BlackBerry Bold Arrives in Jamaica... MON!

Usain Bolt and his BlackBerry Bold
By James Falconer on 5 Sep 2008 04:48 pm EDT

The BlackBerry Bold is now available in C&W's markets in Jamaica! I had a feeling Jamaica might get earlier access to the Bold than a lot of other places... What tipped me off was when I noticed Usain Bolt running with one in the 100 meter final. Anyone else notice that?

I also might suggest that Jamaicans refer to the BOLD as the BOLT, in honor of the world's fastest man, Usain Bolt. Man that guy can run. RIM, a special addition BlackBerry BOLT? Anyone?... Ugh... nevermind.

The Bold will be supported by Jamaican carrier Cable and Wireless Caribbean.

I must admit, BlackBerry Bolt sounds Great!


They should rename it to Bolt and have it in the JA colors.


Hyperlink works, but the name of publication is incorrect. Blackberry Bold Bolt Edition, Hmmm.....


I suggest a Blackberry "Thunder (BOLT)" "Jamaicans run tingz tingz nuh run wi"



Both C&W and Digicel have started to market them in the local newspapers here in Jamaica today


bad photoshop

(this of course doesn't mean he doesn't actually own one..)

Kevin Michaluk

I think James was going for some intentionally bad photoshop here.. supposed to be humorous. Awesome pic! :)


He was running with a Bold in the 100 meters. Did he get it passed to him after the race?


Just an fyi, even to the untrained eye like mine, if you look closely, you can see that the picture has been altered to show that

Ergo Scorpio

Umm isnt that his old time? His new time is 9.69 isnt it, lol this photo gets faker and faker by the second fast..


Oh WoW I really thought it'd hit Cuba First.

Fernando Fuentes

Mexico also has launched BB Bold today (Sept 8), with Telcel.
I am a proud owner and love it.


Clearly this phone thingy i sfake because Bold is being sponsored by DIGICEL, and this is a Cable and Wireless thing. sooo.......well.....DO the Math
