BlackBerry Bold 9930 goes on sale at Verizon for $250

updated 09:10 am EDT, Mon August 15, 2011

Bold 99300 arrives with classic QWERTY

Without any fanfare, Verizon has started selling the BlackBerry Bold 9930. The 9930 is an update to RIM's classic BlackBerry design. It carries the same features as the Bold 9900, its GSM-based sibling.

Both mix a 2.8-inch, 640x480 touchscreen with a full-size keyboard and are the first to ship running BlackBerry 7. They share a much faster 1.2GHz processor (likely a Snapdragon) and a five-megapixel camera that lacks autofocus but does record 720p video. A total of 8GB of built-in flash provides the storage.

Price for the 9930 on Verizon is $510 contract-free, or $250 with a two-year contract. It should reach retail stores on August 25.
