    "He didn't say when the Monza was coming out did he???"

    Apparently they're all coming out around the same time, so if Bold Touch launches early August expect Monza and Curve/Torch upgrades to come out late August at the latest. They're not going to stagger the launches, it'll be an all at once kind of thing, no reason to sit on them when they have such stale hardware on the shelves now.

    Of course RIM could surprise us and launch the Bold Touch in late June and get everything else out in July, but that is probably wishful thinking!
    It is a worldwide release, isn't it? I thought I read it somewhere.

    Except. There is no reason to think the QNX phones will follow closely on the heels of the OS7 ones.

    Thanks for the info UGC

    Just a couple of corrections to your list...

    1) Rogers just pipped Vodafone UK to the 9700 with a release date of 3rd November 2009

    2) AT&T never got the 9780. Rogers again won, with a release date of 5th November 2010

    I knew the 9780 was only for T-Mobile I swear! Got it mixed with the 9700 I guess.

    As far as Voda, I don't mean to leave the UK or Europe in general out but I have based this all on the US only. It'd take forever to include other carriers.

    I guess I can start! It's important to look at international launches too. Thanks

    Trying to predict a device launch at this point is like trying to predict where their stock price will go.

    Right, I think predictions at this point are useless with all the variables involved. I still want to keep the thread up as a reference. You can still see that carriers have a tendency to release the same phone around the same time as each other.

    Unfortunately bugs sometimes don't show themselves until you have devices in production and fielded. Sometimes you see a bug (like the Sprint Tour bug where it wouldn't let you click on a link in the browser sometimes without moving the selector to a specific spot) and wonder how the heck it didn't get caught. I'm hopeful that now that the entire line, both GSM and CDMA, will be running the same SoC from Qualcomm that RIM will be able to manage OS changes, updates and bugs more efficiently.
    I work in the software field and your post is spot on. We don't see some bugs until the code is under load. There is no possible way to test for everything in the development/QA cycles.
