RIM acquires Torch Mobile; WebKit-based browser headed to BlackBerry handsets

Wow. That probably sums up everyone at BGR’s initial reaction when we got a heads up that RIM acquired Torch Mobile. Why, might you ask? Well, it goes a lot deeper than this, but all we can see glistening right now are the words “WebKit-based browser”. That would go nicely with some Flash and Silverlight action, eh?

Thanks, Jason!
