T-Mobile announces 3G BlackBerry Bold 9700 with 624 MHz processor

The new BlackBerry 9700 from T-Mobile comes as no surprise given all the leaks. I was actually in a T-Mobile store a couple months ago and a salesperson mentioned it was coming in an offhand manner. T-Mobile made it official today though and announced that the BlackBerry Bold 9700 would be coming in "time for the holidays". This is T-Mobile USA's first 3G BlackBerry and it looks sweet. It also has a speedy 624 MHz processor that should really fly.

Other specs include 256MB of Flash memory with a microSD card slot, Bluetooth, WiFi (with support for VoIP calls over the T-Mobile HotSpot @Home network), GPS, 3.2 megapixel camera, touch sensitive trackpad (no trackball on this device), 3.5-mm headset jack, 360 x 480 resolution display and it runs the new BlackBerry OS 5.0. I see on the T-Mobile site there is also a new service called PrimeTime2Go that offers TV viewing on the go.

The BlackBerry Bold 9700 will be available for $199.99 with a 2-year contract.
