CB just reported that some other carriers have announced they will be carrying the 9800 Torch:

Bell - The new BlackBerry® Torch™ 9800 smartphone with BlackBerry® 6 will be coming this fall to Bell Mobility. And because apps work best on the best network, Bell clients will enjoy using the BlackBerry 9800 Torch to access impressive mobile services from Bell like TV, radio, Remote PVR, Visual Voicemail, GPS Navigator and more. We will keep you posted with more details as we get closer to availability.

Rogers - You may have seen Research in Motion’s announcement this morning unveiling the much-anticipated BlackBerry Torch 9800. We’re excited to tell you we will carry this stylish smartphone as part of our BlackBerry lineup in the coming weeks.

TELUS - The new BlackBerry Torch 9800 with BlackBerry 6 will be coming from TELUS this year. we’ll keep you posted with more details as we get closer to launch on our network.

Virgin Mobile - new smartphone update! the blackberry torch 9800 with blackberry 6 is coming soon.

I've also heard that Vodafone UK has it on their site as well.

Bell operate a HSDPA network as well as their CDMA network.
So you can use a 3G GSM blackberry with them

We deploy Sprint devices where a work as we as Nextel, AT&T and Verizon.

Typically, devices are 1-2 years behind AT&T for new equipment.

Dunno why.

NO! Verizon has the Storm. There has never been a BB touchscreen on Sprint's network.

It's not available yet to buy, they have a pre-registration page up but Vodafone is definitely getting it.

It wasn't on their main consumer website, nor in the "coming soon" devices pages when I looked, at that time.
