    When is Rogers announcing this phone today?

    Hopefully it will be available sooner than later in Aug.... Really dislike this "secrecy" regarding phone releases. Drives me nuts.
    ive been pressing refresh on rogers.com/blackberry and redboard.rogers.com all morning at work. i'll post it up when i see it. if i am the first.

    There doesn't appear to be anything on their system for a release based on a so-called senior manager at Rogers.

    as promised: New BlackBerry smartphones coming to Rogers | Rogers RedBoard

    Last night, BlackBerry held an exclusive event called #BB7FanNight to announce the arrival of their new BlackBerry devices: the new Bold 9900, Torch 9860 and the Torch 9810. All three will be joining Rogers lineup this summer and all three are capable of 14.4 Mbps 4G download speeds.

    In addition to a special guest appearance from baseball legend Joe Carter, I also had a chance to catch up with BlackBerry expert, Jeff Gadway to take a look at these new devices and get the low-down on some of the new features and functionality. Video coming soon.

    The Torch 9860 will be Rogers first all-touch BlackBerry smartphone. It runs on BlackBerry 7 OS, has a 5.0MP camera with flash, 720p HD video recording capability and 4GB on-board flash memory. This smartphone will cost $199.99 with select three-year plans.

    For those that can’t live without the full keyboard, you’ll want to check out both the Bold 9900 and the Torch 9810 that come with both touchscreen and full QWERTY keyboard. The Bold 9900 is the thinnest BlackBerry smartphone yet, at only 10.5mm. The Torch 9810 has a large 3.2” high resolution display. Both smartphones run the latest BlackBerry 7 OS and come with 5.0 MP cameras with flash and 720p HD video recording capability. The Bold 9900 will be $249.99 and the Torch 9810 will be $199.99 with select three year plans.

    What do you think of the latest BlackBerry devices?
