AT&T to launch BlackBerry Bold 9900, Torch 9860 on Nov. 6; Curve 9360 on Nov. 20

AT&T on Tuesday announced that it will launch three new BlackBerry 7 smartphones next week. The carrier’s BlackBerry Bold 9900 will finally arrive on November 6th for $199.99, $100 less than T-Mobile’s version of the sleek smartphone. AT&T will also launch the full-touchscreen BlackBerry Torch 9860 for $99.99 on the same day, and the entry-level BlackBerry Curve 9360 will become available for $29.99 beginning November 20th. “Our BlackBerry enthusiasts will welcome these three new BlackBerry smartphones to AT&T’s premium smartphone lineup – the new BlackBerry Bold 9900, all-touch Torch 9860 and Curve 9360,” AT&T SVP Jeff Bradley said in a statement. “From new and improved versions of BlackBerry classics to AT&T’s first-all touch BlackBerry smartphone as well as 4G models, our leading suite of BlackBerry smartphones has something for everyone – government, business and everyday consumers – at the best prices available in the market.” AT&T’s full press release follows below.

AT&T's leaked fall and winter roadmap full of Android, Mango and BlackBerry

AT&T’s purported fall and winter roadmap was recently leaked by Pocketnow and there are a number of devices to get excited about. The Samsung Kupua and HTC Bunyip, two Windows Phone Mango devices, will make their debut during the fourth quarter and will each pack an 8-megapixel camera and an 800 x 480-pixel display. RIM’s full-touchscreen Torch 9860 is also due out during the fourth quarter. It offers an 800 x 480-pixel display, a 1.2GHz processor and a 5-megapixel camera. AT&T will launch a handful of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) devices, too, including the Pantech Nulu, the Samsung Singa SGH-i777, the Huawei Jengu, the Motorola Fuath MB862 (possibly the LTE-packing ATRIX 2), the Pantech Onza and the Samsung Gidim SH-i927. Finally, RIM’s freshly announced Curve 9360 will hit AT&T store shelves in time for the holidays. More →

Bell BlackBerry lineup leaked: Torch 9810, Bold 9900, Torch 9860, Curve 9360 landing soon

BlackBerry fans on Bell won’t have to wait long for a new Torch, Bold, or Curve. TechFIBE picked up some leaked documentation that suggests the carrier will sell the new phones — which we leaked in April — in just a few months. Specifically, Bell will launch the BlackBerry Torch 9810, BlackBerry Bold 9900, and the full-touchscreen BlackBerry Torch 9860 in late August, followed by the BlackBerry Curve 9360 launch in September. BGR reported this past May that the Monaco 9850 and Monza 9860 could launch under a new “Volt” banner or the BlackBerry Torch brand, and according to this document it looks like RIM may have gone with the latter. Bell also confirms what we already knew: that the Torch 9810, Bold 9900, and Torch 9860 will all offer 1.2GHz processors, while the Curve 9360 will be powered by a slower 800MHz chip. More →
