AT&T has spilled the official beans on the device that's been doing the rumour rounds labelled as the BlackBerry Torch 2; the BlackBerry Torch 9810 - the first 4G AT&T RIM handset.

The Torch 9810 is the successor to the original Torch (the 9800), bringing not only the 4G connectivity but a much more nippy processor - up from the 624MHz one to a 1.2GHz one - and a much crisper display: 3.25-inch with a 640x480 resolution.

Running BlackBerry OS 7 it also packs 8GB of onboard storage, which is expandable up to 32GB, and it can also shoot 720p HD video.

Pocket-lint's news hunter-gatherer is at an exclusive London event with BlackBerry this morning (3 August) so be sure to check back later for more RIM-goodness - we're hoping to hear more about the Monza 9860 as well.
