    RIM, T-Mobile, AT&T and Rogers Introducing the BlackBerry 9700






    T-Mobile, AT& and Rogers today announced the upcoming availability of the BlackBerry Bold 9700 with Wi-Fi

    Calling from T-Mobile. It will be the first 3G-powered BlackBerry smartphone available through T-Mobile USA, and also the first smartphone from Research In Motion that includes built-in support for both 3G connectivity and voice calls over Wi-Fi.

    Specifications

    3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, image stabilization, video recording, flash and 2 x zoom

    122 g, 109mm x 60mm x 14.1mm

    2.44?480 x 360 display

    New 624 Mhz processor, 256 MB of flash memory

    Wi-Fi with UMA support, A-GPS, Bluetooth (incl. A2DP)

    3.5mm headphone jack, microUSB jack, and microSD memory card slot supporting up to 32 GB

    BlackBerry OS 5.0

    Built-in* Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g) with support for Wi-Fi calling via UMA where available

    and Macs, and BlackBerry® Media Sync

    256 MB Flash memory

    microSD/SDHD memory card slot that supports up to 16 GB cards today and is expected to support 32 GB cards when available (a 2GB card is included)

    Premium and easy-to-access phone features, background noise suppression technology and high quality speakerphone

    “The new BlackBerry Bold 9700 delivers state-of-the-art features and performance in a compact and beautifully designed handset,” said Don Morrison, chief operating officer, Research In Motion. “This sleek and powerful 3G smartphone offers an incredibly refined mobile experience that is ideal for both personal and professional use.”

    The BlackBerry Bold 9700 offers easy access to BlackBerry App World™, the official app store for BlackBerry smartphones, enabling customers to browse and download fun and functional mobile applications to their phone. Many applications are readily available directly on the smartphone, such as Slacker Radio for easy access to free music, TeleNav GPS Navigator for turn-by-turn directions, and visual voicemail for easier access and response to voicemails. A hot-swappable microSD/SDHC memory card slot provides additional storage for multimedia files and archiving applications with a 2GB memory card included and support for 32GB cards when available.


    T-Mobile plans on selling the Bold 9700 “in time for the holiday season”, I been told Nov 11th, priced at $199.99 with a 2 year contract.

    Rogers has also made their announcement saying that the Bold 9700 will be available in the “coming weeks” for $299.99 with a 3 year voice and data activation of $45+.

    AT&T is saying that it will be “available in the coming weeks” for $199 after $100 rebate.

    Who’s ready for the 9700? I am!

    I would love to pick this device up, if nothing else, for the 3G. However I used my upgrade back in June for my 8900. Oh well, I can wait a few months.

    I also got my 8900 then but I have another line which is due for the early upgrade. I wonder if they'll release Dakota after this one. I really hope they do so I can hold out for it a bit longer

    I played with this phone yesterday, and I'm not too fond of the optical track pad, it might just take some getting used to, it's not much different than the trackball, but enough to annoy me LOL. Still a cool phone and it feels good in your palm.

    I've got me an early upgrade coming as well. Even though I just got my 8900 in February when it came out.

    @ Beeshabo-Where did you get your hands on a working one?

    A buddy of mine works at AT&T and he had one, so I played with it for a bit, and like I said, not too fond of the pad.

    beesh, what didn't you like about the pad? Did you try adjusting the sensitivity?
    It's always darkest before the dawn, so if you're gonna steal your neighbor's newspaper, that would be the time to do it.

    So is the track pad going to be standard in all new BlackBerries aside from the Storm? I still like the trackball especially in the 8900

    Yes, that's the new standard and probably we'll see liquid lens for camera and there are rumors about a new bb with a 5mpx camera
