The controversy and mystique around the Canadian launch of the new Blackberry Torch 9800 continues today. It seems that Virgin Mobile (a Bell subsidiary) has listed their outright price for the Torch at $549 which is $50 less than the “Big 3′s” price of $599.
This continues to add fuel to the fire for Canadian consumers as earlier in the week Bell also dropped their contract price from $199/3 year to $179/3 year. Now this is great for customers as they can use these prices as leverage with their own carriers to get a better deal, well as long as these prices stay where they are.
Hopefully we won’t see anymore delays on the Canadian front and we will see Torch’s everywhere within the week! Are any of you with Virgin Mobile?? Will the reduced price make you change your mind about getting a Torch?? Please drop a comment or head over to the Nerdberry Forums and let us know.
