T-Mobile’s BlackBerry Bold 9900, Costs $300

T-Mobile confirmed that they will have the BlackBerry Bold 9900 for $300.

T-Mobile chose midnight to price and date their BlackBerry Bold 9900 version. The BlackBerry 7 hardware will arrive to shops on August 31. For unclear reasons, the said version of the phone will cost higher than the AT&T, Sprint or Verizon versions. It will be on $300 on contract even after a $50 rebate.

The T-Mobile’s version should be similar to those of other networks other than the requisite change over its native bands, 14.4Mbps 3G. Its capabilities – such as Wi-Fi calling – aren’t expected to be available immediately, and it’s not clear if the personal hotspot creation will be an option.

The Bold 9900 is said to be RIM’s flagship of the year, with a mix of a 2.8-inch, 640 x 480 touchscreen and a distinctive, large QWERTY keyboard. The 1.2GHz Snapdragon, that goes along with 768MB of RAM and BlackBerry 7, are key to a major improvement in speed. Slimming down versus earlier Bolds drops autofocus from the 5 megapixel camera, but is returned by 720p movie recording. About 8GB of storage is built-in, even if 188MB is available purely for apps.

Nokia seems to shrink their N9 launch plans, as they include fewer countries which will get the said device than expected.

Despite the important marketing efforts Nokia has put behind its MeeGo flagship handset, the Nokia N9, the firm seems to be decreasing its launch plans to include fewer countries than expected. After announcing that there is no plan in bringing the N9 to the US or the UK, the said company also told MobiFlip that the device will not be heading to Germany, Austria or Switzerland either.

The said announcement casted doubt on Nokia’s launch plans for the N9, since the device is said to be released in a wider range of markets. It is unclear now how many and which countries will get the N9 through official channels — even though the Swedish page had provided a launch countdown.

For customers living in North America and who are willing to pay a premium for an unlocked N9, the said handset is expected to support AT&T and T-Mobile in the US along with several Canadian carriers.

Android is said to allow unwanted app switches and pop-up adds.

New research presented at the DefCon event this weekend revealed that a core design feature of Android could be used to annoy and possibly cheat the users.

Trustwave’s SpiderLabs head, Nicholas Percoco, warned the public that a standard Android API does not only push an app to the front and steal focus from another — but disable the standard back button command. It might create pop-ups within an ad, and CNET saw examples of apps that would appear legitimate but quickly becomes fraid to phish information.
