Amazon cut the BlackBerry Torch in half

Of course they didn’t literally cut it: don’t be silly. Amazon are now listing the latest-and-greatest BlackBerry — the slideriffic Torch 9800 — for a measly $99.99 with two year contract.

That’s half price! A full $100 less than what AT&T stores want for it! No matter which way you spin it, that’s a bargain.

The Torch is the only handset in the world running BlackBerry’s spankin’ new OS 6, with it’s all-new, much-overdue webkit-based browser, and other multimedia improvements.

So whaddaya waitin’ for!?

Update: looks like it’s been a hundy since launch, so it wasn’t really a price cut in any way. Why would anyone buy it for $200?
