AT&T and Research In Motion today announced three upcoming 4G handsets that will be added to AT&T's smartphone lineup over the course of the next few months. First is the BlackBerry Torch 9810, an update to last year's 9800. The Torch 9810 is a vertical slider with a 3.2-inch touch screen with "Liquid Graphics" and a portrait QWERTY keyboard. It will run BlackBerry 7 and includes a 1.2GHz processor, 5 megapixel camera with 720p HD video capture, and 8GB of built-in storage. RIM says that the BlackBerry 7 system software is faster, more efficient, and easier to use than BlackBerry 6. It includes a digital compass, support for augmented reality apps, and can surf the web 40% faster than BlackBerries running OS 6. The BlackBerry Torch 9810 will be available later this month for an undisclosed price. AT&T also said that it will offer a 4G version of the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 (previously announced by RIM), and a 4G all-touch BlackBerry called the 9860. All three with be able to access AT&T's HSPA+ 4G network at speeds up to 14.4Mbps, which AT&T says is four times faster than current BlackBerry models.

All these billions, and billions ATT takes in from data revenue and they can't even deploy real HSPA+, HSPA 21, HSPA 42. ATT really isnt any different then they were 3yrs ago. ATT's idea of HSPA+ is a shame.
Blah, blah, blah.... 🙄
They'll have LTE just like VZW (eventually..we can only hope), and when they do, you'll be dropping down to HSPA+ speeds when you're out of an LTE area. On VZW, when you leave an LTE area you'll be dropping all the way down to EVDO...ouch..that's a pr...
It's still plenty fast and fast enough for most people. I agree that their LTE roll out should have been their focus for this year but, for whatever reason, it doesn't seem to be. I remember ATT saying that LTE would be rolled out this year. Now, unle...
