T-Mobile Announces New BlackBerry Bold 9780

Looking for a new T-Mobile BlackBerry? If you are then don’t pull the trigger on that Curve 3G just yet because T-Mobile and RIM (the BlackBerry maker) have a new BlackBerry coming soon. This new BlackBerry, called the Bold 9780, is an update to the current Bold 9700– and while it’s no Torch, this updated Bold is pretty solid in its own right.

Design wise, the Bold 9780 is pretty much the exact same as the 9700 with its solid screen and awesome BlackBerry keyboard, but under the hood is where the difference is made. This new Bold packs a number of improvements over the older Bold 9700 in this area, including:  double the RAM– up to 512 MB from the 9700’s 256 MB– for an even faster experience (particularly when doing things like multitasking), a 5 megapixel camera with flash (up from the Bold 9700’s 3.2 megapixel), 3G, WiFi, GPS, and the new BlackBerry 6 OS with all its new features like the updated BBM and better web browser.

Unfortunately, there’s no sign of this BlackBerry having access to T-Mobile’s new extremely fast HSPA+ network like the Android running G2 and new myTouch 4G, but you will be able to pick this bad boy up starting November 17th for a not too bad price of $129.99 with a new 2 year contract and data plan.
