Leaks show BlackBerry 9700 coming to AT&T, Bell

updated 01:00 pm EDT, Mon August 17, 2009

BB 9700 due at AT&T, Bell

A pair of images of inventory screens from wireless provider AT&T and Canadian provider Bell reveal the BlackBerry Bold 9700 will arrive soon at either. The Bell leak is especially important as it hints that Bell is nearing the activation of its HSPA network, with the Bold 9700 becoming one of the first HSPA-capable 3G phones. Despite the inventory screens, launch dates for the 9700 at either provider remain unknown, as does the pricing.

The near simultaneous appearance of the 9700 at AT&T and Bell is also appropriate given recent deals, as Bell's HSPA network will allow roaming on AT&T networks as well as the opposite. The Bell HSPA network is also expected to come out sometime in the fall, which should coincide with the Bold 9700 release date.

The BlackBerry Bold 9700 is also due at T-Mobile in the near future. The device should be the second BlackBerry to use an optical trackpad rather than a ball, and the phone is expected to include Wi-Fi support, BlackBerry OS 5.0, along with GPS, a 3.2-megapixel camera, and a 480x360 display.
