T-Mobile will launch the BlackBerry Bold in the UK next month

T-Mobile claims this plan offers a “flexible allowance of voice, data, texts and international calls”.

RIM unveiled the Bold earlier this year, but very little has been said about the phone since. However, Register Hardware did previously report that the phone was expected to land in Blighty this summer.

The BlackBerry Bold supports 850/1900/2100MHz GSM/GPRS/Edge networks and has integrated GPS, alongside 802.11 a/b/g Wi-Fi. Emails can be sent and received during phone calls.

A slot for SD/SDHC memory cards of up to 16GB is included, although the phone has 1GB of on-board storage. A two-megapixel camera with a 5x digital zoom is also featured.

T-Mobile hasn’t released any pricing information yet.
