T-Mobile cuts the upgrade price of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 starting today
According to some photographs ofT-Mobile pricing documents, the mobile operator is cutting the 2-year upgrade price of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 from $299.99 to $249.99 starting today. The nation's fourth largest carrier had given the handset the highest price out of the three major U.S. carriers offering the model. Following the price cut, T-Mobile's price will match the $249.99 subsidized price Verizon is asking for the CDMA variant of the phone, the BlackBerry Bold 9930. That still is $50 more than the $199.99 that Sprint is charging for the BlackBerry Bold 9930.

The BlackBerry Bold 9900 offers a combination of a physical QWERTY keyboard-considered by many to be the best physical QWERTY ever placed on a smartphone-along with a 2.8 inch touchscreen with a resolution of 640 x 480. A single-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm 8655 is under the hood and 768MB of RAM is aboard. Of course, BlackBerry 7 OS is installed which brings the second-generation of RIM's WebKit browser to the unit, rendering pages 40% faster than the first-gen software. No front-facing camera here, but there is a 5MP camera on the back which captures video at 720p.
