RIM acquires Torch Mobile and confirms new browser plans

While RIM’s newsroom hasn’t yet confirmed the deal, Torch Mobile’s site has already posted the news that they have been acquired by RIM.

Torch Mobile is the company that makes the WebKit-based browser Iris.

While RIM has been getting a lot of criticism regarding their browser, a WebKit-based browser could go a long way towards appeasing consumers and rounding out the whole BlackBerry experience.

So when is this happening? If BlackBerry Cool had to guess, it will come with the next generation devices, which will arrive in fall of 2010.
