It’s official, the Blackberry Bold 9700 is coming to T-Mobile and AT&T. Among the improvements, the phone is smaller, lighter, with a better camera (3.2 Megapixel) and it will be faster (624Mhz). The trackball is now gone, as many users complained that it gets stuck in presence of dirt. When we tested the Blackberry pad in recent models, it worked fine. The good news for T-Mobile users is that UMA (Hotspot@Home) is supported, as shown above, so calls over WIFI are possible. Unfortunately, the AT&T version won’t have that feature. The Bold 9700 should start selling in early November.
Here’s the official promotional video:
