If you are considering buying the new BlackBerry Bold 9900 Touch unlocked in the UK, you might possibly be able to get one as soon as August 12. That is just one month away now, and a few online retailers are showing the price.
A few retailers are letting you pre-order the device now, Carphone Warehouse has it pegged for release August 2011 with no specific date, but you can pre-register for the handset now. Play.com has it priced at £519.99 with free delivery (Expected Release August 12), Clove.co.uk has it priced cheaper at only £514.80 (Due for release late August).
Amazon UK has it priced at £519.99 with free delivery with release date expected September 15, which is one month more than the above online retailers. If Play.com, Carphone Warehouse and Clove release it in August Amazon may just lose out on a few customers.
