The Rogers BlackBerry Bold 9780 is currently listed on the Future Shop website at $149.99 on a 3 year contract. The Bold 9780 is the same look and feel as the 9700, except it has a small spec boost, a better 5MP camera, and it ships with BlackBerry 6. It should be interesting to see how well this smartphone sells, considering the Curve 3G is going for $49.99 on a 3 year, and the 9700 is $99 on a 3 year. With the BlackBerry 6 upgrade coming anyways, is a 5MP camera important to you versus 3.2MP?

A few days ago Rogers rolled out updates for the BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300 and Bold 9700. The updates are for OS v18.104.22.1686 and v22.214.171.1242 respectively and they bring unlicensed mobile access (UMA) connectivity, allowing for voice over Wi-Fi calling (formerly Talkspot). You’ll have to talk to a Rogers representative but UMA is a helpful service that saves you minutes and money.

AT&T has expanded its BlackBerry offerings with the introduction of two 3G BlackBerry devices, the BlackBerry Curve 3G and BlackBerry Pearl 3G.
The BlackBerry Curve 3G will be available in stores and online for $99.99 (no rebate required) before the holidays. The BlackBerry Pearl 3G (model 9100) will be available for $149.99 (no rebate required) beginning October 17.
Sprint has announced that they will be carrying the BlackBerry Curve 3G and will be making it available through direct channels on September 26th and elsewhere on October 10th. The Curve 3G is the same as the 85XX series style and form factor wise, but it’s BlackBerry 6 upgradeable. Generally, this phone will run you about $50 more than its predecessors, which many will find worth it considering the upgrade. The Curve 3G will be available in Graphite Gray or Royal Purple.
