Today is BlackBerry Bold Touch day. Earlier, RIM decided to officially unveil the first ever BlackBerry Bold devices to feature touchscreens – the Bold 9900 and the Bold 9930. The BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 is already on its way to T-Mobile in the USA, which will append its usual ’4G’ branding to it prior to launch.
And via Twitter we’ve found out that the Bold Touch 9900 is also going to become available in RIM’s native Canada. For now, only Virgin Mobile has officially announced that it will be selling the smartphone, but because Virgin Mobile is owned by Bell in Canada, it’s probably safe to assume that the Bold Touch 9900 is also headed to Bell.
Unfortunately Virgin Mobile didn’t narrow the release time frame down from RIM’s official ‘late summer’, nor did it provide any pricing guidance at all. But after all it’s early days right now – this smartphone has only been announced hours ago. In the following days and weeks, we’re bound to find out all the important details, and, as always, we’ll keep you posted.
