The BlackBerry Bold 9700 is on sale from the official T-Mobile site, but you can get a bit of a better deal from Walmart. The official price for the 9700 is $199.99 on the new Even More plan, or at $449.99 on the Even More Plus plan. From Walmart, the device is as low as $129.99.
It looks like the BlackBerry Curve 8520 will start off at a very reasonable rate at Walmart. The device will sell for $48.88 with a two year T-Mobile service contract. T-Mobile stores will be selling the device for $129.99, therefore charging their own customers a fee of $100 for using the retail outlet.
Starting at around $50 on a 2 year contract is a fairly clear indication that we’ll see this device being offered for free within the year. Not a bad device for that price.
So you’re interested in purchasing the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 – maybe for yourself or as a Christmas present for a loved one. But in this current economic climate, money is tight, and you’re not quite willing to purchase the Pearl Flip from T-Mobile for $150 on a 2 year contract, or from Rogers for (possibly) $150 on a 3 year contract. The BBCool crew has compiled a quick guide of other venues to purchase the Pearl Flip 8220 at a reduced price.
