Someone at Research In Motion (RIM) must have spent their days watching soap operas, because the company is about to drop a Blackberry that’s a little more bold, and a little more beautiful. The Blackberry Bold 9700, a more powerful and refined version of one of RIM’s most popular Blackberry’s ever, is set to rock T-Mobile and AT&T subscribers sometime in November. On the outside the new phone sports a sophisticated, high-gloss black finish, chrome highlights and leatherette back. Under the hood there’s a faster processor driving the phone’s brand new Blackberry OS 5.0. The phone replaces the infamous trackball of yore with the touch sensitive square found on the newest Blackberry Curve, and, of course, there’s a plethora of other features thrown in Blackerry users have come to expect: that distinctive QWERTY keyboard, e-mail and messaging support, access to your favorite social networking apps, a 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, flash, and video recording capabilities, a higher resolution screen, a music and video player, 256MB of Flash memory, built-in GPS, and 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity, the later of which T-Mobile users can use to make calls as well.
T-Mobile hasn’t said a word about pricing yet, but AT&T subscribers will be able to pick up their Bold for $199 on contract after a $100 rebate.
