Available at Sprint since mid-May, the BlackBerry Bold 9650 is finally arriving at Verizon, too. The largest US mobile carrier (which might launch the Apple iPad soon) will sell the Bold 9650 online starting tomorrow (June 3), and in stores starting June 10.
The 9650 is Verizon’s first global smartphone to support GlobalAccess Connect, so it can be used for tethering in more than 200 countries worldwide.
The new BlackBerry Bold features a 480 x 360 pixels display, full QWERTY keypad, optical trackpad, Wi-Fi, Verizon Navigator 6, stereo Bluetooth, 3.5mm headset jack, and a 3.2MP autofocus camera with LED flash.
Verizon’s Bold 9650 will be cheaper than Sprint’s version: $149.99 with a 2-yr contract agreement and after a $100 mail-in rebate. A non-camera edition will also be available on June 3.
