Technology: AT&T- BlackBerry Sale on 4th November

Friday, October 24, 2008

Finally the long delayed BlackBerry will be going on sale on the 4th November, just before the start of the USA holiday shopping season.

AT&T Inc said Wednesday it would sell the BlackBerry Bold from Research In Motion Ltd for $299, or 50% more than it charges for Apple Inc's iPhone.

AT&T, which had set a new bar for smartphones with a $200 iPhone, said it would start selling the high-speed version of Rim's popular mobile email devices from Nov. 4, just ahead of the unofficial start of the U.S. holiday shopping season.

But with its relatively high price, Stifel Nicolaus analyst Chris King said the Bold with likely is more popular among executives than consumers.

"The BlackBerry is going to be almost entirely business focused. iPhone is still mainly attracting consumers," said Stifel Nicolaus analyst Chris King.

AT&T said it would be the first U.S. operator to support navigation services for customers traveling outside the country with the Bold, which also supports Wi-Fi, a short-range wireless network technology found in coffee shops.
