There’s more evidence – and we use that term loosely – that the follow-up to the BlackBerry Bold smartphone will be available for purchase next week in the U.S.
A supposedly leaked internal release from T-Mobile espouses the virtues of the Bold 2 aka 9700, including its built-in GPS, 3.2 megapixel camera, full QWERTY keyboard and the fact that it’s the first 3G BlackBerry with Wi-Fi. The document also says the phone will be available for sale Monday, Nov. 16 and can be purchased by business customers now. TmoNews is confident enough in its source to say the phone “goes official” on that date.
But don’t go to Vegas and plunk down a bunch of cash on that Nov. 16 release date just yet. Nothing official has been released by T-Mobile, and some sources say it won’t be available until the 18th. Either way, it’s coming soon to join the holiday rush.
