    I was in a Sprint store today and asked a sales rep about a release date for the Bold. He said "September 1st I think." Although I'm not thrilled about that, that's not what I'm wondering about.

    He said that the Thunder is a complete touchscreen and that the Bold is a touchscreen and keypad. That struck me as odd cause I've never heard any mention about that before.

    Has anyone else heard this? Or is the guy just severly misinformed?
    I've gotta admit, I'm curious.

    For Sprint? Try Next Year and as for other carriers in US that time frame seems about right

    1. Bold is no touchscreen


    2. Sprint is in no danger of having the Bold for Sept.

    Now now now...the Sprint rep forgot to tell you that it is a September 1st, 2009 release date.

    Edit - Some Sensitive Sally will take that seriously...so for the record I was being sarcastic.

    Consider whatever date that is thrown around out there as Rumors.
    Until there is an Official release from RIM and the respective Carriers, then any supposing dates are just that. RUMORS!

    Actually, he was probably trying to get you interested in what Sprint would have for sale, knowing that it wouldn't be a Thunder.

    While this guy is wrong more than likely, it would be awesome if it was true. You would see me in line for a bold! Touchscreen, trackball, and full QWERTY! Count me in! Haha
