The new BlackBerry Bold 9780 seems to be making its way to AT&T. The first video of an AT&T-badged 9780 has surfaced, so it will hit the streets with AT&T in a short matter of time with all the talk about it from AT&T store reps. The BlackBerry Bold 9780 is a refresh of the Bold 9700 with more RAM, a better camera and the highly anticipated BlackBerry OS 6. The seller of the unlocked AT&T BlackBerry Bold 9780 claims that the company won’t officially start carrying the handset until 2011.
Blackberry Bold 9780 is powered by a 624 MHz processor and runs on Blackberry 6.0 platform. It comes with a 2.44-inch TFT with 65K colors support, 480 x 360 pixels resolution and touch-sensitive optical trackpad. In addition to its full QWERTY keyboard, Bold 9780 embeds 256 MB internal memory, 512 MB RAM, as well as microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB, 2GB card included).
It also sports a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash and video recording capabilities. Other key features of the smartphone include: HSDPA, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, UMA, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP support, 3.5 mm audio jack, GPS with A-GPS support (BlackBerry maps), Push Email, IM and Document editor (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF). The Li-Ion 1500 mAh is rated by the manufacturer for 528 hours (408 hours for 3G) of standby time or 6 hours of talk time.
It’s on sale for eBay for those interested in grabbing it now rather than wait the rumored few weeks it’s expected to launch. Seller is asking $899.00 for it with $20 shipping.
