BlackBerry Bold coming first with AT&T

BlackBerry Bold coming first with AT&T
An Associated Press article, containing information about RIM shares and expected sales, reveals interesting information about the BlackBerry Bold carrier availability. It states that AT&T will be the exclusive carrier of the Bold in the U.S., being the only network that supports the 3G frequencies of the first (GSM) variant.

Unlike the iPhone though, exclusivity here does not mean “the one and only carrier”, but only that it will be the first to offer it. Unofficial information points out that the Bold will be available in both T-Mobile’s 3G-friendly and CDMA/EVDO flavors, so the rest of the carriers will also be able to launch it.

Currently, there is no information about its exact availability date, but the official press release stated it should be on the market in the summer.
