T-Mobile slices the upgrade price of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 starting today
According to some photographs of T-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.

blackberries should not cost more than 150 dollars. No flash,no front facing camera, single core processor, only 768 MB ram, low resolution screen, and no good apps in app world. outdated software. need I say more.
