The highly rumored BlackBerry Bold 9780 is almost official - it has just been spotted on the Vodafone Netherlands web page and should hit the market soon. And while we've already seen the smartphone before, its specs sheet was still missing. Up until now.
Sadly, there is still no information on the thing's processor, but the rest is all there on the Vodafone website. Even the price - the Bold 9780 is expected to start selling for 509 euro commitment-free price.
The BlackBerry Bold 9780 is powered by the recently introduced BlackBerry OS 6.0 and packs a hardware QWERTY keyboard, 512MB of RAM, a built-in GPS receiver and support for 3G with HSPA, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
The Bold 9780 screen measures 2.44 inches but Vodafone is mum on its resolution (rumor has it's a 480-by-360-pixel display). As for the camera, it is capable of taking 5MP stills.
Update, 21 Oct 2010: The BlackBerry Bold 9780 showed up on Orange UK website as well. The specs page there revealed a few more details - the smartphone CPU will be the the good old 624MHz one, and as for the screen resolution, it will be 480 x 360 pixels, indeed. (Thanks, Alaxandru)
i wish i had one..:(
I work for Orange UK and the 9780 is due to come out next week on our system (week 43). It was posted on our internal coming soon page a few weeks ago so it is not a rumour!
