'T-Mobile UK has jumped the gun and revealed pricing for the, BlackBerry OS 6-toting Bold 9780. The Bold 9780 is the successor to the aging, but wildly popular Bold 9700. According to Electricpig, the new BlackBerry will be available before Christmas. The handset will be available for £0 ($0, if you convert) if you sign 2 years of your life away for a £30/month. Reasonable, no? However, we still don’t have any info on tariff details.
The three other major carriers in Blighty – O2, Orange and 3, have remained tight-lipped on availability. With the festive shopping season around the corner, you can expect all the major carriers to jump on-board'
Looks like the ball is rolling now
This handset is listed in the Orange UK October Pricebook with a trade £15 higher than the 9700...no date for stock at this moment
I've been using it for 10 days now, and all I can say is: Torch? WHAT???...9780 is the best BB I have ever had. I've been using the 9700 for a year with no problems whatsoever, and the 9000 before that. 9780 is THE BB!!!!!
is this phone still a rumor? there have been talks about a release that in mid-October-November
Let's try to get the ratings up. I am giving this phone a 10/10 every day and got it 2% up. Keep it on top! Blackberry is the bestes

I wish GSMARENA would change the photo that's up here of the 9780. There are more(better) photos out there of this phone that by the way, is no longer only a rumor, as GSMARENA also has posted.This phone has the potential to be the IT blackberry, maybe even better than the 9800--why you ask? well for starters, the 9780, and 9800 both have the SAME processor and the SAME amount of RAM, then main difference of course is that the 9800 is touchscreen, while the 9780 isn't---but this is EXACTLY my point, the touchscreen version of OS 6 takes up more than twice the amount of device memory than non-touch Blackberry smartphones that will have OS 6, so I would assume the same thing with the Storm 2,Storm 3, and the upcoming Magnum, being that ALL of these devices will be touchscreen, as opposed to the 9780, Pearl 3G, and the Tour 2/"Bold". Touch screen phones generally use more of the processor AND the RAM memory of the device, keepng that in mind that the 9780 has TWICE the RAM memory than the 9700 had, I'd MOST DEFINATELY expect 9780 to be the ULTIMATE BLACKBERRY, OF THIS YEAR.------
