New BlackBerry Smartphone launching in India tomorrow , Torch 9860 ?


RIM is launching yet another BlackBerry smartphone in India tomorrow going by the invite we have received. Our bets are on the  Torch 9860 (BlackBerry Storm 3) which was unveiled few weeks back . The phone is expected to hit stores at around Rs.29500 within the next few days according to our sources.The 9860 is a full touch BlackBerry running the OS 7 and powered by a 1.2 GHz Processor.The Storm had a SurePress keyboard which drew a lot of criticism and the company has done away with even the Storm name and adopted the Torch branding. The Torch 9810 and Bold 9900 are already available in India.  The 9860 has already been launched in many countries in the Middle East.
