*UPDATE* It is $599 full retail, $399 with a new account after $100 rebate. The middle price you can kind of see is the bundled price. We’re assuming the $199 price tag that is supposed to be at launch will be a launch promotion.
Here is the latest AT&T price list, which shows the BlackBerry ‘Bold 2’ aka Bold 9700 for $399. We’re assuming this is the price without a contract and obviously before a rebate. In the official AT&T press release is says the Bold 9700 will cost $199 after a $100 mail-in rebate. We’re curious why the Bold 9700 is listed for $200 more than it should! AT&T most likely decided to drop the price in hopes to compete with T-Mobile, who stated they were selling the Onyx for $200, which seems to be the trend in price for newly released smartphones. If we find out anymore info on the price difference we will update the post.
