T-Mobile to launch BlackBerry Bold 9780 on November 17th
A leaked document shows that November 17th is being called the "estimated" launch date for the BlackBerry Bold 9780 for T-Mobile. The first Bold model to have the new BlackBerry 6 OS running the show has yet to be introduced officially by RIM, although as we reported, the handset will be launched November 2nd by Bell up in Canada.

The document shows that the 2 year subsidized price and the amount of a mail-in-rebate have yet to be determined. What is known is that the BlackBerry Bold 9780 will feature an updated 5MP camera, 512MB of RAM and a new black bezel. Most of the other specs are simply the same as the Bold 9700 that the new model replaces. That means the unit has a 2.44 inch display with resolution of 480 x 360 and a 624MHz processor.

As we showed you, the BlackBerry Bold 9780 has been seen all over the place overseas. Now we have some confirmation at last that T-Mobile customers will get the first crack at the phone in the States, with an AT&T launch down the road being highly probable.

I have the Blackberry Pro 9000 and my contract is up in 2 months. What makes me mad about Blackberrys keyboard it keeps getting smaller and the screen as well. Don't any guy's out there have big fingers anymore? I can out type any touch phone guy's at work but I guess the keyboard is on it's way out. How many of you out there still are using the 9000 and wanting to stay with Blackberry but with the issues above don't know what to do? SMS, email and phone quality is my main issue.
