BlackBerry Torch 2 and Touch/Volt launches imminent

Leaked photography and Facebook hints add up to two BlackBerry touchscreen handsets, possibly

Oh, BlackBerry, you big teases. First you knock out a casual update on Facebook asking us, “What’s shiny, new and social all over?” Then you go and let official-looking pics of your two alleged new handsets out of the bag marked “top secret”. It looks very much to us like you might have a pair of phones – and we venture they’ll be the BlackBerry Torch 2 and Touch or Volt (the likely names of the Storm evolution) – ripe for release.

For those of you who insist on model numbers, the Torch 2 will be the 9810 and the Touch/Volt will be the 9860. Pocketnow, which uncovered the snaps you see here, reckons we’ll be in for 1.2GHz processors all round and, unsurprisingly, BlackBerry’s OS 7. Hopefully, we can remove all doubt in a matter of hours. Until then, there’s still time to pre-order a Bold 9900.
