The Bold is Beautiful

AT&T, the company that was the first to offer Blackberry service has done it again with the new Blackberry Bold 9700. 

Building on the success of the original Bold model, introduced nearly one year ago, also on AT&T’s nation’s fastest 3G network. AT&T is the only U.S. carrier to offer the original BlackBerry Bold and will be among the first to offer the new BlackBerry Bold 9700. Customers can learn more about the new BlackBerry Bold 9700 by visiting

The BlackBerry Bold 9700 features a 624 MHz processor with 256 MB of Flash memory, 3.2 megapixel camera and A-GPS to provide a faster location fix in support of AT&T Navigator with real-time traffic data. The new BlackBerry Bold 9700 smartphone also features an cutting edge touch-sensitive trackpad instead of the previous trackball for quick and easy access to email, messages, your apps and more.

The BlackBerry Bold 9700 smartphone will be available in the coming weeks for $199.(With the $100 rebate offer)  I can't wait to get my hands on this new Bold and give it a try.


Kindle's Price Cut Again

The current Kindle, now called the U.S. and International Kindle had it's price dropped again.

Possibly sensing competition from the likes of Barnes & Noble, and Sony Amazon is being proactive with its pricing.  I wouldn't be surprised to see the Kindle at $199 for the holidays and refurbished Kindles at the $100 mark.

It's going to be a big season for ebook readers and everyone is trying to get their share.  The Kindle has a head start, but competition is good, and exciting.

Bloggers trying to get to bottom of Swedish Tennis Sex Scandal

The newspapers in Sweden, The United States and all over Europe and Canada have kind of dropped the ball on this one.

The two male ATP tennis players detained over the week for soliciting prostitutes in Stockholm remain a mystery.  Newspapers have pulled back from reporting on this story.  Not sure if it is because of pressure from the ATP or tournament organizers.

Thanks to the magic of the internet bloggers have been burning the midnight oil.  The tennis gossip blog; is on the trail, and you can check it out to see his theory that Ernests Gulbis is one of the players based on what reported on Swedish player Joachim Johansson's personal website.

The information and damaging statements have since been removed from Johansson's site.

HCFoo promises more investigative reporting on this story.
