AT&T finally brings the BlackBerry Bold: $299 starting November 4

It’s been centuries, well, actually two and a half months, since the BlackBerry Bold was first released by a mobile operator: Movistar Chile. Since then, lots of other carriers from all over the world have launched the smartphone, and now it’s finally the time for AT&T to do the same.

Unfortunately, this won’t happen right away (that “now” is just a way of speaking), but only on November 4. AT&T’s BlackBerry Bold will be available, starting that day, for as low as $299. Obviously, a 2-yr contract agreement is required to buy the smartphone at this price.

November is also the month when Verizon should release its BlackBerry Storm in the US, so many users will probably have a hard time deciding which new smartphone to buy. 

By now, I’m sure almost everyone knows the specs and features of BlackBerry Bold. Still, in case you’ve been literally sleeping since May 2008, when the smartphone was announced by RIM, here are its main attractions:

  • Quad band GSM connectivity, 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
  • Tri band HSDPA connectivity, 850/1900/2100 MHz
  • Wide 480 x 320 pixels TFT display
  • Full QWERTY keypad 
  • GPS & Wi-Fi
  • HTML browser
  • Push e-mail
  • Document reader, editor
  • Media player
  • 2 MP camera with flash 
  • 624 MHz processor
  • 1GB of internal memory 
  • MicroSD & MicroSDHC cards support, up to 16GB

BlackBerry Bold will be available for purchase in all of AT&T’s stores and online, from the carrier’s official website.
