    Well probably because of the worldwide Blackberry server crash many people missed this recent news article which to me still is kinda striking:

    RIM to revise Bold 9900 already

    Reason for refresh is unclear at best

    The recently released BlackBerry Bold 9900 is evidently getting a refresh. Whispers tell us that RIM is already busy working on the refresh, but the actual reason for such a revision to the 9900 is unclear; however, the form factor of the unit should not change.

    We know that the initial launch of the Bold 9900 was delayed due to an issue with the main circuit board, and it might be that RIM is addressing this issue. Some whispers suggest that the revision to the 9900 was necessary to address a carrier request, but again it is unknown if this is the case. A more hopeful rumor suggests that RIM might be revising the camera to include auto-focus support, which we do not believe is going to happen.

    The 9900 has been successful for RIM, so it is hard to believe that the company would want to make many changes to the device. However, the fact that some carriers like AT&T have yet to add the 9900 to their lineup clearly means that something is amiss that is delaying the carrier from adding the 9900. Right now, we have to think that this could be nothing more than a revision to the product to get the cost down per device, but we will stick with this story, as we expect the reason to surface soon.

    I live in The Netherlands, Europe and recently purchased my Blackberry Bold 9900 in the beginning of october. Now that there's rumors the 9900 will get improved internally with an autofocus function for the camera aswell I feel kinda let down by RIM and also a bit deceived. If I knew an improved version of the 9900 would come out in a time span of 2 months I would have waited. Now I just feel like owning a downgraded Bold 9900 if there's an improved one coming soon.

    Any thoughts on this?

    Has RIM ever done anything that quickly? I think that you are OK keeping what you have.

    Truth is spoken in this post.

    In all seriousness, knowing RIM's past, I think your okay. Even if they have some form of a "revision" you can probably expect it as late as this time next year.

    Correct me if I am wrong but I have read on other threads that the reason why AT&T hasn't released the 9900 yet is because they wanted to push out the new iPhone out first.
