Whilst Vodafone were quick out of the blocks to announce that they would be getting their hands on the first shipments of BlackBerry Torch 9800 handsets for UK customers, all the other major carriers have so far declined to comment on whether or not they too will supply the smartphone.
However, a quick bit of detective work reveals that O2 look more than likely to get their hands on what RIM are calling their “best BlackBerry ever”. All test units at yesterdays unveiling were running on O2 sim cards, which is surely an indication that the network will later carry the handset.
Also, reports are trickling in that O2 store staff are confirming that the Torch will be hitting their stores sooner rather than later too.
If you’re on an O2 contract, love the Torch but don’t fancy making the jump over to Vodafone it looks like it could be your lucky day then!
