Rogers will be releasing the BlackBerry Bold 9790 “just in time for the holiday gift-giving season”… which should be sometime later this week. They have yet to officially announce prices, but here they are for you (coming in a bit less than TELUS has it currently listed for):

3-year contract: $99.99 (with a $45/monthly voice and data plan)
2-year contract: $349.99
1-year contract: $399.99
No-contract: $449.99

The description from the internal doc above sums up the 9790: “Built with refined finishes and functional features, BlackBerry Bold 9790 provides a fluid high-resolution touch display, precise optical trackpad and navigation keys, iconic QWERTY keyboard, all in a narrow, pocketable size”.

We’ll have more info soon… expect this to hit stores/online this week.

(Thanks tipster!)

    Why is the 1 and 2 year term always so ridiculous from the big three?

  • Pahech

    They need to stop with the sign-2-years-get-a-measely-$100-off nonsense.

  • Joe

    The target marget states: Business users and young professionals. So basically anyone with a job, or teenagers that can convince their parents to pay the bill. In other words: everyone.

    i don’t get it. People here were quick to point out that $449.99 for a Bold 9790 doesn’t cost much more than the typical price tag of $350 for a Curve 9360.

    The Bold 9790 pricing is better than the 9810, 9860 and 9900 for sure. But ALL Curves, with NO exceptions, should cost under $300 each. There’s no reason to pay more!

    Contract terms should give you an uniform price depending on how long you take the contract. One saves $300 by taking 3 years, so they should save $100 for each year they take on a contract, up to three years. And of course, i’m sure the carrier doesn’t pay $450 for each BlackBerry.

      It doesn’t really matter what the price it as. 95% of people will purchase the phone on a 3 year contract, which, in line with most phones will always be under $100. Give it a few weeks after it’s released and that 3 year contract now gets you the phone for $0. The no term contract price is irrellevent to most people.

    Im willing to bet Best Buy has this at 0$ with a 100$ giftcard by new years day. Just wait, and go get it there. Not worth spending 100$.

    Any takers???

    WiFi calling? Looks like RIM delivers the UMA device everyone has been hankering for.

    This should be free considering you can get the 9900 for the same price at dealers
