Leak has BBerry 9700 shipping in a month

The BlackBerry Bold 2 (known as the 9700) could ship for T-Mobile three weeks after it's unveiled, based on a new rumor. So far pegged for an October 21st unveiling alongside the AT&T model, the smartphone is described by a BGR tipster as actually shipping the device on November 11th, or exactly three weeks after it becomes public. It's still unknown whether or not the AT&T version will ship at the same time.

The phone is primarily an ergonomic upgrade to the Bold with a narrow profile and a more elegant trackpad in place of the veteran trackball. A 3.2-megapixel camera and a 480x360 screen are the two most notable hardware upgrades, though the Bold 2 would be special for T-Mobile as it would represent the carrier's first 3G-capable BlackBerry. It also ends AT&T's exclusivity run for the Bold series in the US.
