BlackBerry device launch dates from Clove

Screen Shot 2011-09-07 at 08.24.37

With three new BlackBerry Smartphones still due for release here in the UK Clove have kindly let us know when they expect to be shipping stock. All three devices are now available to pre-order on the Clove website, although pricing still has to be confirmed.

BlackBerry Torch 9860  – Due 19th September

BlackBerry Torch 9810 – Due 3rd October

BlackBerry Curve 9360 – 3rd October

With the BlackBerry Curve 9360 currently being priced at £249.00 it will be interesting to see how the carriers price the device on PAYG. If they expect similar success compared to the 9300 and 8520 then this price really could do with dropping. Anyway, not long to wait until we can find out.
