Still don't know what to think about the name. I know they are going with the whole name thing, but Bold? I personally like 9000 better but like it really matters. It will be in my hand release day

But it's spelled BlackBerry Bold, so Triple B would work.

Personally I am more of a fan of the numbering scheme over the names. However since these devices are gaining more consumer appeal the naming scheme makes sense. BBB is kind of catchy.

blackberrybold.com now redirects to http://www.blackberry.com/blackberrybold/ and the domain record has been updated with CSC's nameservers. I'm sure we'll see a website online for it in the next 15 hours.

Wirelessly posted (Verizon 8830)

I am glad the models are being upgraded at a faster rate. Thank you IPhone for forcing the Blackberry World to step up their game.

don't worry, im sure they paid some marketing firm $250,000 probably to come up with the "bold" moniker.
