    Rumor: T-Mobile Blackberry 9810 Reached End Of Life?


    We are certainly taking this with a grain of salt, but it seems that T-Mobile may have given the BlackBerry Torch 9810 a shorter lifespan than what we expected.

    According to a T-Mobile Customer Care chat transcript found on TMoNews, it would seem that the device had been added to End Of Life as of January 3rd, 2012. That would put the device as being available for merely 8 weeks.

    Now, I know many of you may think this is ridiculous, but please keep this in mind: The BlackBerry Torch 9800/9810 really didn't have much to be able to differentiate between both, & it's quite likely that the lack of Marketing of this updated model didn't provide the sales figures that T-Mobile was expecting.

    Your thoughts?

    This may not be to far off. The guys at my local AT&T store said something similar, basically stating that due to poor sales they were not going to discontinue it. We will see. Its a shame though, I think many people were discouraged to pick up an OS 7 device because of all the negative press that's been going around.

    I have to agree with Blogger, ice2921, it's a real shame T-Mobile has slapped an EOL (End Of Life) status on the BlackBerry Torch 9810, in such little time to let people have the chance to see what this beautiful device is all about.

    In the past, as we all know, the negativity surrounding RIM in the past, has unfortunately pulled the BlackBerry Torch 9810 down with it.

    Let's hope other carrier's don't follow T-Mobile's path, and give the BlackBerry Torch 9810 the chance it deserves.
