Manufacturer Research in Motion unveiled the Bold 9000's follow-up yesterday, but as far as a UK launch date goes said only that it would be released at some point next month.

Expansys has, however, already begun accepting advance orders for the Bold 9700, which it has priced at a VAT and postage inclusive price of £422 ($696/€465) SIM free.

RIM’s Bold 9700 measures 109 x 60 x 14.1mm, has a 2.4in “light-sensing display” and a rear-mounted 3.2Mp camera.

In terms of connectivity, the handset supports 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, HSDPA 3G and Bluetooth. The 9700 can also access BlackBerry App World, RIM's answer to Apple's iTunes App Store. ®
