    New BlackBerry devices said to be arriving at Bell before the end of August | CrackBerry.com

    Looks like there may be some truth to those rumors of a release in the 12-19th of August. There's no mention of mobile hotspot or even wifi on the 9900, so hopefully that will get sorted out soon. Also- here's hoping for a reasonable price. I'm thinking... $199 on a 3-year contract?

    I think $199 is a pretty fair guess

    HTC Sensation 4G is $149.95 on 3 Year contract
    iPhone 4 16GB is $159.95 32GB is $269.95 on 3 Year contracts

    And Rogers Wireless is all in the same price points as Bell so it is to be expected they'll do $199 as a bit of a Premium over Android devices do to the greater popularity of Blackberry in Canada over Android.

    I read this earlier on too. Waiting for Rogers to make their announcment. Come on Rogers! If I can't keep my current price plan by doing an upgrade, then I'm buying the 9900 outright. I don't want to be locked in for another 3 years if they refuse to let me keep my current plan.

    Rogers better not delay it like they did with the Torch. They also better not release it and then jack up the price (it was $50 more expensive than the Bell torch)...

    Very nice. It's my understanding that Bell is not the most accomodating carrier when it comes to renegotiating contract renewals (read: Retentions). I was seriously considering a switch to Wind or Mobilicity for the unlimited North American calling, but ultimately decided to let them call me and get a subsidized device instead. Hopefully Bell will offer something like that when it's time to renew in a few years.

    For those wondering about hotspot capability, the latest leaked OS for the 9900 includes files that appear to address WLAN HotSpot options.

    Like most Really Good Things, it will likely depend on carrier approval/service books.
