Canadian BlackBerry Torch 9800 Launch is Delayed.. Now October 1st. [Updated]

September 17, 2010 | By | 6 Comments

Not quite the news Canadians were hoping for today. Previously all three and half national carriers (Bell, TELUS, Rogers, and Virgin) had announced the BlackBerry Torch would be launching on September 24th, however things appeared to have changed. Bell has now changed their launch date to October 1st, with reports that others are doing the same. The reason behind the small delay is apparently a BlackBerry 6 OS issue that needed to be fixed for launch. The BlackBerry Torch is said to go for $599.99 with no contract or $199.99 with three year contract, according to Bell. No word on pricing from the other carriers as of yet.

So looks like Canadians will have to wait a few extra days before getting their hands on the new BlackBerry Torch.

UPDATE: It looks like Bell, Future Shop, and BestBuy have all changed their BlackBerry Torch ads to “Coming Soon” from October 1st. This could be a bad sign. Stay tuned for updates.
