BlackBerry Torch 9850 with Sprint badge turns up

updated 06:55 pm EDT, Thu July 28, 2011

Slider phone with touchscreen expected in August

More evidence has popped up indicating the Blackberry Torch 9850 may soon be hitting Sprint's shelves. N4BB reports that the RIM smartphone has shown up in some leaked inventory slides. This follows on sightings of the phone in Sprint's CelleBrite point-of-sale system late last month.

The Torch 9850 is both an upgrade and a complement to the original Torch 9800. The touch-only smartphone will have a 480x800 touchscreen display, an improved processor, enhanced graphics, and NFC.

Sprint has not provided any pricing or an official release date, but it is believed to be coming in mid-August.
