Motorola Inferno now called Torch, hardware trials begin next week

So it begins! If you’re a BGR reader, you already know that 2009 is going to be the year of the Moto for Verizon Wireless. There are already seven new handsets that we know about coming to Big Red this year and it looks like things are all set for the show to start. We have word from our ninja that the first in line for Verizon might just be the Inferno, now codenamed Torch. Also referred to by some as the Blaze 2 or Krave 2, this puppy is basically Krave ZN4 sequel and Verizon is set to begin hardware trials next week. Word is it might have undergone a few styling changes since the renders above were created – namely the plastic flip may have gone the way of the dinosaur, sorry Star Trek communicator fans – but it should be a nice upgrade. Specs are still scarce but sit tight and we should have something for you soon enough. No, the Torch might not be at the top of your must-have list from the flurry of handsets we scooped back in December but hey, it’s a start.
