AT&T Shows Off Basket of BlackBerry Devices

Paul Lilly

AT&T is giddy as all get-out to unveil its latest BlackBerry devices from Research In Motion (RIM), never mind the fact that the smartphone world is currently infatuated with Android and iOS. Nevertheless, for those that prefer a sweet BlackBerry over an Apple or Google powered smartphone, AT&T wants you to know it has the broadest BlackBerry portfolio out of any wireless carrier.

Included in the basket of BlackBerry smartphones are three 4G models -- the Bold 9900, the all-touch Torch 9860, and the previously released Torch 9810, which was the first 4G BlackBerry smartphone from AT&T.

In addition to these, AT&T is getting ready to release the new BlackBerry Curve 9360 with a 2.44-inch high resolution display, 5MP camera with flash and video recording, QWERTY keyboard, 512MB of RAM, 512MB of internal storage, 800MHz processor, and other odds and ends.

Getting back to the 4G devices, the Bold 9900 is the thinnest BlackBerry smartphone ever at just 10.5mm. It has a 2.8-inch touchscreen display, 1.2GHz processor, 768MB of RAM, 8GB of onboard memory (expandable up to 40GB with a 32GB media card), QWERTY keyboard, HD video recording, and dual-band Wi-Fi.

The Torch 9860 is similarly spec'd, but minus the QWERTY keyboard and with a larger 3.7-inch display. This one will be available online November 6 for $100 with a two-year contract. The BlackBerry Bold 9900 will be available online and in stores on the same day for $200, while the Curve 9360 will hit the Web and stores on November 20 for just $30.
