BlackBerry Bold Vs BlackBerry Storm: US launch race
The BlackBerry Bold 9000 has landed in Spain, Japan and Indonesia and many other countries, but unfortunately its hit a problem with its launch date stateside, the Bold 900 was suppose to launch on Thursday in the US but that is not looking likely. An internal memo from AT&T the smartphones exclusive carrier stated its training sessions for the BlackBerry Bold had been cancelled and that they are still unsure of the launch date.
The At&T memo stated “As you are aware, with the anticipated launch of the 3G AT&T BlackBerry Bold, RIM has committed to hold training sessions in over 40 cities. A large number of these sessions were to take place this and next week. Due to the continued uncertainty of the device launch date, we will work with RIM to reschedule these sessions to a later date,” the letter reads. “Any representatives that have registered will be informed by e-mail of the schedule change. No action is required from your part.”
Research in motion, the brains behind the BlackBerry 3G Bold have apparently delayed the US launch, and this time it’s to do with operating system and software issues. The BlackBerry Bold 9000 is expected to run the next generation of BlackBerry’s OS. We heard that the release of the Bold in the US was to be long before the release of the BlackBerry Storm, So your guess is as good as mine as to when we will actually see the Bold stateside.
