Of course there are always slight possibilities of shipping delays, inventory etc… but this is the second time that the August 15th release date for the upcoming TELUS BlackBerry Torch 9810 and Torch 9860 has shown up. Still no word on what price points TELUS will be launching these new OS 7 devices for, probably expect the no-contract prices to be around the same as Rogers… just 1-week away now!

More soon!
(Thanks tipster!)

    Additional proof? I never said I didn’t believe you.

    • Dimitri

      They are not talking about you. Nothing here is about you.

  • JSmith

    9860..YES PLEASE! Goodbye my beloved Storm 2..youve served me well these many years.

    • TheDeysion

      and you didn’t trade it for another BB thats better? shocking

    • JSmith

      @TheDeysion..why trade in a perfectly good working Storm 2 for another BB? Big screen, solid device, never had any issues with it. It still works great and looks like it did the day I bought it.

  • Peacenik

    Yawn. Wake me up when the iPhone 5 is announced.

  • Brian

    Yawn. More BlackBerry snooze fest

    I was in a Rogers Wireless store yesterday and they already had a model of the Torch 9810. It’s the same as the Torch 9800 really, just an ugly colour and more under the hood. :P I’m waiting for QNX, I mean the Playbook is awesome.
