RIM acquires Torch Mobile; WebKit-based browser headed to BlackBerry handsets : Boy Genius Report.

Huge news for BlackBerry users who were/are/continue to be frustrated by the browser.  When I attended the BB Developers conference last year, the Browser Sessions were always the most packed.   Clearly the browser could be/should be/needs to be improved and RIM is doing something about it.

I look forward to seeing what comes out of this acquisition and seems to align with the overall strategy of RIM to have a vastly improved browser by Summer 2010.  Maybe to align with LTE deployment of Verizon? hmmmm
