BlackBerry Bold dates?

Research in Motion's anticipated BlackBerry Bold cellphone may already have prices and dates for all major US carriers, a report claims. According to a supplied chart, the AT&T version will ship first in July, at a cost of $300; the T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon versions are all scheduled for September at the same price level, with the exception of the T-Mobile device, which is $50 extra. This may be attributable to contract plans not revealed in the chart.

Both the AT&T and T-Mobile versions are said to support 3G broadband through 3.6Mbps HSDPA, while the Sprint and Verizon phones are limited to 2.4Mbps EVDO. The latter pair will also be dual-band devices, whereas AT&T and T-Mobile will have access to quad-band technology.

The Bold is unique for for several features, among which is a high-resolution display, and the combination of 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi into a single BlackBerry for the first time. [via CrunchGear]
