    When the new iPhone 3G was released to the public, hundreds and maybe thousands of people waited in line for it. Some of the unlucky ones waited in line just to hear that it was sold out. Do you think it would be like this for the Blackberry Bold for AT&T?

    I wouldn't think so. A large majority of RIM's demographic is still business users.

    Very true. But I'm glad RIM is adding more multimedia to their devices now!

    Yes. But the bold is not being marketed as a media device. That would most likely be the burden of the thunder/storm.

    I think it may sell out but I don't expect any lines.

    I don't think the launch can really be compared with that of the iPhone as it looks as if the Bold will be released on different days by each carrier... and of course SIM free/unlocked models will also be available.

    Like a lot of the above posters, I reckon there will be enough out there to supply the initial demand, and I can't really see any lines outside the stores.

    Definitely no line... at least if you are comparing it to the iPhone.

    They may sell out in some channels.
