While many of you may be wondering why anyone would want a non-camera version of the Bold 9930, the fact remains that many companies do not want their employees using them. Verizon launched their camera and non-camera versions on the same day, but Sprint is now just getting set to release theirs on September 9th. The option for companies to select a non-camera version of a smartphone that can easily be connected to their enterprise servers is something that has always been a pro of going with a BlackBerry. Many manufacturers do not cater to this option with new devices, and it is good to see that RIM is continuing in the tradition that made them the enterprise smartphone of choice.
The one thing that has surprised me is that there is no price difference between the non-camera 9930 and the regular model. It seems to me that Sprint could have dropped the price by even $50 and made more of an impact with this one. Regardless of how we feel you will be able to get a non-camera Bold 9930 as of September 9th from Sprint for the not so low price of $249.99 on contract.
