for all to see. To get started with your pre-order, all you need to do is click the ‘Select & view plans’ button.
Plans for the 9800 at Vodafone start at £20 per month, and work their way up to £50 per month for the most inclusive plan (which includes 3000 minutes of talk time, unlimited texts, 500 MB of data, for 24 months). It should be noted, that if you go for the £40 or £50 monthly plan, your Torch is free. If you signup for the £20, £25 or £30 plan, the device will cost you £399, £299 and £199 respectively. All contract terms are for a 2-year period.
Besides the obvious goodness packed into BlackBerry 6 (RIM’s new OS that comes on-board the Torch), there’s the obvious newness of the vertical slider form factor, luscious full QWERTY keyboard, 5 megapixel ‘zero shutter’ camera, touchscreen display, 624 MHz processor, WiFi, GPS, 512 MB of RAM and much, much more.
For all of the details, head over to Vodafone UK… and to all of our friends in the UK, is their a BlackBerry Torch 9800 in your future plans?
