Anxiously awaiting that new Blackberry Bold 9650? Well that wait is coming to an end. Through a variety of sources it appears that the Blackberry 9650 is going to ship on May 16th, 2010. The pricing has not been released but if we go off of the inventory leaks from Sprint then the phone will come in at $199 USD after a mail in rebate. The mail in rebate this time around is for $100 USD. As usual an out-of-contract pricing option will also be available for $449 according to a report from Crackberry.
This phone is the next generation of the Blackberry Tour 9630 released a while ago. There are two key differences that are worth noting:
- The old trackpad which so many users reported having issues with is being replaced by a new and improved version.
- A version will be sold which does not contain a camera. Of course this is important for enterprise markets.
As always you can’t forget to put a professional ringtone on your new 9650. We think its the first thing you should download on your new device. ExecTones.com can help with this.
