OK, so first we thought the T-Mobile BlackBerry Bold 9700 was coming November 16th. Then, a November 18th rumor reared its head. Now, it looks like the original rumor may have been spot-on, at least if you believe the latest info I gleaned from my bud David over at TMoNews. The latest puts the Bold 9700 on T-Mobile on the 16th again. This, from statement leaked out from T-Mobile’s internal systems:
BlackBerry Bold 9700 Launches November 16
This Holiday, T-Mobile is scheduled to launch the first 3G BlackBerry with Wi-Fi calling, the BlackBerry Bold 9700, on November 16. The Bold 9700 launched on November 9 in the Business channel only.
The sleek and powerful BlackBerry Bold 9700 features a next-generation (624 MHz) processor, 256 MB Flash memory, Built-in GPS, Visual Voice Mail, a 3.2 megapixel camera, full-QWERTY keyboard with an innovative touch-sensitive optical trackpad.
At any rate, take this for what it’s worth. It’s still all rumor. I’ve also heard rumblings that the Bold 9700 will be available on T-Mo for business customers ONLY on the 16th… with availability for everyone else on November 18th. That would kind of piece together the two rumors we’ve been hearing for some time. Whatever the case, both dates are almost here, and we’ll know the truth well before then. The truth is out there…
