Research in Motion officially announced the BlackBerry Bold 9930 back in May, at the same time with the Bold 9900. The two smartphones are pretty much the same, the sole difference being that the 9930 has both GSM / HSDPA and CDMA / Ev-Do connectivity, while the 9900 is a GSM / HSDPA device only.
Naturally, the CDMA / Ev-Do capabilities allow the 9930 to be used on Verizon’s and Sprint’s networks. While neither of the two carriers has announced the Bold 9930, the smartphone has been spotted recently showing off a Verizon intro screen – thus VWZ could introduce the new Bold soon.
Just like the 9900, the Bold 9930 runs BlackBerry OS 7 and features a 2.8 inch VGA touchscreen display, full QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC, 5MP rear camera, front-facing camera, 1.2GHz processor, 768MB of RAM, and 8GB of on-board memory.
I assume Verizon will sell its Bold 9930 for $200 on contract. More on this as we get it.
