    Ran across a sprint bb on phonearena.com labeled as the 9930 Bold. That stuff was posted in March and the phone looks VERY similar to the torch. Anyone have any more info??

    Rumors say the 9900 became the 9800 so I would imagine any 9930 will now have become a 9830 and would be a CDMA Torch. Since ATT helped develop the phone, it may be a while (if ever) that you see a CDMA twin to the 9800. Something similar, maybe. Just too much up in the air at the moment.

    Googled the 9830 and ran across this

    BlackBerry Device Roundup: 9830 And 9930 On The Horizon From RIM? | GizmoFusion

    It suggests the 9830 will be a storm 3 (not to be confused with the storm refresh 2.5). On phonearena they call the 9930 a bold so I'd guess they're different phones.

    At sprint store today they suggested a torch-like device would be coming... Taken with grain of salt but I liked hearing that.

    Nice find, but I don't see where is explicitly states that they are not talking about the refresh. Granted, you can guess that the 9930 number is a different device as we expect the refresh to hit as a 9570 or 9590. Still, if RIM really wants to make the refresh SEEM to be enough of an upgrade, they may depart from the 95xx numbers. Just thinking.

    So I just got off the phone with rim due to a non related issue and managed to get this out of the guy I was talking to:

    There is going to be a 9930 called the Bold
    It will come out of the box with os 6
    It is a "torch like device"
    And it will be available for purchase "before the launch of the new year"

    Omgomgomgomgomg.

    lol, i'm with ya... that means in like 3 months, we may have it...I can wait three months...just gonna keep replacing my faulty tours in the meantime. Definately not going to use my upgrade for a Bold just yet, unless it is confirmed that the Torch isn't coming. I definately want a phone that will support OS6 though soon...so, hopefully it will be the 9930...positive thoughts, positive thoughts, positive thoughts.

    Interesting. Nice to come to cb today and hear something about a new phone headed Verizon's way. The Torch on Verizon might make me consider ditching the Tour if it is LTE ready.

    I am really wondering why RIM is being so quiet. With so many other smartphone options out there you have to be constantly making "noise" to stay relevant. Maybe RIM should take a page from Apple's playbook and leave a 4g bb on a subway right next to a tech blogger or something...

    I just hope they up the battery on it. The 1150 can work on a gsm device....but get that baby on cdma and its dead quick. Just like the vzw pre vs the att pre.

    I ran into Dan Hesse about a week ago, He said that there would be a new device in October, said it was not like a torch, but wouldn't give me much more info than that.

    I am like this close to getting the TMobile G2 for my birthday next week. The word is out to my kids but I am really torn about leaving BB for Android. I really love the form factor of the G2 and was hoping that BB was coming out with a side slider, processor and internal memory similar to the G2 with OS 6. I would jump on that like a heart beat. Someone posted earlier as to why RIM is being so quite, I agree. A clam shell (nice) or a beefed up bold is nice but not enough to keep me using my BB as a primary phone. I will take my 8900 and replace my work BB 8310. What is really disturbing is that none of my kids want my 8900 and their ages range from 9, 14, 17, 20, 26, 28, 30. Maybe the 14 year old because he is desperate, the 9 year old doesn't count because he isn't getting one anyway. lol I would love the Torch but I don't think it really compares to the G2. Someone talk some reason into me, is there hope in waiting for a real flagship BB to take the lead?

    Okay, I've got an issue with this. Its got the model number: 9930 the carrier: sprint and the fact that its a slider all in one add for a car charger.

    My questions are where did he get them from and where's his proof they're for the 9930. Who's buying them and why do they want something for the 9930. He's got 99% ratings with a crapton of purchases.

    no need to post these links anymore..the guy has no idea he just finds rumors of possible upcoming phones and then lists a charger that will work with any micro usb blackberry/phone saying it is for that phone..hes not the only one that does it

    I've forwarded it to a friend in the fraud department of paypal and **** be getting back to me later this evening.

    So far he's told me that it looks like rim has released the sale of 9930 items because it was supposed to be released later this year but the play book has taken over. Rim has already dismissed the style. The play book will be out before Christmas and the Bold 9930 will be out later this year.

    As I said references will be posted later tonight when I get my hands on them.


    Edit: turns out he has no proof of this it was speculation based on the good information but it is not available to the public.

    I'm not sure how someone from paypal would know anything about RIM's unreleased products? If a 9930 was coming out this year I'm sure we would've heard something about it by now.
