Oh, how the mighty have fallen! Research In Motion (RIM) seem to be on the same boat as that of Nokia, seeing their respective market shares being cannibalized by the growing army of Android smartphone owners, in addition to the hugely popular iPhone from Apple. Well, innovate or perish in this industry, and we do hope that RIM will be able to pull something magical out of their hat after a largely disappointing year without new hardware or great software to accompany their releases. Still, that doesn’t mean RIM is going to throw in the towel – the Canadian company looks set to roll out their BlackBerry Torch 2, also known as the 9810, on AT&T in August.

Interestingly enough, we wonder why the device is listed as the BlackBerry Torch 4G that you see above. After all, the BlackBerry Torch 2 maxes out at HSPA 14.4Mbps, so perhaps AT&T might want to drum up interest by categorizing HSPA+ as 4G just like what other carriers have done.
