Please Login to Remove!

For those waiting for the red and white Torches to become free on Amazon, they are now.

White: AmazonWireless: BlackBerry Torch 9800 Phone, White (AT&T)

Red: AmazonWireless: BlackBerry Torch 9800 Phone, Red (AT&T)


Does anyone have numbers on how well the red and white Torches are selling relative to the black one?

After buying a Torch via Amazon for
$99.99 six weeks ago, ...I can't help wondering about the economics, Amazon and/or RIM and/or ATT and/or otherwise, behind this now (!?) free-to-much cheaper offer of what seems to me as a truly awesome phone that must not be cheap to have produced? I do realize that competition with iPhone4 and android OS phones may have something to do with it, and that ATT may very well be making up the sum with its scale and the contract offer -- anyone have any additional insight as to this dumping, clearinghouse or ??? of the Torch onto the market?

Price of device is set by ATT at corporate stores. Amazon set its own price. They are subsidized they make up the cost during the term of your contract they hope
