The long-awaited BlackBerry Bold Touch, officially named the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 is now available on Verizon.
First shown off at BlackBerry World earlier this year, the BlackBerry Bold 9900 made quite a splash when it was unveiled. Marrying touchscreen functionality with that must-have BlackBerry keyboard, the Bold 9900 (the CDMA version is the 9930) boasts the best of both worlds. RIM officially announced the phone at the beginning of this month and promised availability starting at the end of this month. However, here we are, barely half-way through August, and the 9930 has already hit Verizon.
A new report is claiming that Research in Motion is planning to launch a new breed of BlackBerry device next year.
A new BlackBerry rumor was posted by Boy Genius Report citing “sources” that the Canada-based smartphone maker Research in Motion is now testing a new BlackBerry phone, only this time, will be sprinkled by the QNX’s technology.
According to the article, Research in Motion is still on its intention to maintain the company’s good smartphone battery life public image, and wants its new devices to stay the same — and the report has concluded that the QNX-based BlackBerry phone named “Colt” will still sport a good battery life because the company’s early tests are using single-core processor only.
The rebirth of RIM is almost upon us. Last week Rogers announced their 3-year price plans for the upcoming BlackBerry Bold 9900, Torch 9860 and Torch 9810. The Bold 9900 came in at $249.99 while both the 9810 and 9860 hit the $199.99 mark. A few days ago we revealed the complete price plans for the Bold 9810, no-term cost came in at $549.99 and was $50 less for each of the other yearly contracts. Images have now surfaced online from CrackBerry that shows the complete price plans for the 9900 and the 9860. Also, the 9810 doc looks like it’ll come two colours, grey (chrome) and a white version.

T-Mobile USA to offer BlackBerry Bold 9900 for $300? More expensive than dual-core Android smartphones?
Is Research in Motion into the Apple-esque style of putting a tag price?
A new leak posted by TmoNews is claiming that T-Mobile USA could offer the new BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 under $300, but that is not contract free — and will include a ball and chain 2 year contract agreement.
According to the document, the new BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900, which is the GSM version of Sprint and Verizon’s Bold Touch 9930 will be priced $599.99 off-contract, while the price tag for the Bold 9900 with 2 year-contract is $299.99, and that’s only after a mail-in rebate.
RIM knows that the best way to gain more users is to improve their devices, operating system, and app delivery based on what the consumers want. It’s been a long time coming but the Twitter for Blackberry application just left BetaZone and made its way into the Blackberry App World to give Blackberry users more reason to stick with their smartphones even more.
