BlackBerry Bold 9900 now up for pre-order at Play, release on August 12

BlackBerry Bold 9900 was officially announced in May which is RIM’s new flagship device and it really packs some good features. T-Mobile USA was the first carrier to officially announce it and they will be launching it soon. And in UK, Vodafone and 3UK are carrying it and we recently told you that 3UK will be launching it in August. Now UK retailer Play is offering the Bold 9900 for £519.99 sim-free and it’s available for pre-order. They are getting ready to launch this device on August 12th which is almost a month away. I hope Play will launch it on the given date, because Play sometimes change the release date without letting people know who pre-ordered the device, so let’s see what they are up to this time.

If you are looking forward to buy a BlackBerry device, this is the best you can get right now or you can wait for Torch 2 which is also coming later this year, but Bold 9900 isn’t a bad choice at all. So our readers in UK, are you planning to grab Bold 9900 or you are happy with your Android or iPhone?
