    And a 10" Playbook coming for holiday season... BGR getting quite the scoops these days for sure - very disappointed the phones will be so delayed but thats RIM for ya... what will the competitive market look like by the time the next gen phones hit - the gap is clearly widening by the month!!!

    Hopefully with the delay RIM is planning on making the phones better. I am thinking of two things in particular.

    1) The ability to be upgraded to the QNX OS in 2012
    2) 4G

    The phone hardware isn't still being developed... You can't slap a brand new chipset or radio in there a couple months before the release.

    August is pretty laughable if the phone stays the same spec wise, and it will, so yeah commence laughter.

    "This information is unconfirmed, but we have been told that the just-announced BlackBerry Bold 9900 / 9930 won’t be launching until mid-August at the earliest."

    its still a rumor, we dont know anything for sure
    and bgr with their "we have been told"

    even tho they've been right about some stuff lately, bgr isnt really a site i'd count on when it comes to accuracy

    Thats what I was thinking, they would have to start all over again for the internals of the phone.

    Well, if you guys think QNX is coming out in 2012 you are most likely gonna get it in late 2012 or early 2013

    I'm not due for an upgrade until September. As long is it isn't out any later than that ...


    I don't care.




    Oh yeah ... ditto for QNX in 2012.

    This company is in trouble with news like this, what a terrible disappointment.
    This is not news, this is a Rumor. And if news of a 10" tablet is bad, what is good around here?

    If they take a few more months with the phones, I'm all for it. I want the best product available from RIM. They will make me happy no matter what.

    Well BGR does say it's unconfirmed so there's a chance it is wrong though they've been pretty spot on.

    I seriously doubt they'd be holding off releasing the Bold Touch until mid-August, after building this device as it's flagship device...it is very possible that worldwide and local carriers may not see the Bold 9900/9930 until mid-August, but with Sprint just sending out a mail ad having BOTH Curve 3G and the Style for FREE now with 2yr contract or upgrade, seems to me they're clearing the decks for the new Bold Touch 9930 for $199.00 and if you see the Bold 9650 for $99.00 anytime soon, then that will be a REALLY good sign the Bold 9930 will be coming early summer

    Although it's unconfirmed, can someone see this as something that wouldn't happen?

    I'm all for that, but the bold touch should be released in june latest then others delayed as what we really want is qnx on our handhelds not os7. The 9900 is a placeholder until qnx can be launched, but if that is delayed to august its utterly ridiculous when you have the sgs2 just released with the ip5 in september. Increased competition for the 9900 when if they release soon they rope people in on bb rather than migrating

    Maybe. BGR release has to do with a particular carrier or a uk or europe release

    No. Its already running very fluidly on the PlayBook and they have stated that its not very hard to put it on a phone. Probably summer 2012 after BB World there will be QNX phones.

    and as for this rumor. I'm not too sure why it would be delayed. It was running very fast in all of the demos we have seen but who knows

    Honestly, with QNX still being very infantile in it's level of maturity, I would rTher have the ultimate bb os (7) NOW and Another tablet later. I use my bb far more than the pb or even my computer.

    I cannot wait until August. My Storm 9530 needs a battery pull at least once a day. I really wanted the Monaco and have been eligible for an upgrade for 4 months. I was thinking I could be happy with the Bold Touch, but if that isn't coming until August, I'm going to go to Waterloo and kick someone in the nuts. I love my PlayBook but they need to halt any work on the rumored 10" version if it is in any way impacting the new phones from coming out. I cannot even fathom how RIM could wait a year or more after the Torch to release a single new phone. I'm just going to pretend I never read this rumor for my own sanity.

    I seriously doubt it. They are two completely different OSes and likely it's not even the same teams involved with each one. For the carrier approval process they would also be unrelated.

    How can devices with no launch date be delayed anyway?
