Yes and no. At first it will be, but by the end of the year, it will be available on other carriers. At least according to RIM.

AT&T can say they are the exclusive until that period runs out, but they are smart enough to not say when it begins or ends. I'm just glad they are announcing it. Luckily for them they are not fighting against any other carrier for at least 4 years on the iPhone side so they can release the BB Bold sooner rather than later and leave RIM to just try and get the T-Mo version out the door.

Since the Bold is listed on AT&Ts website, I hope that means that it will be released very soon.

This is fantastic! Does anyone know whether we canadians will be able to buy this device, unlock it, and bring in back to Rogers?

That should save a few months at least I would think considering the previous delays that Blackberry has experienced rolling out new products in their home country.

No release dates have been announced. Nothing but rumors.

Yeah ... true. The only thing that is certain though, is that it is coming to AT&T very soon. When the 8820 showed up on the corporate page like that it was released a month (or less?) later. But I admit, basing release date on a trend is not certainty, but its closer than the other carrier release dates.

Trumpeting it's arrival and not releasing it relatively soon after doesn't make much sense. I know Apple did that with iPhone, but that's a whole other animal. I'd bet we'll be seeing a release date for end of next month.

(Okay, I hope we'll be seeing a release date for the end of next month.)

I am pretty certain it will come within a month. That's how it was for the 8820 when I purchased that one for my mom. But I cannot say it will happen with 100% certainty. More like 90 to 95% just to give room for error. Lol

I heard this too. The fact that AT&T aleady listed the Bold on the corporate page, the email to all store employees not to take vacation as a hint of a large June release, and the lack of any info from Apple, tells me that maybe the Bold will be released before iPhone 2 in June.

I hope I am right. I wanted the Bold anyhow.

if the iphone isnt on the coporate site yet then i doubt it will be luanched before the BOLD... IMHO RIM has more more then apple in the telecommunication industry and i'm sure has way more say then apple, and has probably paid AT&T to release it before the iPhone
