While RIM is showing off the BlackBerry Bold 9900 they have not said much about the BlackBerry Torch 9810 update or the even more interesting BlackBerry 9850 and 9860. The 9850 and 9860 are the all touch devices that kind of look like the previous Storm devices. We have been hearing rumors that they will be carrying the Torch name even though they don’t have slide out keyboards. Paul from UpdateYourBlackBerry emailed one of his contacts at RIM about the branding and they more or less confirmed that the devices will carry the Torch name even though they resemble the Storm line more. They just want to give it a fresh start.
What do you think they should be called? I want RIM to take on mythology and call it the BlackBerry Zeus or Mars. Who knows what RIM Marketing will do with the name but it looks like they will be called the Torch for now.
