Blackberry Torch is a good piece of gadget. The phone comes with a 3.2″ WVGA touchscreen with 480×360 pixel resolution, a 512MB internal flash memory with 4GB storage, a 5-Megapixel camera and runs on the new Blackberry OS 6. However, Research in Motion does not seem to have sold too many handsets. You will remember that in mid-August this year, Amazon announced a major drop in prices selling the phone at $99 instead of the regular $199 price point. Now, three months later, network carrier AT&T too has announced a similar price drop.
Starting now, Blackberry Torch will be available for $99.99 at the AT&T stores. While this is indicative of the lackluster performance of the Blackberry model, this is in no way an indication of the model being a flop. It is worth noting that the holiday shopping season is just around the corner and AT&T would be pretty keen to stock the best of gadgets during this period to maximize their sales. It is then logical that the company is looking at emptying its stocks of Blackberry Torch well on time to begin the sale of these new gadgets
