T-Mobile Leak Suggests BlackBerry Torch 9860 Arrival

Now that Verizon has confirmed its plans for the BlackBerry Torch 9850, the smartphone has a solid home on CDMA networks in the US. What about its presence on the big GSM-based carriers, as the Torch 9860? AT&T announced its plans for the phone back at the beginning of August, but things have been much quieter over at T-Mobile. Now we’re starting to see signs that the carrier might pick up the 9860 after all, thanks to a newly-leaked screenshot.

This info comes courtesy of a webform T-Mobile uses to process smartphone trade-ins. There, under the list of possible BlackBerry models a customer may be upgrading to, is the Torch 9860.

Now, this is hardly bulletproof confirmation that we’ll see the phone on T-Mobile – and it doesn’t give us any sense of just when the carrier might start selling the Torch 9860 – but it’s definitely a sign pointing in that direction.

Also included in the list is the BlackBerry Curve 9360, which we’ve already heard rumored for a T-Mobile release. That model will supposedly go up for sale next week, on September 14.
