Announced by RIM back in May, the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 still hasn’t been released anywhere in the world. But it should hit the shelves this month – not only in the UK, where Vodafone and O2 are getting ready to launch the handset, but also in the US.
Phone Arena has received an image which suggests that T-Mobile USA would offer the new Bold starting August 31.There’s no word on its price yet, but the leaked document reads that the 9900 will be offered with a $50 mail-in rebate. Most likely, the smartphone – which runs BlackBerry OS 7 and features a 2.8 inch VGA touchscreen display – will be sold for $199.99 on contract.
As previously mentioned, the Bold Touch 9900 will be T-Mobile’s first 4G (HSPA+) BlackBerry smartphone. A CDMA version of it – BlackBerry 9930 – is expected to be launched by Verizon and Sprint.
