    BlackBerry Torch 9800 Officially Launching on Sept. 24th via Rogers

    The BlackBerry Torch 9800 has been resting on AT&T shelves for a few weeks and now Canadians can bank on an official release date from Rogers. That date is September 24th for $199.99 on a 3 year plan. This is about two weeks later than the Futureshop images showing the 15th as a release date.

    Below is a video which has BlackBerry's Director of Marketing, Michael McDowell, being interviewed about some of the changes with the new device.

    Typical Canadian pricing....you can shoot over to the States and get a Torch for 99 dollars, a few bucks more and it's unlocked. Here in Canada, everyone needs to get their 100% markup and the consumer gets screwed.

    That said, we'll all pay the money because, afterall, we're Canadian...just don't screw with Timmie's or the beer. :haha::haha::haha::haha:

    What i really don't understand.
    There is a lot of talk about the dissapointing sales for the new torch in america (only about 150K+ devices sold), while here in Europe (i am in the Netherlands) the blackberry sales are skyhigh and the new devices with OS 6 are much anticipated.
    Why is RIM not hurrying up with getting those devices over on this side of the ocean?
    Here in The Netherlands we have the same GSM and 3G networks, so we do not need the CDMA devices.
    So, are there any other reasons known, why RIM has not come up with a time-table in which there are planning to launch the new 9800 Torch?
