Previously known as the BlackBerry 9000, the BlackBerry Bold is now being sold through AT&T stores as well as online from the wireless provider. The smart phone is being sold for $300, after a commitment to a two-year voice and data plan and a $100 mail-in rebate. Senior vice president for devices at AT&T wireless, Jeff Bradley, called the Bold the best BlackBerry smart phone ever. The Bold comes with a VGA display, a full QWERTY keyboard for quick typing, a 624MHz processor, 1GB of internal storage, a 16GB expansion slot, and a 2-megapixel camera. Also with the phone are bundled applications from both AT&T and BlackBerry, which will accommodate both business users and every day consumers. BlackBerry Internet Service is also offered on the phone, allowing push-based e-mail for as many as ten e-mail accounts.
