BlackBerry 8800 at ATT
AT&T (still known as Cingular) has officially released the BlackBerry 8800 for its subscribers. As was promised last week, the Canadian smartphone is shipping with a slightly customized body and interface and a push-to-talk feature. The new BlackBerry otherwise holds close to the quad-band GSM, EDGE broadband support, and Bluetooth 2.0 features of the reference device.
Pricing is set at the anticipated $300 when joined with a two-year service plan, but increases to $500 for those who prefer to buy the 8800 from the American carrier outside of a contract. AT&T should have the phone online and in stores today.
