Sprint Gets Bold 9650 Today

Sprint has launched the BlackBerry Bold 9650 for sale on their site and it seems to be up about a week earlier than initially reported.  

Looks as if Sprint has launched the Bold 9650 on their site, and are rapidly looking to sell, sell, sell at least of course until their baby EVO releases. The Bold 9650 is slated for a May 23rd release, but it seems that Sprint just could not hold out any longer, and have posted the newest release from Blackberry at $199 with a new two year contract, the phone without the included contract will run you about 450.00.

This new installment of the Bold series from Blackberry seems to be rearing its head at the wrong time for Sprint as their eggs are collectively in the EVOS’s basket. However strategically they could not afford to push the newest Blackberry 9650 out of there line up, and launching such a powerful Blackberry on 5/23 would be entirely way to close to the launch of their highly anticipated EVO. So if you were looking to pick this Bold up on a different carrier you will have to wait about an additional week, if you are a Sprint customer go pick one up, but don’t regret it when the EVO releases.

Some key features of the new Bold 9650 posted by Sprint are as follows;

  • 3G speeds where available
  • Music capable
  • Sprint TV®
  • GPS Navigation enabled
  • Web browsing capable
  • Email capable
  • Camera
  • Bluetooth® Wireless
  • Memory card slot
  • Voice activated dialing
