Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and tri-band HSPA 14.4Mbps connectivity options should be included into the mix, as well as Bluetooth 2.1, GPS, and NFC (Near Field Communications).

*3.2-inch VGA 640 x 480 capacitive display
*8GB built-in memory
*5-megapixel camera with flash
*1300 mAh battery

The BlackBerry Torch 2 is expected to arrive in Q3 2011, and It will probably seen AT&T sell the device for $199 when bundled with a new two-year contract.
