TELUS, Rogers, Bell and Virgin will all be releasing the BlackBerry Torch 9800 on September 24th for what seems to be $199.99 on a 3-year contract. No word yet on the no-contract price. If you want in on this new touchscreen/QWERTY slider you might want to check out Best Buy as they’ve gone live with the option to pre-order.
They state on their website that you can “Be one of the first to own the new BlackBerry Torch, the first BlackBerry slider. To pre-order, visit your local Best Buy Mobile location and provide a $50 deposit, when the phone comes available we will contract you so you can be the fist to experience the Torch.”
Sounds good. Anyone doing this… or will you take your chances on launch day?
