BlackBerry Bold now available on Vodafone

Mobile phone network Vodafone has made public it is now carrying the new BlackBerry Bold 9900, which is being released tomorrow on a £41 a month tariff.

The BlackBerry Bold 9900 was announced at RIM’s BlackBerry World event in May – whilst being officially launched a few weeks back, alongside the BlackBerry Torch 9810 and 9860.

Research In Motion’s Bold 9900 is an update to the original 9000 model from 2008, which now arrives with a 2.8-inch 287 ppi touch screen, a physical Qwerty keyboard and a similar look to the first device.

The handset matches the two new torches by running the BlackBerry 7 OS, with a 1.2GHz processor and a 5 megapixel camera, with 8G of internal storage and as the first RIM device with the NFC technology built-in.

Vodafone is carrying the BlackBerry Bold for free on contracts starting from £41 a month, which is accompanied by 1,200 minutes, an unlimited text message bundle and a 500MB data allowance – which includes the BlackBerry internet service and 1GB BT Openzone Wi-Fi access.

The phone is also available on a low £20.50 price plan, with 100 minutes, a 500 text message allowance and a 500MB data bundle, with the BB Internet service and a cost attached of £399 for the handset.
