The Torch, you will recall, looks like a second cousin for HP's Palm Pre smartphone that was released back in mid-2009. Those interested in the Torch, and yes, it is available in red, should head over to the AT&T Wireless website.
The price cut on the Torch, while unexpected by me, isn't too surprising. Interest in the new slider BlackBerry hasn't exactly lit the fire that RIM was hoping for. As for pricing the PlayBook below the Wi-Fi Apple iPad's $499 price tag, well, I think that anyone releasing a table in the next 12 months is looking for something, anything, that might resonate with consumers and get them to purchase their product verses and iPad.
