BlackBerry Bold goes to Pakistan too

Today, BlackBerry Bold finally went on sale in the US, offered by AT&T for $299, with a 2-yr contract agreement. But this day also marks the announcement of RIM’s high-end smartphone in one of Asia’s most populous countries: Pakistan.

The Bold will reach Pakistani mobile users via Ufone, Pakistan’s second largest mobile carrier, and EMS (Emitac Mobile Solution), one of RIM’s strategic channel partners.

Although the QWERTY-equipped smartphone should be on sale across Pakistan starting today, RIM didn’t say how much it costs.

Anyway, Ufone will probably sell the Bold with several plans and contract agreements, so its price should depend upon them. 

Those not yet familiar with BlackBerry Bold should know that the smartphone features, among others:

  • A 480 x 320 pixels display
  • Internal GPS
  • Wi-Fi
  • HTML browser
  • Push email
  • Document editor
  • 3.5mm headset jack
  • Media player
  • A 2 MP camera with flash
  • 1GB of internal memory and MicroSD/SDHC card support

Ufone has retail stores and distributors all around Pakistan, so customers should have no problems in finding RIM’s BlackBerry Bold, in case they think it suits their needs.
