AT&T and T-Mobile set to get the BlackBerry Bold 2?

According to reports from Engadget and Phone Arena, it’s possible AT&T’s exclusivity with the BlackBerry Bold is coming to an end. Word is T-Mobile and AT&T will both announce the BlackBerry 9700 Bold 2 on Oct. 21 – making the Bold 2 T-Mobile’s first 3G BlackBerry device. There isn’t much change on the second go ‘round for this device. The 9700 has a trackpad in place of the staple BlackBerry trackball, an upgraded 3.2-megapixel camera, improved screen resolution and, potentially, gets early dibs on the 5.0 OS that should be coming out for the original Bold later this year. Maybe AT&T decided to let go of the Bold exclusivity to free up some more money to keep the iPhone? Either way, how many of you AT&T and T-Mobile users out there have got your eye on the Bold 2?
