    Rogers to launch fast BlackBerry Bold aimed at business users on Thursday

    Advertisement



    Rogers is launching the new, high-speed BlackBerry Bold smartphone this Thursday.

    The Bold is primarily aimed at global business users and Rogers has the only network in Canada capable of running this smartphone. RIM has described the BlackBerry Bold as a high-performance smartphone designed for professionals who want an "elegant" device.

    No pricing details have been announced yet, but the Bold is expected to be expensive to operate with pricing similar to Apple's iPhone, also only available in Canada through Rogers.

    While there's usually always anticipation for new BlackBerrys, the buzz is more subdued than it was for the iPhone likely because the Bold is primarily aimed at business users.

    RIM is expected to unveil its answer to the iPhone later this year.

    "Expensive" how expensive? I hope it isn't over $450. I can't wait until AT&T gets theirs.

    No news on pricing?? It's going to be $399.99 on a 3yr contract. And full retail is $649.99.

    Edit: This has been confirmed by seeing the Rogers advertisment, and a screenshoot of a employees computer. I would post a link, but well we all know you can't do that here. But the pricing is Definitely out.

    I have never understood why the United States is one of the largest markets in the planet yet we are usually the last to get all the hip, new gadgets. It's like a new phone has to be released in places like Pakistan, Nepal, or Madagascar before the U.S. gets ahold of it. I'm so tired of having gadget envy against other countries.

    Hey canadas almost last too...

    So were int eh same boat kinda...

    The only reason i can figure why canada got it first is because of rogers's network already being set up and that RIm is a canadian company...

    The only reason that this phone is going to be like$400 is so that rogers doesn't loose that iPhone market that they commited to Apple to get the deal in the first place.
