BBerry Bold at ATT First

AT&T will be the first to carry the BlackBerry Bold when it goes on sale this summer, the company confirmed today. Company official John Kampfe says the provider will be the "only" one in the US to offer the phone and will carry the Bold in the summer. As it's the only model to support WCDMA, it will also be the only BlackBerry to roam properly in Japan, Korea, and other countries that don't support either regular CDMA or GSM phone calls.

The handset however is known not to be limited to AT&T and should be quickly followed by a 1,700MHz version for T-Mobile's 3G service; RIM will also likely introduce a CDMA variant for use on networks such as Sprint and Verizon, although whether it will use EVDO Revision A for cellular data is still an unknown. The price of the phone also remains a secret, though early projections have the phone selling for approximately $300 after agreeing to a two-year contract.
