Just as we anticipated, T-Mobile has announced that they are getting the new BlackBerry Bold 9900 smartphone, and this also happens to be their first 4G BlackBerry. This is great news for BlackBerry users since T-Mobile has a super speedy 4G network. The 4G BlackBerry 9900 will be available for a pretty pricey $299 after a $50 mail-in rebate. T-Mobile business customers will get first grabs at it starting today, August 17th, and the handset will become more widely available as of August 31st.
Under the hood, the BlackBerry 990 is running on a 1.2 GHz processor, it’s sporting Liquid Graphics technology with a 24-bit high-resolution graphics and advanced sensors, and it’s also running on the latest BlackBerry 7 OS.
We know of quite a few dedicated BlackBerry users that have been impatiently waiting for the new Bold series, let’s just hope that the high price-tag doesn’t scare too many people off.
