It looks like the BlackBerry Bold 9900 is now available in the Middle East or in K.S.A. to be exact. I saw a booth by Axiom (a BlackBerry authorized retailer and distributor) at Granada mall here in Riyadh displaying and demoing the BB Bold 9900. I tested the phone and it looks solid and fast. Unfortunately, I was not able to test it as much as I can, since the phone’s language is in Arabic. The people at the booth said that BB Bold retail price is SR 2,600, that’s almost Php30,000.
I also asked when will be the new BlackBerry® Torch™ 9850/9860, since I might get this as a replacement to my now 3 year old Corby Pro. They said that it may be available after 2 to 3 months, but considering that BlackBerry Bold 9900 is now available just 3 weeks after it was announced, we may see the new BlackBerry® Torch™ 9850/9860 sooner. Other products that are on display the BB Playbook and Torch 9800.
I apologize for the blurry image, you can find more photos and info for BB Bold 9900 here.
