Just like we heard before, the new BlackBerry Torch 9850 is headed to US Cellular. Today, the carrier has decided to make this official, and thankfully it didn’t hold off any important details such as the release date or pricing information.
So, the new Torch 9850 will be available from US Cellular both in stores as well as online starting on August 26 (that’s a couple of days from now, on Friday). The price being asked will be $199.99 (after a $100 mail-in rebate) with a new two-year contract. If you switch to US Cellular from another carrier before September 8, you’ll receive $100 credit.
The BlackBerry Torch 9850 has a 3.7-inch 480×800 touchscreen, a 1.2 GHz processor, 5 MP camera with 720p HD video recording, and 4 GB of internal storage space. It runs the new BlackBerry OS 7.
