Update: It seems InfoSync World Just Made *BEST ESTIMATES* when posting their previous info (no actual source), so keep in mind these prices and dates are not official (it's possible they're not even close to official). But one things for certain, they've given a target for us to hope for. Now we just have to wait and see what the Bold actually hits the market at. *
Woahhh! It seems InfoSync World has gotten wind of the details on ALL OF THE 9000 Series Pricing and Release Dates.
The BlackBerry Bold should be hitting AT&T in July for $300, T-Mobile in September for $350, and Verizon and Sprint also in September for $300 (I'm assuming this is 2 year contract pricing). You can click on through for a detailed chart. Keep in mind these are not exact release dates, and we all know how popular the $xxx.95 pricing is, but if this turns out to be true it is HUGE news for us BlackBerry users.
For a device like the the Bold, I think this pricing is DIRT CHEAP AND....BIGGEST NEWS... it could be coming to a CDMA carrier in LESS THAN 12 MONTHS?!!? CRAZY. AMAZING. SO GOOD. As for off contract pricing, I'd *guess* at the $550 - $600 range.
No mention of Rogers here, but my educated hunch is they will be quick to follow AT&T (maybe two weeks later)...just as was the case with the Curve.
