    @n4bb is reporting that BBM 6.0 is going to be official in AppWorld for OS 7 on July 27th.

    I think this might actually help the odds of VZW to get a phone on the 28th or there soon after.

    Thoughts?

    I was just going to post this myself. RIM never does anything ahead of time so there has to be a legit reason for this lol.

    THhis just made my day, lmao, why would RIM release a new BBM for app world for a new OS that wasn't released? By this, it could be assumed that the BlackBerry Bold will release this month after all!

    Okay......... NOW I'm excited

    A bunch of people were saying the 28th of July was the big release date, but had no evidence or reasoning behind it really.. This is some good evidence.. I hope it's true [:

    What I don't understand is this though.. I am in BlackBerry Betazone and they have BBM 6 in there so why is this BBM6 going to only be released for 7.0 devices if I currently have it running on my Bold 9650? Someone care to explain? :/

    a video i watch the other day said bbm 6.0 work on all previous devices so maybe this is just getting it out there and more tested before the new os7 phones come out

    Yeah, that's kinda how I'm leaning towards too.. The post from N4BB says otherwise though so I am just hoping and going with them

    I do find the N4BB tweet strange in that it indicates BBM 6 will be released for OS7. Doesn't OS7 come with BBM 6 already installed? Could an update be required so quickly?

    I don't think the 9930 is coming July 28th... I think its too good to be true to be honest.

    Its merely going to turn out to be a tease

    theoretically yes, as if RIM has already started shipping units to distribution warehouses, they could well have lets say a 2 week old version on there, and something has been done in the `offical release` one. purely theory though

    If you carefully read the statement, it doesn't mean what we hope it means I'm afraid.

    It's 'scheduled' to release with BBOS7, we know that. The only date that is given is the date that it's available on App World. So, if you take it in parts it's

    a) It will release as part of OS7 (whenever that is)
    b) It will release standalone on AppWorld on July 27th

    Hopefully I'm wrong!

    Please be advised that BlackBerry Messenger 6.0 for BlackBerry smartphones is scheduled to release as part of BlackBerry 7 OS and will be available in BlackBerry App World™ storefront on July 27, 2011.”

    I still find it hard to believe that this phone is about to launch in a week on the biggest carrier in the USA yet nothing has been leaked yet. I just don't think its happening...though of course I'm hoping that I'm wrong.

    Agreed. Best kept secret in recent history with these carriers and RIM if this is the case. I too hope that we're wrong and people's lips (and camera phones) have been locked down pretty tightly!

    August 3.

    Why?

    February 3, 1961 is Jim Balsillie's birthday. February 3, 1985 is my birthday.

    August 3, 2011 is his 50.5 birthday. August 3, 2011 is my 25.5 birthday.

    Its RIM's gift to us.






    kidddding....who knows when its coming out.

    Yeah, I agree, it just doesn't seem logical however, it's possible as there are things pointing to the release.
