In case you haven’t heard by now, AT&T and RIM have officially announced that the BlackBerry Bold will be released Tuesday after next on Nov. 4th.

As expected, the AT&T BlackBerry Bold will retail for $299 with a 2-year contract. This is 50% more than the iPhone. I don’t think that the Bold was really ever intended to compete with the iPhone but I would still like to know what you think about the $300 price tag?
