AT&T To Sell Red And White BlackBerry Torch Units Next Month

AT&T knows that users like options, and particularly when shopping for the holiday, colorful options tend to go over well. The new BlackBerry Torch 9800, which remains an AT&T exclusive phone, will soon be available in two extra colors: red and white. We guess red and green would have been the ultimate Christmas combination, but at least red and white will still make for hot sellers long after the holiday season is over.

November 7 marks the day that these two will be on sale, but other than the color change, no other specification changes will be made.
