AT&T have finally announced availability of the BlackBerry Bold smartphone, RIM's latest QWERTY-equipped 3G smartphone. The handset will launch on Tuesday, November 4th, priced from $299.99 with a new two-year agreement. That not-inconsiderable figure gets you a 480 x 320 display, WiFi, 3G, 1GB of onboard storage and a 2-megapixel camera.
Capacity can be augmented via microSDHC cards up to 16GB in size, both for photos and video shot on the integrated camera and for pictures, music and video loaded to play on the Bold's media player. Of course, it will also include the usual BlackBerry messaging suite, including push-email and synchronized calendar, together wit AT&T's streaming music and video, AT&T Navigator with turn-by-turn directions and use of over 17,000 WiFi hotspots across the US.
Bluetooth 2.0 supports the A2DP wireless stereo profile, while there's speaker-independent voice control and the BlackBerry Desktop Manager app. The BlackBerry Bold will be available on November 4th.
