I’ve been getting a lot of questions on twitter and email about the new Blackberry with people on carriers other than Optus keen to get the 9900. Well, the idea of the exclusive period is of course to lure you over to Optus in this case.

However, if that’s not to your liking and you’re a Vodafone customer – you’ll be pleased to know the Blackberry Bold 9900 will be available through Vodafone in the coming weeks, by Mid-October I’m told – so, Sit tight – it’s close!
