AT&T has just announced that it will launch RIM's BlackBerry Torch 9810 in August, and the Bold 9900 and Torch 9860 later this year.
The BlackBerry Torch 9810 will be exclusively available from AT&T this month and will support the carrier fast 4G network.
Torch 9810 4G is among the first to be delivered with BlackBerry 7 OS out-of-the-box, which marks a new milestone in RIM's marketing strategy to limit its losses recorded in the last quarter.
Among the strong points of the latest BlackBerry 7 mobile platform is the next-generation BlackBerry browser, which is significantly faster and offers users a more fluid web browsing experience.
Furthermore, the smartphone comes with Liquid Graphics technology, which allows for a more responsive touch interface with incredibly fast and smooth graphics.
BlackBerry Torch 9810 is equipped with a powerful single core 1.2 GHz processor and packs 8 GB of internal storage, 768 MB RAM, as well as microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
In addition, the slider sports a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash, image stabilization and HD video recording capabilities.
“BlackBerry customers are passionate about their smartphones – and they know to come to AT&T for the best choice. From being the first carrier to offer the BlackBerry solution in 1999 to the broadest lineup of 4G-capable BlackBerry smartphones this year, we’ll continue to offer our customers the leading BlackBerry portfolio in the U.S.” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president, Devices, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets.
More importantly, it looks like the smartphone features NFC (Near Field Communication) support, as well as HSDPA (14.4Mbps) and HSUPA technology.
The phone's 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen display supports 16 million colors and 480 x 640 pixels resolution.
Other highlights of the phone include optical trackpad, proximity sensor for auto turn-off, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP connectivity, as well as GPS with A-GPS support.
