Cellphones: RIM Denies Blackberry Bold Delays, But It's Still Hitting in August

That is from RIM's mouth. Looks like this site and others need to quit relying on Boy Genius for "reliable" news. No delays, never were any delays and August is the planned release date.

EDIT: Go to Betanews in that link and you get this quote:

"But in speaking with BetaNews last night, Van Drunen denied any knowledge of overheating problems. "I don't know where that's coming from at all, but it's probably from somewhere in the blogosphere," according to Van Drunen."

For the comment on "Why bash BGR and listen to these blogs?", well to me Gizmodo and Betanews are news sites, and even if you consider them blogs, they actually got news from RIM, not just "from a source". To me in my opinion, if you can't quote your source, it is not news, but rumor. Just my opinion.
