BlackBerry Bold 9700 now available via T-Mobile
At last the T-Mobile faithful can now grab themselves the first T-Mobile 3G BlackBerry, the BlackBerry Bold has now come to T-Mob and is available through their website. However, there seems to be tad of confusion as to which BlackBerry Bold it may be reports Crackberry.
It looks like T-Mobile isn’t quite on the ball as they appear to have posted the wrong BlackBerry smartphone picture to their website as the T-Mobile BlackBerry Bold is the 9700 but the image is a BlackBerry 8900.
Price wise the BlackBerry Bold 9700 can be gained via the Even More plan for a reasonable $199.99 while if you opt for the Even More Plus plan the smartphone will hit you for $449.99 which is quite a step up in pricing.
The reason for the price differentiation is if you opt for the Even More plan it is based on a two year agreement with several phone discounts therefore the upfront price is lower. Even More Plus plan come without an agreement but deliver the best monthly rate pricing thus you pay upfront for the handset but save cash via the lower monthly plan.
