BlackBerry Bold 9930 to be priced at $249.99 with signed contract for Verizon
Yesterday, we reported that the CDMA flavored BlackBerry Bold 9930 would be launched by Verizon via direct fulfillment on August 15th, and through Verizon stores on August 25th. What we didn't have then was a possible price of the unit, a situation that has now changed. Thanks to a leaked screen shot of a Verizon computer page, we have discovered that the Bold 9930 will be sold for $249.99 with a signed two year pact. This matches the price that a leaked flyer suggests that Sprint will be offering the same phone for, as we told you yesterday. To qualify for the subsidized price, a data plan of $29.99 monthly, or higher, is required.

The full retail price of the BlackBerry Bold 9930 is $509.99 and a pre-paid version will cost you $444.99; we expect we will hear more information about that option when the phone is properly and officially announced by Big Red. If you decide to go ahead with this phone, you had better be sure it is what you want because you probably will have it in your palm for at least 2 years with the Early Termination Fee for this device coming in at $350. 

RIM has high hopes for the BlackBerry Bold 9930. Resembling the Bold 9000 and offering a physical QWERTY that is 6% wider than the keyboard on the latter model, the device would appear to be a sure hit among BlackBerry users. With a browser that can render sites with the best of them, a speedy processor, plenty of RAM and a 2.8 inch responsive touchscreeen, the Canadian based manufacturer hopes that it can woo some Apple and Android users over to the 'Berry farm before RIM's ambitious QNX driven Superphones are launched early next year.
