BlackBerry Torch Price Drop from AT&T

The first smartphone out of the Research In Motion camp to carry both a touch screen and a physical QWERTY keyboard was of course the BlackBerry Torch 9800 handset, but the device hasn’t really been received that well by the mobile space.

Maybe that is the reason an article over on the Boy Genius Report has it that AT&T has now dropped the price of the RIM BlackBerry 6 toting BlackBerry Torch 9800, probably hoping for more sales at the new lower price.

AT&T has taken the price cutting knife to the BlackBerry Torch to the tune of half its original price tag of $199.99 so after only 3 months of being available the device will now cost you $99.99 based on signing on for a two year agreement.

AT&T dropping the price of the BlackBerry Torch 9800 below the highly likable $100 mark though could well be a shrewd move to pull in early festive season shoppers and before Black Friday kicks off.
