Blackberry Bold 9800 may be called the Torch 9800

We have seen leaks and lots of other information about the Blackberry Bold 9800 Slider already. Back in May, we saw the device in some pics sporting its WebKit browser and Blackberry 6 OS. Some of the images that have been floating around online even have the Bold name printed on the handset.

All of that would lead you to believe that the Bold moniker is a done deal, but apparently, that is not true. Crackberry reports that it has been tipped that RIM may in fact be seriously considering naming the device the Blackberry Torch 9800.

To backup the rumor, RIM has registered the domain and word is that the device is being made down in the Mexican RIM plant with the Torch name emblazoned on it right now. Apparently, the name change is the only question and the device is expected to launch with the same specs already tipped.
