Al Sacco of CIO.com got an email from T-Mobile USA’s PR firm that contained a marketing image of the BlackBerry Bold 9700 as well as some previously unknown details. The image came before an embargo was signed so he decided to publish.

According to the PR firm:

“The BlackBerry ‘Onyx’ sports a premium experience and design with a high-gloss black finish and leather grain detail on the back. Boasting features such as high-speed 3G Web browsing, Wi-Fi calling, visual voicemail and support for corporate and personal e-mail options, the ‘Onyx’ will satisfy all your on-the-go needs. Also the phone comes preloaded with mobile applications from BlackBerry App World, including Amazon MP3 store for quick and easy music downloads and TeleNav GPS Navigator for turn-by-turn directions.”

It seems we’ll be getting an official announcement about this device early November. Rumor has it that the T-Mobile version of the BlackBerry Bold 9700 will come with slightly different specs. The T-Mobile version is rumored to have the same battery as the Curve 8900/Storm/Tour, while the AT&T version will come with the Bold 9000 battery. Also, the processor is rumored to be different as well.

It’s great to see App World coming preloaded with the device, and I’m hoping this will be standard on all future BlackBerry devices.

The Amazon MP3 store is interesting but I’m more interested in getting the 7Digital application. It was supposed to be available this summer but I’ve yet to see it available for download.

    T-mobile has the best customer service. That’s as far as it goes. A T-mobile phone, doesn’t matter which one, even on it’s 3G network, will not be as good as on any other of the other (top 2)networks. T-Mobile really needs to do something about this. I cannot wait until my contract is up. I have a Blackberry Bold with AT&T, works great. 3G phone on T-mobile sucks. Cancelling the internet.

    Maybe I’m mistaken… but I thought the new BOLD would be a combination of keypad and touchscreen (the code name was “MAGNUM”).

    I have Tmobile and their customer service is A1. However, it’s true, everything else sucks. I’m so tired of having to wait for 3G when the other major phone carriers have been ahead of the mobile technological curve for quit some time now. Tmobile needs to learn to follow the trends of business better before they become the underdogs getting surpassed by companies like Metro PCS.
