BlackBerry Bold 9650 now available on Sprint's web site
After a long wait, BlackBerry fans should be happy to hear that the BlackBerry Bold 9650 is now available on Sprint's web site. The sequel to the BlackBerry Tour 9630, the Bold 9650 is equipped with Wi-Fi-a feature that was missing from the 9630. And while the Tour used a trackball for navigation, the Bold 9650 upgrades to an optical trackpad which eliminates the need to replace worn out trackballs. Also, the new model has BlackBerry OS 5.0 out of the box. The appearance of the 9650 on the carrier's site is not a surprise as we recently reported that the handset was expected to be available on Sprint's web site on May 16th. After an instant discount of $150 and a mail-in-rebate of $100, the BlackBerry Bold 9650 costs $199.99 with a 2 year contract. Verizon customers are still awaiting the launch of their version of the phone.
