BlackBerry Device Roadmap for the US
After compiling some leaked and rumored data about RIM's new line of devices, we have come up with a small roadmap of possible future release dates.
The first thing you will notice when looking at the roadmap, is the Torch 2 9810. It seems that AT&T has lost its Torch exclusivity, because you can see T-Mobile will be launching the device. Do you think this because AT&T has the the exclusivity or just because AT&T is going to be buying T-Mobile??
The second thing you will notice is the possibility that all devices will be out on the marketing by Black Friday. This will be key for the carriers sales and work great for the holiday season if it works out this way.
For those that do not know, there is going be two BlackBerry Torch’s the 9810 full QWERTY keypad and the Full touch 9850/60. The full touch will be replacing the BlackBerry Storm line up. Having two types of Torch devices, one with sliding keypad and one full touch is silly and for another topic, however if you would like please comment on this below.
BlackBerry Torch 2 9810 (Touch with slide full QWERTY keypad):
- AT&T in September
- T-Mobile in November
BlackBerry Torch 2 Full Touch 9850/60 (Will be CDMA ONLY at this time):
- Sprint by November
- Verizon by November
BlackBerry Bold 9900:

- Sprint in August
- T-Mobile in August
BlackBerry Curve 9360
