It may be a few months late to the BlackBerry Torch party, but T-Mobile announced today that it's finally getting its own BlackBerry Torch 9810.

We first saw this updated vertical slider model this past summer for AT&T . The BlackBerry smartphone runs BlackBerry OS 7, and hooks into T-Mobile's "4G" HSPA+ network.

RIM's signature QWERTY keyboard finds a home on the Torch 9810, along with a 1.2 GHz processor, petite 3.2-inch touch screen, a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, and support for 720p HD video capture and playback.

Also characteristic of BlackBerry, secure corporate e-mail, BlackBerry Messenger, and the BlackBerry App World are key selling points. The phone comes in zinc gray.

T-Mobile will offer the Torch 9810 to business customers first in a presale, starting today, before opening sales to everyone on November 9. The smartphone will cost $249.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate, and with a two-year service agreement.
