BlackBerry Torch 9860 and 9810 and Curve 9360 dates outed on Clove

Those of you who have been waiting patiently to get one of the new BlackBerry Torches or the super svelte Curve 9360 rejoice; ye now have a number of dates to jot down in your filofaxes.

The BlackBerry Torch 9860, the one which eschews a Qwerty in favour of a 3.7-inch touchscreen, will be arriving on Monday the 26th 19th of September for those pre-ordering now.

The Torch 9810, which features a slide-out Qwerty tucked ‘neath a 3.2-inch touchscreen and is due a week later on the 3rd of October. The BlackBerry Curve 9360 will also be arriving on the 3rd of October.

Clove is pricing the Torch 9860 at £349.00 and the Torch 9810 at £399.00. The new Curve 9360 is priced at the lower £249.00, fitting in with the Curve mid-range ethos.

All three phones run BlackBerry OS 7, the latest iteration of the OS, and feature the new Liquid Graphics interface. This promises a slicker look that’s equally at home on touch and non-touch BlackBerry phones, providing a more uniform experience between devices.

This is something we’ve definitely seen during our hands on time with these phones; bar variations in general operating speed, the overall experience is more or less the same on the Torch 9810 as it is on the Curve 9360.

Update: Clove got back to us to reiterate that the release date for the BlackBerry Torch 9860 is actually Monday the 19th of September. We’ve updated the piece accordingly.
