Sprint have made the announcement that the new BlackBerry Torch 9850 and Bold 9930 are coming to their network this week, with both devices being the very first on the network to feature the new BlackBerry OS7 platform. The Bold 9930 is to be the CDMA version of the standard 9930, featuring a 1.2GHz processor, 2.8 inch touchscreen with slide-out QWERTY keyboard and 768MB of dedicated RAM. Sprint will be offering the 9930 for a price of $249.99 when taken alongside a 24 month contract.
The Torch 9850 will also be making its debut on the network, attaching a price of $149.99 alongside a contract and following a $50 mail rebate. Under the hood, the 9850 has a very similar spec lineup to the AT&T 9810 GSM phone that will be for sale for $49.99 with a contract. BlackBerry 7OS will be pre-installed, powered by a 1.2GHz processor and 768MG of RAM.
RIM have also been promoting the fact that both devices are true ‘world phones’ and support global roaming aside from the CDMA radio.
Sprint have also released a statement saying that the new devices will allow their customers to make and receive calls in over 200 countries across the world, while enjoying access to BlackBerry data services in almost 155.
