BlackBerry Bold coming to NTT DoCoMo in Japan next year
Going on a business trip to Japan in 2009 and thinking of taking a BlackBerry Bold with you? It might be better idea to go with NTT DoCoMo’s local-flavored one, since they’re going to release it there by then anyway.
Yes, RIM and NTT DoCoMo have partnered up to bring the all-business, all-the-time BlackBerry Bold to clearly seriousness-deprived folks over in Japan, saying that they will officially release the said smartphone in early 2009.
NTT DoCoMo offers a nice list of BlackBerry Bold features on its web site via this link (PDF), but if you’d rather see this handset in person, then have at it at CEATAC Japan 2008, where it will be showcased from September 30th to October 4th. No word on official pricing has been provided just yet.
