Yesterday we reported about the leaked internal document which outed the release date of the BlackBerry Torch 9810, well today we’ve finally got an official announcement from T-Mobile about the phone’s release. The BlackBerry Torch 9810 features a portrait QWERTY slide-out keyboard, a 3.2″ VGA touchscreen display, a 1.2GHz processor, BlackBerry 7 operating system, a rear 5-megapixel camera (720p HD video recording) and HSPA+ connectivity.

However, business users will be able to purchase the phone starting today (November 2nd) to ensure they can get their hands on one before it gets snapped up by everybody else.
