    Question UK release of new Blackberries.... any dates yet?

    Seems like the UK carriers are being rather coy with their release dates for the 9900, 9860 & 9810 (the latter has no release date at all yet)......

    Vodafone have "coming soon" on 9860, and "pre-order" for the 9900.
    The price has been dropped for the old 9800, but no news.

    And they're not saying when they're going to release

    O2 are saying "coming soon" for 9900. NO other phones being announced.
    Same for Orange.

    Can't use 3 - I'm in the middle of nowhere

    Any UK people have some more concrete dates than "coming soon" or "pre-order"?

    I don't mind waiting, but I like to know if its days, or weeks or months...... I can then sort out my current data plan to accommodate accordingly.....

    Really interested in a 9810 right now......

    Just did a dummy run for the 9900 on Vodafone's website and it did not show them as being pre-order it looks very much like they have got stock as its showing under the Blackberry page aswell as their homepage banner.

    However the 9860 is showing in the coming soon section as stated by the OP

    Correct - it would now appear that the 9900 is available from Vodafone UK's website.
    As are other places.....

    Still no further details on the 9860, nor 9810 though

    To be honest, I really like Wifey's 9800, so was interested in the Torch 2.
    It's been confirmed by Vodafone's advisor that LATE OCTOBER will be the launch window. Bit of a wait tbh. Especially with QNX phones around the corner....

    I don't really want a Bold 9900 - but might pop into the shop to have a play with it... you never know!

    It is extremely frustrating. I am on Vodafone and been due an upgrade for 2 months now....Want to replace my 9800 with a 9860. An October release however means I might as well wait for QNXsince the latest rumors suggest that will be before year-end...arghhh

    Interestingly, Vodafone have removed the Torch 9860 from their Coming Soon page today...
    This is either really good in that the phones should be released in the next few days or really bad in that these will not be available until a few months from now...
    FYI

    Scrap that - it appears that the 9860 is now available on Vodafone: recombu.com/news/blackberry-torch-9860-hitting-vodafone-shops-this-weekend_M15005.html
    Now I need to wait until this makes it to the Upgrades section...

    Well I spoke to a salesman at Phones4U yesterday (sorry!) and his computer states that 9810 is coming for September.

    This backs up a deal that O2 are doing on the 9800 - free phone on MEGA-cheap contracts.... trying to clear out the old stock prior to the 9810 arrival??

    won't be long now I think.

    O2 have the 9900, they were in the local Marketplace with a dummy 9900 (along with other non-BlackBerry devices) last week. I spoke to the salesman to ask and they were offering an 'anytime upgrade' deal, where you pay off your current contract all in one go (if it's with them) at a slight discount and they buy your current phone, the intention is as money to use against paying it off, then issue you a new contract with the new device. I was tempted but with over a year left on the current one I knew I'd probably have a lot to pay!
