T-Mobile claims it will be the first UK operator to offer the handset, offering decent and improving national 3G support, thanks to a radio access network sharing deal the company has done with 3 UK.

The Bold includes integrated GPS, Microsoft Office document editing, expandable memory, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and two megapixel camera (see full specifications and a comparison with the iPhone 3G.)

T-Mobile will make the BlackBerry Bold available on their Business 1-Plan, which offers a flexible allowance of voice, data, texts, and international calls.

Available “from September”, with other UK networks expected to announce their deals in due course.
