$199 for the BlackBerry 9000. Yet another reason to compare it to the iPhone 3G.
After swinging by our local Rogers shop to gawk at all the iPhone 3G fanboys and have a bit of a run at the demo unit myself, one of the reps mentioned that the BlackBerry Bold would be priced identically to the iPhone. $199 for the BlackBerry 9000 sounds reasonable, and would put it on fairly even footing with the iPhone, it’s just too bad that it won’t be quite as cheap as T-Mobile Germany’s Bold. Regardless, the hype for the iPhone 3G is going to be hard to beat.
