T-Mobile USA is another wireless carrier expected to soon add to its offering the BlackBerry Torch 9860 smartphone from Canadian mobile phone maker Research In Motion.

The handset was already launched at various other wireless services providers in North America, and is said to be on its way to Magenta too in the near future.

Back in July, the Blackberry Torch 9860 was spotted at the FCC with AWS bands in tow, which suggested that the device would be on its way to T-Mobile, but nothing was confirmed on the matter until now.

However, it seems that it should not be too long before the wireless carrier would make a formal announcement on the new touch-enabled BlackBerry smartphone, at least this is what leaked documents from the company suggest.

The guys over at TmoNews came up with a series of screenshots of T-Mobile's internal systems which clearly show that the Blackberry Torch 9860 is on its way to Magenta.

Moreover, the Blackberry Curve 9360 smartphone was spotted there as well, and it is the latest handset that RIM unveiled to the world, suggesting that Magenta will soon expand its BlackBerry lineup with appealing and affordable handsets.

Apparently, AT&T had exclusivity on the BlackBerry Torch 9860 for a limited period of time, and T-Mobile was set to launch the new device as soon as the period ended.

For the time being however, there's no telling on whether T-Mobile will indeed have the new BlackBerry smartphones available sooner rather than later, but the leaked documents clearly show that they will be there at some point.

For those out of the loop, we should note that the BlackBerry Torch 9860 was unveiled to the world with a large 3.7-inch touchscreen display on board, a fast 1.2GHz application processor, up to 36GB of storage space (4GB internal), and a 5MP camera on the back, as well as with global connectivity.

You can learn more on the mobile phone and have a better look at it via the hands-on photos and video we came up with during the IFA 2011 show in Berlin.
