Optus in Australia are selling this from next week on an $89/month plan which includes $300 worth of calls and unlimited data. Bet Telstra will be struggling to match that!
Love how the Bold will support the rich formatting of HTML - no more plain unadorned text!!!!!!
By the way, Telstra are offering the HTC Touch Diamond $80/month plan which includes $700 worth of calls and 10MB of data. Are they kidding?
Bold it is! Bye, bye Telstra.
this handset is amazing. just seen a demo version from a blackberry rep and i proud to say when released in the uk i will become a proud owner. the processor speeds up absolutely everything, music media and imaging are superb.
hey guys i work for t-mobile and word is that we are going to get the bold in october. no word on pricing yet.
AT&T september 19th there is supposably going to be a baby bold according to the blackberry rep

I agree. But note - My Company Blackberry is restricted to Office email. So, I bought an 8120 and a Sony Ericsson C902. Well, what do I need? I need a combination of both. The problem in my view is that Canada and the USA have not been made fully aware of a an "All in" phone such as the Sony Ericsson - or indeed any of the phones available to Europe, but that they are targetted by Blacberry services. And I agree, paying an additional cost for the Blackberry service, which incidently is in my opinion old hat. Google email pushes email to ANY phone for FREE. Martin
Check out play . com you can pre-order a sim free bold that is due for release on the 28th of august.
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2008TELSTRA is crap! Optus do alot better then Telstra, With pricing and customer service! 1% isn'... moreNo just admit that Telstra has better reception than Optus. It does even in cbd. I've had both Optus and Telstra... and Telstra was the only one that had reception during elevator rides and basement floors. Optus is good... but not as good as Telstra when it comes to penetraion.
Telstra all the way and this phone should only be in Telstra!
In holland the Blackberry bold will be introduced with KPN @ 13-08-08.
BBAUS, 02 Aug 2008Well of course you would choose Telstra over Optus or 3 because the netowork coverage is far s... moreTELSTRA is crap! Optus do alot better then Telstra, With pricing and customer service! 1% isn't much difference and the mammoth plan is aiming for 99% of Aust which will then make them even!!!!
What con? im sorry but you do not make any valid points..Yes for some people,receiving the email immediately is of vital importance. It could make all the difference! I like the E71 but the BB OS is very stable. Most importantly BB's for alot of people are provided by our employers, simply because it is part of the Corporate structure, and, a communications device supported by IT departments...
Can someone tell me what the point of a BlackBerry is? So, you pay £15 EXTRA (approx) on top of your regular tariff - simply so that when an email comes in, you get to know right away - not when you manually check or have your email client poll the mailserver - say, every 5 minutes? Even my old mobile phone from 2005 can do that! (SE V600i) Again, would I be wrong in saying that RIM have pulled off the biggest con ever simply to appeal to suits who didn't realise ANY modern phone can send, organise and send email? I mean, what is wrong with a Nokia E71 configured with your email accounts? (I am not knocking the form factor or product, just the concept!)
