Late last night we reported that Bell delayed the anticipated launch of the BlackBerry Torch 9800. This was supposed to be available next week on September 24th. We’ve learned more about the reason and are hearing that it’s not just Bell, but all carriers. The reasons are ranging from “production line problems from Rim” to “Network/firmware problems”. Rogers, Virgin, and TELUS have yet to update their site or confirmed the new release date.
Update #1: Virgin has come forth on Twitter that “the BlackBerry Torch is now coming on October 1.”
Update #2: It looks like Bell has changed the date from October 1st to simply sat “Coming Soon”
Update #3:Best Buy has now changed their pre-order page to say “Coming Soon on your choice of network”
