Blackberry Torch 9850 and Blackberry Bold 9930 Hitting Sprint August 21st



And just like that… Blackberry is back in the game(some would say they never left).

Sprint, everyone’s favorite TRULY unlimited carrier has just been outed as having the new Blackberry Torch 9850 running the new OS7 software available on August 21st. The pricing is $149 on a new two year agreement or $449 if bought outright.

And if that wasn’t enough, Sprint will also be releasing the Blackberry Bold 9930 on the same date of August 21st for $249 on a new two year agreement or $499 if bought outright.

Two stunning devices, one aimed squarely at the business minded and the other aimed at the average consumer, that are sure to bring Blackberry back into mind and market share. Not that Blackberry was doing all that bad. And with specs like 1.2 GHZ processors, NFC tech, mobile hotspot capability and the gorgeous liquid graphics screen tech, these handsets are sure to sell millions and hold Blackberry over quite nicely as they transition to their new QNX platform in 2012.
