Among RIM’s new BlackBerrys, the Bold 9900 is easily in the running for being the most desired; being the thinnest BlackBerry to date, we hardly have to wonder why. The 9900 officially hits Canada today, and we’re expecting to see it on US carriers later this month. The States will also be seeing its CDMA twin, the Bold 9930, come to carriers like Verizon and Sprint. We’ve seen a picture of the Bold booting-up with Verizon’s logo, and now we can check out what the 9930 will look like on Sprint, starring here in a nice, crisp render.
There’s nothing surprising about the Bold we’re seeing here, but this is still the first glimpse we’ve gotten of the 9930 decked-out for operation on Sprint. Back in June we saw a leaked copy of a Sprint roadmap covering the release of many smartphones up through the month of September. Even if we were sure the list was accurate back then, which we’re not, those dates could easily have been revised in the two months since. All the same, that leak has the Bold 9930 down for an August 21 release. Until we hear otherwise, be on the lookout for the 9930 to come to Sprint sometime around the end of the month.
