BlackBerry Bold 9650 Goes Official On Verizon Wireless

With details of the Verizon BlackBerry Bold 9650 seemingly appearing every now and then, it was only a matter of time before the device went official on Verizon, and now it finally has. As with the previous leak, the carrier has confirmed that the device will be available for purchase online from June 3rd, and will also be available in stores on June 10th onwards. The device will set you back $149.99 when bundled with a two-year contract after a $100 mail-in rebate, which is about $50 less than what Sprint is asking for, in case you’ve been comparing. The Bold 9650 will also be the first device to support Verizon’s GlobalAccess Connect service, allowing you to use the Bold as a tethered modem even while abroad. Data plans for this device start at $65/month with a 5GB data cap and $0.05/MB overage fee. If you’re travelling, 100MB data allowance is allotted to you in selected countries, with overage charges set at $5.12/MB. Specifications of the BlackBerry Bold 9650 on Verizon include:
