BlackBerry Torch 10000 Existence Confirmed by Phone Insurer Asurion
Research in Motion is preparing to leave the 4 digit naming pattern behind, if we’re to believe a recent leak of the BlackBerry Torch 10000 model. This device appeared in the system of handset insurer Asurion, a company that has relations with all the major carriers and inside access to all the important roadmaps. This company lists the Torch 10000 as available on AT&T.
The listing comes via an advanced search dropdown menu, but keep in mind that there are no search results when the 10000 is selected as a filter. It’s not yet clear what design this model will adopt and if it will be a full touchscreen phone or QWERTY slider. We’re expecting a flagship here, a device that looks like BlackBerry London, the famous QNX phone that was detailed by The Verge and sported an original design.
That model was supposed to pack a 1.5GHz dual core CPU, 8MP camera and a very thin chassis, so I have similar expectations from the Torch 10000, to be honest. There should be at least a 5MP camera, dual core CPU and decent resolution on this model. A cool thing to note is that the Asurion advanced search filter has an entry for the iPhone 5 as well, so the guys might be on to something here…
