BlackBerry 8900 gets price

A leaked price sheet from AT&T for the Southwestern region revealed the BlackBerry 8900 smartphone will cost $200 on a new two-year contract after a $100 mail-in rebate at the carrier. The replacement for the 8300-series of phones sports a higher-resolution 480x360 display as well as a 3.2-megapixel camera, GPS sensor and Wi-Fi functionality. AT&T Navigator map and navigation service will be supported and users will be able to listen to satellite radio via XM Radio Mobile. A Yellow Pages app will allow them to search for phone numbers.

Unlike the BlackBerry 8900 sold under T-Mobile and Rogers, the AT&T model will not have Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) that will allow calls to be made over VoIP networks when in the vicinity of a Wi-Fi hotspot.

While no dates have been confirmed, the phone is expected to come to AT&T on May 25th. If the leak proves true, AT&T will have priced its BlackBerry 8900 $50 higher than competitor T-Mobile. [via BGR]
