BlackBerry fans in Blighty will be pleased to know that Vodafone will be a launch partner for the newly announced Torch 9860 when it lands in these shores.
Unveiled this week alongside the Torch 9810, the 9860 is the first all-touchscreen entry to the Torch line-up and one of five upcoming handsets running the latest BlackBerry 7 operating system.
Sporting a 3.7-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen, the largest yet on a BlackBerry smartie, the 9860 is being billed as a multimedia and gaming powerhouse with a 1.2GHz processor on board to keep things ticking over smoothly.
It is also one of Research In Motion’s slimmest phones yet, measuring a respectable 11.5mm in thickness.
Pricing or release details for the handset have yet to be revealed. However, those of you interested in picking it up on Vodafone can register for updates on its website.
Vodafone also confirmed it will offer the BlackBerry Torch 9810 when it goes on sale in the UK.
Stay tuned as we bring you more gen on the handsets in the weeks to come.
