Crackberry has several sources who claim that the BlackBerry 9800 will launch with a new moniker; the Torch. It was originally thought that the full-QWERTY, slider phone would join the 9000, 9650, and 9700 in the Bold family (for us, putting it in the Storm line would have made more sense). The rumor is further substantiated by the fact that the domain name was registered last April by Research In Motion. What do you think? BlackBerry Torch. You like?
