T-Mobile First To Announce The BlackBerry Bold Touch 4G Coming Later This Year

226800_10150175662228895_108726828894_6589618_1728926_nRIM announced the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900/9930 today and soon after T-Mobile followed by announcing on their Facebook fan page that they will be launching this device with 4G connectivity . The Bold touch is a sleek and fast. If you have been following the news we are working on another video with more of an in-depth look at the device. From what I been told T-Mobile is planning on releasing this device sometime in June. That date could change but they desperately need a new BlackBerry. It is nice to see T-Mobile releasing this device since they were not able to get their hands on the original 9000.

  1. This while 4g still has me confused. I am on Rogers here. I know they are testing LTE, but, I don’t know if they will have HSPA+.

    HSPA+ is one of the other “4gs” right?

    I hate 4g…….

    • For Rogers 4G = LTE (and they are right) and will come this year… Rogers, like the others operators, offers actually HSPA + (3,5G).

      But for an important number of operators (and T-Mobile is one of them), based on the new ITU position, 4G begins with HSPA + (the old 3,5G deployed yet).

  2. Oh Heck Yeah! I am a BB addict and a super T-Mo Fan!

    Haters need not reply…

  3. Upon further processing of this information….. does this mean the 9900 is a 4g phone?????

    I suspect I am missing something here…

    • Yes, for the 9900 if you consider HSPA+ 4G. There is still debate about that. For the 9930 I am not sure… Since I am not very familiar with CDMA technology… But it doesn’t say LTE (real 4G technology) so I’d say it is just a 3G phone on CDMA networks.

  4. “That date could change but they desperately need a new BlackBerry.”

    If memory serves me correctly, Tmob got the 9780 within the past 6 months and the last Bold device that AT&T received was the 9700. AT&T better carry this device and they better release it sooner than later.. or I’m jumping ship.

  5. is the 9900 the only hspa+ blackberry so far?

  6. Please bring the Blackberry Touch 9870 to Tmo!
