It hasn’t been announced just yet (we’re expecting that shortly at a New York event today) but the long-rumored BlackBerry Torch (9800) just went live on AT&T’s site offering the opportunity to sign up for a notification when you can buy the thing. Major features include a 5 megapixel cam with flash, full QWERTY on a portrait slide, 802.11n support, and of course: BlackBerry 6 with an all-new browsing experience and a host of other features that should help position RIM within earshot of its less-stodgy rivals. You’ve also got 4GB of storage on-board paired with a 4GB microSD card in the box, 512MB each of ROM and RAM, a quadband 3G radio that will travel well around the globe, a 480 x 360 touchscreen display (same resolution as the Bold 9700) measuring 3.2 inches, the typical optical trackpad down below, and an interesting new Media Sync feature that will let you sync your media library right over WiFi — something various third parties have tried over the years, but has rarely been offered as an out-of-the-box capability. Interested? It’ll hit AT&T and third-party retail locations and websites on the 12th of the month for $199.99 on contract.
