New BlackBerry Bold 9780 officially announced by RIM, T-Mobile will sell it for $129

Research In Motion has finally decided to announce the BlackBerry Bold 9780.

The 9780 is the first Bold smartphone to run BlackBerry OS 6 – but we already knew that, since the handset has been confirmed, re-confirmed, and even presented on some carriers’ official websites in the last few weeks.

The 9780 is not too different from the Bold 9700. The novelties (apart from the new OS) include 512MB of RAM, a 5MP camera, and Wi-Fi calling (carrier dependent, of course).

“This new model builds on the highly refined mobile experience that BlackBerry Bold users already know and love and delivers a wide range of enhancements including a rich new user interface, a fast and powerful WebKit-based browser, broadly improved communications and multimedia capabilities, an incredibly useful Universal Search feature” declared Carlo Chiarello, Vice President, Product Management at RIM.

RIM will launch the BlackBerry Bold 9780 around the world in November. T-Mobile USA says it will offer it starting November 17 (as rumored) for $129.99 on contract – see more here.
