Tiger Direct Starts Selling BlackBerry Bold for $650


It’s coming. Oh yes, it’s coming. If you’ve been greedily rubbing your hands together in hot anticipation of the BlackBerry Bold, your day will soon be here. And by soon, I mean that you can fork over the money today and pray to the RIM gods that they’ll answer your prayers.

The BlackBerry Bold 9000 has popped up on the Tiger Direct website, allowing you to add the QWERTY-packing smartphone into your online shopping cart and proceed to give your credit card number. The listed price on the Bold is $649.99. The bad news is that this appears to only be a pre-order and you won’t be receiving delivery until Tiger Direct’s estimated shipping date of September.

Shucks. Maybe it’s a better idea to wait for the subsidized versions through AT&T and Rogers Wireless. You’re going to have to wait anyhow.
