Leaked document confirms release for the T-Mobile BlackBerry Bold 9900 - plus pricing
Over the weekend, we were able to shed some light on the BlackBerry Bold 9900’s release with T-Mobile, but it now seems that we’re continuing to see some further proof about its August 31st anticipated release date.

This time around, yet another leaked document blatantly mentions August 31st as being the launch date for all channels – with August 17th being the one for their business-to-business and enterprise channels. Moreover, we’re finally getting some understanding in regards to its pricing! If this holds true, the next-generation Berry device is going to be sporting a whopping $299.99 on-contract price point after a $50 mail-in-rebate.

Of course, that’s a lot to swallow for some people – even more when it’s not too often we see high-end smartphones breaking the golden price point of $200. Taking into account that it’s sporting a touchscreen, that iconic BlackBerry form factor, and it’s T-Mobile’s very first HSPA+ enabled BlackBerry, does it still warrant such a hefty price tag?

If Blackberry wants to be popular they got to sell their phones for less. They make the most profit out of all manufacturers for phones that arent that great in specs.

RIM (if it had any chance at all) isn't going to make up any ground with a price tag that high...

If RIM expects to get any buyers they will need to have the price to $200 on a two year contract at maximum

Loved Blackberry and was a fan! but now with these new prices on phones that should have come out lastyear they have realy messed me up. i was gonna get the bb9900 from sprint but i think ill go with the motorola photon. Will miss the heck out of blackberry but you have failed me as a provider and have took to long with low specs and high prices. I am so hurt that i am leaving blackberry........good bye.
