BlackBerry Bold available for pre-order from Best Buy

Research In Motion's BlackBerry Bold has had quite a torturous run-up to its launch. When AT&T announced its earnings last week, the company said that the phone would be available Nov. 4 for $299.99 with a two-year service contract and after rebates.

Now, if customers do not want to wait, they can pre-order the phone through Best Buy. The big box retailer is allowing pre-orders of the phone contract-free, and said it will ship within one to two weeks. The price: $659.99.
