BlackBerry Bold 9650, one of RIM’s newest smartphones, will be available via both Sprint and Verizon in the US. While Verizon said nothing about the handset (yet), Sprint has just announced that it’s launching the Bold 9650 on May 23.
Sprint will sell the BlackBerry Bold 9650 for $199.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate and with a 2-yr contract agreement.
The Bold 9650 is a world phone, so it has both EV-DO and GSM/HSDPA connectivity – customers will be able to use it in more than 185 countries across the globe.
Sprint’s BlackBerry Bold 9650 will feature a 480 x 360 pixels display, BlackBerry OS 5, optical trackpad, full QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, GPS, Sprint Navigation, stereo Bluetooth, 3.5mm headset jack, Sprint Music Store, Sprint TV, Sprint Football Live, NASCAR Sprint Cup Mobile, access to BlackBerry App World, 512 MB Flash memory, 2GB MicroSD card, and a 3.2MP autofocus camera with flash and video recording.
Sprint aside, Verizon may offer the Bold 9650 starting May 27 – but that’s just a rumor for now.
