According to a leaked slide, the BlackBerry Torch 9860 will have had a very short lived shelf life. Orange UK plans to put the Torch 9860 in the End of Life (EOL) bin this month. Meaning, you likely will not find one in stores, unless they still have excess stock.
We can’t really blame Orange, since the Torch 9850, 9860 devices barely received any marketing from RIM. So far, the only BlackBerry 7 device we’ve seen get some TV showcasing is the Bold 9900 and Torch 9810 (only because of AT&T). Wave adieu to the 9860.
