Man, we seem to be writing about BlackBerry phones quite a lot all of a sudden. Not that I’m complaining. Makes a change from the bloody iPhone 5.
Earlier reports suggested an August 18 release, however The Carphone Warehouse has cranked it up a notch, and reckons it’ll fire out the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 on August 12. Sweet.
Phones4u, meanwhile, appears to have slipped a wee bit, and says you can: “Order today for delivery on 24/08”. Poo.
Both sites offer a variety of contracts, with the rather random starting price of £31PM.
As we’ve mentioned several times recently, the Bold Touch 9900 will be the most powerful BlackBerry yet, with a 1.2GHz processor. It also has a 5MP camera, 8GB of on-board storage, and a 2.8in touchscreen above the obligatory Bold QWERTY.
We found out yesterday the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 will be joined by two Torches, namely the 9810 and 9860. All three will run the spanking new BlackBerry OS7. Why RIM, you’re really spoiling us.
