AT&T and T-Mobile Announce BlackBerry Bold 9700
On October 21, AT&T and T-Mobile announced the development of a new BlackBerry smartphone: the BlackBerry Bold 9700. The new device is a slimmer version of the BlackBerry Bold 9000 and offers a different look and a less chunky body than its predecessor.
The Bold 9700 will be the first BlackBerry that T-Mobile supports. According to PC Mag, the “9700 has a 624-MHz processor, 256 Mbytes of memory, a 3.2-Megapixel camera, a 3.5-mm headset jack and an unusually sharp, bright 360-by-480 display.” The phone will also use the new BlackBerry 5.0 OS, and the system is said to have a faster-running web browser than other BlackBerry devices.
Both AT&T and T-Mobile versions will offer 3G coverage as well as Wi-Fi capability. T-Mobile will go one step further and offer an unlimited amount of calling over the Wi-Fi network (for an extra $10 per month). The phone is said to be a great, powerful upgrade for either the Bold 9000 (on AT&T) or the Curve.
