Bold 9900 to arrive August 31st on T-Mobile

Provided you can swallow the price tag
Those here in the U.S. waiting for the latest BlackBerry Bold from RIM were dealt a bit of a surprise when T-Mobile confirmed their launch plans for the 9900. T-Mobile will be offering the BlackBerry Bold 9900 starting on August 31st for $299.99 with a two-year contract.

Yes, that’s right… if you want to step up to RIM’s latest and greatest BlackBerry you are going to have to part with $300. Wait a second, that isn’t exactly correct. Apparently, it is $299.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate, so those that want to be first will have to fork over $350 to have that privilege.

While T-Mobile is apparently excited about the BlackBerry Bold, we suspect that initially sticker shock might keep some buyers away. We have not been able to confirm yet if AT&T is also planning to follow T-Mobile’s lead with the 9900, but one of our sources in the land of orange claims that he suspects this will be the way that AT&T is going as well, or at least initially.
