If you’re looking to get your hands on the new Blackberry Torch 9810 from other sources such as eBay or perhaps Craigslist, you may want to make sure that the Torch that is being sold is a legitimate copy and that the seller is someone, whom at the very least seems trustworthy as it seems that a warehouse in Mississauga, Ontario, was broken into and 2,700 Blackberry Torch 9810’s were stolen.
The devices are said to be worth about $1.1 million according to the police, and while at the moment no suspects have been identified, the identification and PIN numbers of the stolen Blackberries have been recorded. Just a heads up – it’s illegal to be found in possession of a stolen smartphone, and it’s considered a crime. If you wish the ugliness of a trial, much like the one that followed the whole stolen iPhone 4 fiasco, then perhaps you may want to stay away from suspiciously cheap Blackberry Torch 9810s for now.
