RIM’s Blackberry Bold 9650 which was leaked last week, has been confirmed to be releasing online tomorrow on Verizon priced at $149.99 . The pricing is after a $100 mail-in-rebate when you go in for a new two year contract. The phone should be hitting the shelves in retail stores on June 10th.

The BlackBerry Bold 9650 is basically an upgrade on the existing Tour design with added WiFi.

The smartphone still sports a 3.2 megapixel camera with LED flash and autofocus, 480×360 display and GPS connectivity found in last year’s Blackberry Tour. A new addition would be the ability to upgrade to Blackberry OS 6.0 once it is out on Verizon. The QWERTY phone is has EVDO Rev.A and 2100MHz UMTS/HSDPA connectivity for global roaming.

Also included is the VZ Navigator, push-to-talk support and a microSD slot preloaded with a 2GB card. The 1400 mAhr battery is said to be good for upto 5 hours of CDMA talktime. A non-camera version of the phone will also be available for order online beginning June 3.

You will receive the $100 mail-in rebate in the form of a debit card, which can be used anywhere debit cards are accepted. VZW customers will need to subscribe to a Nationwide Talk plan or Nationwide Talk & Text plan and an Email and Web for Smartphone plan. Nationwide Talk plans begin at $39.99 monthly access. Email and Web for Smartphone plans start at $29.99 for unlimited monthly access.
