SO How Much will 9700 Cost?
Now that we have est. arrive time for Onyx on att- around November. How much will 9700 cost for 2 year contract? Do you think att will charge $299 like they did with the Bold?
I hope $199, and NOT $299. There is only good thing about the iPhone is that it can keep other smartphone prices in check at $200.

It will likely be the 9700, and the same price as the bold when launched.~S_A

It will be the 9700. The Tour is 9630, they have to one up them. $299 most likely. Its so funny crackberrians always fall into this hysteria over a pending device, then when it comes out and has minor flaws (like all technology) it gets bashed.You would have to pry my BB from my cold dead hands!!!!

oops I meant 9700.
Before Bold RIM was 98% business. When the Bold came out RIM was just beginning to expand into the average consumer market. Now that everyone agrees that RIM is in the same waters as iPhone they would release a device at $300?

Free in the UK on contract, on pretty much all networks that will launch with it, if you pick a high enough (30GBP-35GBP per month) tariff
Sim free I'd guess around the £500 mark or there abouts

I'm glad I did nt jump head long for the tour now, much as I thought it luked good, I will patiently await the 9700 and with s2 hopefully out around the same time I will have pair of good phones, and retire my 2storms that are begining to serve me well.

I hope it's $199, seriously. I don't think I could afford $299 dollars right now. Plus, my 8320 just got dunked in water. I need a phone, a BB, for $199 and I want it to be the Driftwood/Onyx.R. Morrison

$300 at launch for sure. Get ready for it folks. It will be so. On a side note, $100 isn't that big of a difference. I spend more per month on cigars and brew! Looks like I'll have to cut back for a few months.IT IS WHAT IT IS!!!

considering the bold is $400 with a $100 MIR and the 8900 is $299 with a $100 MIR i think they should drop the curve 8900 by a $100 and make the 9700 $299 with a $100 MIR

Really looking forward to moving to this phone when it comes out.
Present: iPhone 4, 9700 Bold, PlayBook
Priors: Curve 8700, Flip 8220, Curve 8900, Tour 9630, iPhone 3GS.
Logical reasoning beats ignorance.
I'd agree with you but then I'd be wrong.

Full retail, I'm not sure. Right now full retail for 9000 is $649 (Rogers). It stands to reason that when new devices are released, the predecessor is generally given a price cut, normally by $50 or $100. I will hazard to guess that Rogers will drop the 9000 price to $599 and 9700 will be $699 off contract.I beta tested your boyfriend
