By Posted 4 May 2011, 00:20

Yesterday we posted an article telling you all about the new BlackBerry Bold 9900 and Bold 9930, we are now hearing that the 9900 is headed to UK carrier Vodafone, however we cannot confirm a release date or price just yet.

We do not know whether Vodafone has an exclusivity deal in the UK, all we can confirm is that it will launch sometime this summer. Currently Vodafone offer the BlackBerry Torch 9800 for free if you agree a 24-month deal costing just £30 each month, perhaps the Bold 9930 will be offered on a similar deal.

The BlackBerry Bold 9900 runs BlackBerry 7 OS out of the box, you can find out some of BlackBerry 7′s features here, whilst you can see full technical specifications for the 9900 and 9300 here.

RIM will be hoping that the Bold 9900 will be seen as a rival to high-end smartphones from Apple, HTC, Samsung, Motorola, Nokia and Sony Ericcson, we are yet to see anything which has blown us away, however the 1.2GHz processor and 768MB of RAM shows that there is potential.

As and when we hear more regarding Vodafone BlackBerry Bold 9900 we will keep you posted, which UK carrier would you prefer to see this smartphone come to? Let us know in the comments section below.
