Yesterday we found out that the BlackBerry Bold 9700 has started to ship to Rogers locations and will most likely be released sometime next week. We were unsure if the 9700 would be Rogers Talkspot (UMA) compatible.
Today we received a chart that shows all of Rogers BlackBerry devices with their specs and features, specifically for the 9700 it shows the Bold 9700 will in fact be Talkspot compatible. We’re told that things might change and they may decide to remove the feature. Rogers Talkspot allows you to make unlimited calls when you are in your “home calling zone” without wasting your cellphone minutes.
The Bold 9700 will be available for $299.99 on a 3-year contract with a minimum $45 monthly Voice and Data plan.
More soon! (Thanks Haristo!)
