Nicest phone coming into the market. i hope it will be coming to Africa (Nigeria)immediately.
Yes, it is us Rogers is launching the phone on July 25 08 in canada.
its so nice, it does exactly the same thing as the other blackberry's, come on 2MP camera?
maybe the camera ability of phones are overrated now...
Does the new blackberry bold have a music EQ for treble and bass changes or wat not?
Last thing I heared here (Vodafone NL) is the 23th of august. Lets hope ^^

Keep an eye out for the 'kick-start' the first BB clamshell due in sept in europe! ive seen it and played with it and you will really be surpised how good it is!
You'd probably be better off with this Blackberry as opposed to HTC.
The HTC doesn't have a keyboard you can actually see under very bright conditions. The screens on the HTC's are not transflective making it nearly impossible to see the screen in bright daylight conditions. At least this puppy has a functional keypad you can use under any conditions.
I wonder how this phone will shape up to the Nokia E71 and HTC Touch Pro. Im waiting to upgrade and deciding on which one to get. Hope the Blackberry comes out soon as well as the HTC so I can finally make a decision.
these blackberrys are all amazing and are taking over in the uk. the bold is a masterpiece and is very stylish. i dont know about the touchscreen model but find that touchscreens are pretty shite to use anyway.
The 9500 is the new Thunder thats touch screen. I hear BB is coming out with a clamshell flip phone as well
soooo, which will be the one to get .. the Bold or the Javelin ?? Im not sure which one will be the one to get. please help
GREAT NEWS !!!
After the news of BlackBerry Bold 9000 being released in Canada on July 25, via Rogers, we now have an even earlier release date for RIM's flagship smartphone: July 21. Unfortunately for all the BlackBerry fans in North America, the Bold will be available starting this date only in Europe, offered by T-Mobile Germany.
The retail price of BlackBerry Bold 9000 will be quite high (probably higher than expected): 550 Euros, meaning around $860. This is even more than the retail price of Apple's new iPhone 3G, which was announced by AT&T to come free of contract too, for $599 (the 8GB version) and $699 (the 16GB version). Sure, prices in Europe have always been higher than the ones in the States, and the Bold is a powerful smartphone while the iPhone 3G is more like a multimedia device, but the European price still seems high.
Luckily, T-Mobile Germany has other offers to come with the BlackBerry Bold. Thus, the smartphone can be bought for as low as 89.95 Euros ($140) with a contract agreement for two years and an expensive data plan.
