Vodafone UK Stores BlackBerry Bold 9900 Dummies: Release Date Mystery

The new upcoming BlackBerry Bold 9900 (Touch) release date is still a mystery, but Vodafone has started to receive its dummies in UK stores, surely this means the release is coming soon.

We have already mentioned that the unlocked handset could get a possible August release, we suspect it will see a late August or possible early September release, time will tell as they say. We are on the notification email list with Vodafone so we are hoping to hear something soon from them.

The picture below courtesy of crackberry.com shows off the dummy case, surely this means since Vodafone UK stores are receiving the dummy cases of the Bold 9900 the release should not be too far off now, we will keep you update on this one. Please join me Mark Chubb on Facebook, Twitter or my Google+ profile for instant updates.

BlackBerry Bold 9900 Recap: This is a great handset with the main features including a 1.2 Ghz processor, 2.8-inch touchscreen and full QWERTY keypad, HD video recording and Powered by BlackBerry 7 operating system.

If you visit Vodafone UK you can register for updates, as soon as we find out more we will let you know.

If the Blackberry Bold 9900 release date turns out to be late August or early September it would be very close to the iPhone 5 release date, the new Apple smartphone is expected to release in the US September 5 and in the UK October 5, now not one to out my head on the chopping block but the customers would no doubt favour the iPhone 5, this would surely mean lack of attention for the RIM BlackBerry smartphone.

We have started a poll below so that you can stay interactive, the simple question we are asking is “Would you rather buy the BlackBerry Bold 9900 or the Apple iPhone 5?”
