Rumor has it that the BlackBerry Bold will finally make it’s debut in the United States launching on AT&T September 12th with a price tag of $299. This is based on a tips from store employees.

Most rumors had it coming out in the first half of the month so this sounds about right. I guessed that the AT&T BlackBerry Bold would costs 300 bucks although I had hoped that they would stick a $199 price tag on it to remove the objection that the iPhone is cheaper.

I still think that it will sell like mad to business users and existing BlackBerry users and even do pretty well with new consumers. You just can’t beat texting with a physical keyboard.

Let’s hope that RIM beats Apple to the punch with a BlackBerry Slider.
