We first heard rumors of AT&T getting a couple colored BlackBerry Torch models back weeks ago, but this morning AT&T officially confirmed they will be carrying both red and white colored models of the BlackBerry Torch. Both of the new colored Torch’s are expected to be available on November 7th for the same price tag of $199 with two year term.
