    no. the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 were announced last week at BlackBerry World.

    Most likely to launch in mid/late summer (August). Then shortly after there'll be the new Torch, new full touchscreen device and new Curve. Probably will see all four launch within 6 weeks of each other assuming things stay on course. I think RIM is aiming to have everything hit for "back to school" season... so hopefully more if it is august/early september... but i could see it taking till late september/early october for everything new to be out. But they're aiming to get everything pushed out as soon as possible.

    The "new line" you might have heard about is the new Bold Touch and Storm3.

    The only announced the Bold Touch "official" because, they made some Storm3
    hardware improvements.

    No one knows for sure. There is NO official release date.

    Just take a few minutes and read what has been happening around here.

    I wouldn't bank on any phone released without QNX to be upgradeable to QNX

    Bold Touch 9900/9930 will be the new one. I'll likely be sporting a 9780 if my trusty 9700 kicks the bucket.

    I am looking forward to getting my hands on the new Bold and full touch screen from BB, RIM and Verizon need to hurry, I need a need phone as well to replace the Tour 9630.

    My kids have had Droids and now IPhones 4's, and with more new LTE phones hitting the market.... I really like google software, the I phone is a perfect size... but I really like my BB.

    Come on RIM, release this product!!

    QNX phone is stated by Jim B. on last earnings conf call to be Q1 2012 - that means April 2012 at the earliest - 11 months away at best.

    By April 2012, the competitive landscape will be Galaxy S3 (Quad cores), Galaxy S2(Dual cores), iPhone 4GS, iPhone 5, Nokia dual/quad cores WP8, HTC ???

    Bold Touch has been rumored for how long? does OS 7 have a future in multi-cores platforms?? Low costs Android phones will be flooding the market late 2011 and early 2012. What if an iPhone mini becomes a reality, an entry level iOS device selling at $50-99 with contracts?!

    As posted before, RIM needs to have a plan of leveraging existing loyal base, but transition out of the hardware arms races, RIM's hardware design and manufacturing teams have failed in competing in the all-touch devices.

    QNX must have an alternative growth path to establish a thriving eco-system or else QNX and RIM's future will be marginalized - it seems like Jim & Mike are ok with that direction at the moment. Will secure email and texting remain the exclusive features of BB forever?

    I love QNX (been hacking it since late 80's) - and want to see QNX/TAT shine and kick butts and take names against iOS and Android. RIM do not spend another year on a QNX phone, the market windows will no longer there for you.

    Until then, why not wipe (using BBSAK), reload the OS (after making a backup) on your 9630 to renew and refresh it back up to speed? Or try a battery pull. Either way, it speeds it up. Gotta love that good ol' trackball

    QNX is the operating system used on the playbook and next years handhelds hopefully.

    QNX Realtime Operating System (RTOS) software, middleware, development tools and services for superior embedded design
