Earlier this week, Vodafone UK said it would launch the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 “by August 16.” Surprisingly, the carrier has released the new Bold today, August 12. The smartphone can be yours for free on plans starting at £41 per month (24 months contract required).
Vodafone is the first to sell the Bold 9900 in the UK – other carriers, including O2 and Orange should start doing it in the next few weeks. Until then, if you want to get it from Vodafone, visit the carrier’s website here.
Part of RIM’s new family of BlackBerry 7 OS handsets, the Bold 9900 is only 10.5mm thin, and features a 2.8 inch VGA touchscreen display (it’s the first Bold with a touchscreen ), HSPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC capabilities, 5MP autofocus camera, 720p video recording, 768MB of RAM, 1.2GHz single-core processor, and 8GB of on-board memory.
