It's official: BlackBerry Bold hits AT&T on November 4 for $299.99

The hopes and dreams for a "summer release" have long since faded, but at least AT&T's finally agreed to a hard date for the hotly-anticipated Bold: November 4. The news comes courtesy of the company's earnings call -- not the most obvious place to slip in news this big -- but at least it's coming straight from the horse's mouth.

Update: And the press release just slipped out, too -- $299.99 on a two-year contract. Yikes!
