BB 9900 won't see daylight until Sep.
See this on BGR's report:
BGRBlackBerry Bold 9900 won't launch until September
So exciting! NOT!

It would have been nice to release soon but it's RIM's style to leak a device very early and then by the time it gets here many are over it and of course so many other devices that will make the specs look even more outdated. It's unfortunate because this was a nice look device but by Sept I know I won't be thinking about this.

You know, sometimes it's hard not to agree with the rest of the world when RIM continues to fumble their products around.
They have had hits and they have had misses, like any company. But lately it's been more misses than hits and as a fan I am getting a little.... I dunno... tired of the same story. Delay, delay, not quite ready etc.
People are screaming for a new phone and os and they just can't get things together. It's frustrating.

This is typical RIM, I doubt you will see this before september which is a pretty big blunder. And those talking about a playbook 2? I wouldn't expect a new model until atleast spring 2012. It doesn't make sense that they would be working on a 2nd version when they are still scrambling to get the BB and Android players out, not to mention the native email client.
RIM needs to focus it's efforts better then this, they should be realistically be releasing one new device every 4 months. This shouldn't be hard if they stagger the releases of the Bold Touch, Curve, Monaco, Torch 2. They only need 4 devices (High end qwerty, low end querty, touch only device and touch slider) there is little to no market for the pearl or Style. If they consentrated on there key devices maybe they could get stuff released within 6 months of announcing it.
At this point it seems stupid that they didn't move right to QNX, the hardware is ready and that was the reason they gave for not moving to QNX.

I honestly don't know why people insist on linking BGR anti-RIM propaganda here on CrackBerrry.
I'll believe there is a delay when I hear it directly from RIM. So far the official word from RIM is still a summer release.

Did anyone else notice the comment about there now being an OS7.5 before QNX for phones? This is new, and very significant.
The thing that disturbs me is the sudden, erratic nature of the shifts. Seems like there's no captain of the RIM ship, and if there is they really don't have a handle on things. First the marketing sucked, then the vision, now the execution.
Definitely calls for a leadership change. I would fire one of our team leads if they operated this way. Nothing vindictive, no one's a bad person, but this is just not the way to get results.

Someone wrote it on the internet so it MUST be true right??? WRONG!!!! We don't know when the 99XX is coming, other than what RIM has said which is sometime this summer. BGR has an agenda, and that is getting views, and this blog I'm sure will do that quite nicely. Is it true? Who knows????
