The thinnest BlackBerry smartphone yet and the first to offer a high performance keyboard since the BlackBerry Bold 9000 is ready to rock Asia with pre-orders now taking place in both Singapore and Malaysia. In-store availability is September 1st for Singapore and September 15th for Malaysia. With the BlackBerry Bold 9900 rolling in to more and more countries every passing week, RIM has now proven that its biggest smartphone launch yet has only begun, with expectations to rank high in sales figures on a global scale.
Customers looking to buy the new handset in Singapore can turn to SingTel, StarHub and M1, while the Malaysian population will have to depend on Celcom, DiGi and Maxis. For pricing, Singaporean customers will have to wait until the local carriers release more information, but BlackBerry people in Malaysia will be relieved to hear that the BlackBerry Bold 9900 will set you back a smooth 2188 Malaysian ringgits, or $735 U.S. dollars. Please refer to your local carrier for contract pricing and additional information.
