The first BlackBerry Bold to have a touchscreen, the Bold 9900, has been announced yesterday alongside its ‘global roaming’ sibling, the 9930. Since RIM’s official announcement of the 9900, we’ve already found out that it’s going to be sold by T-Mobile in the US, as well as Virgin Mobile, and possibly Bell, in Canada.
Naturally, as time passes, more and more carriers from around the world are bound to announce that they too will be selling the Bold 9900 at some point. After all, almost all operators in the world offer BlackBerry smartphones these days, so it’s only logical that they’d also stock the first candybar touchscreen+QWERTY device to come out of RIM.
Today it was the UK operators’ turn to make it official that they will be selling the BlackBerry Bold 9900. As of now, only Vodafone and Three have made their intentions clear in this regard, however do expect Everything Everywhere (a.k.a. Orange and T-Mobile) to follow suit.
As with the Canadian news from yesterday, unfortunately neither Vodafone nor Three bothered to let us know of any specific price points or release dates they may have in mind for RIM’s newest BlackBerry, so we’ll have to wait and see.
