Original Post: DiGi has tweeted that the BlackBerry Torch will be offered from as low as RM999 tomorrow, 11 November! This is valid only for the first 300 customers which the details have yet to be revealed. Will it be another BlackBerry Torch fire sale at an undisclosed location? Or is it for those who pre-register before? We won’t know until tomorrow, perhaps at midnight tonight. We believe DiGi will offer that price bundled together with its DG Smart Plan.

DiGi is the third telco in Malaysia to offer the BlackBerry Torch after Celcom and Maxis which had revealed theirs couple of weeks ago. Celcom’s RRP for the Torch is at RM2188 while Maxis offers it at RM2299. Let’s see if DiGi can offer it lower.
