Will also be adding Curve 8520 to lineup


Finally, we have received the long-awaited information on the availability date for the upcoming release of the BlackBerry Bold 9700 on AT&T. Sources tell us that starting today, business customers will start to be able to get access to the 9700 with some enterprise accounts saying that reps have called them to let them know that they can start ordering it. We also have reports that the 9700 is on the business Premier site for ordering, as well.

As of individual account holders, the 9700 should be available in all AT&T corporate stores on November 22nd at a price of $199 with a two-year contract. We hear rumblings that some AT&T resellers will also have the 9700 for sale on the 22nd of November.

In addition to the news on the Bold 9700, AT&T has announced that they will be also offering the Curve 8520, which is the GSM version of the 8530 that Verizon and Sprint previously announced. According to the whispers that we hear, the 8520 will be arriving in the weeks ahead. The price for this one is set to be $99 after rebate with a two-year agreement, but we hear that the 8520 will require that a monthly data plan be part of the deal.

The 8520’s big features are the addition of the trackpad and Wi-Fi support. Beyond this, the 8520 will come pre-loaded with the BlackBerry Facebook and My Space applications, as the company will try to push the 8520’s appeal to the younger crowd with the included social networking applications. Unlike the Bold series, the 8520 offers Edge, but no 3G support.
