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
3.5mm headset jack
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.
