3 Mobile UK launches BlackBerry Bold

It might be a spot behind Orange and T-Mobile, but 3 Mobile UK is now carrying the BlackBerry Bold. This is 3 Mobile’s first BlackBerry - a great way to break onto the stage. Vodafone and the Carphone Warehouse will also be packing the BlackBerry 9000 shortly, so UK customers will have plenty of options to choose from. Keep an eye on 3 Mobile’s online store for more details.

    Any word on price sans contract?

    3 dont have the black berry bold yet and they dont seem to know when it will be available which is disappointing. I suspect 3 will offer the best all round package and are waiting for T-mobile to bring out their tariff and then undercut all.
    T-mobile are due to bring out their tariff end of this month.

    They don’t have it yet, what’s the point of talking about having it in Aug 2008 when they still don’t sell it on Jan 2009 !

    Did they confirm its coming out on the 2nd of May…beacause they said April 09 to me. I think they’re talking rubbish to be honest. Hopefully not though, ive been waiting for it forever now.
