If you’ve been waiting for the BlackBerry Bold on the Verizon network, the wait is finally over. It’s finally available on the Verizon Wireless website for purchase, and according to the press release will be available in the Verizon stores on June 10th. The features of the phone are slightly different than the Tour 9630, but it’s finally available for purchase. So what does the Bold sport?
It still comes with the $350 Early Termination fee for a one year/two year contract. It’s very similar to the Tour 9630 in the keypad and shape and that it’s Global, however the Bold has the WiFi, the trackpad, and TWICE the app memory and flash memory than the Tour 9630. The price for the Bold is $509.99, but online with a two-year contract (new or upgrade) is $149.99! Not bad for a two-year contract at all. It’s also compatible with the Verizon Family Locator and uses the Skype and Push To Talk as the Tour. The best part of the Bold besides it being a BlackBerry? It is on Verizon’s 3G Network.
Have any of our readers been waiting for it? Anyone have the Sprint version? What are your thoughts?
