Blackberry 9000 release date (UK) 7th July - Info Required
Vodafone in the UK have stated a release date of "quote" 7th July for the bold (enterprise) and 22nd July for bold (prosumer/internet).
Having had a number of blackberrys this confuses me as I thought all the devices were the same regardless if you run them from a corporate BES server or a desktop redirector.
Is this just vodafone making perhaps limited initial stock available to its larger clients or is there a real difference on the handsets?
The devices are the same.
Vodafone reported profits of £10.1 Billion a few weeks ago!
Blackberry enterprise service makes them more money than BIS. I would imagine so they probably want to get as many business users as possible onto the Bold.
Vodafones BIS tariff is very pricey compared to the other networks. I wouldn't use them.
Like Foxglove said, it's the same device, but corporate users (Vodafone's bread-and-butter client base for BBs) will get them first, several weeks before everyone else. Most likely this is due to the initial crush of orders with a limited supply. It may also be a little "thank you" to corporate (BES) users - give them the new hotness before everyone else and let them get the admiring/jealous looks.
Spoke to Vodafone UK yesterday.
They say theres two different BB Bolds that they are gonna release. One for BIS Server and one for BES server. Something to do with different firmware configurations.
7th july for BIS
22nd july for BES
BIS version- Has Free vodafonesat nav for 1 year. sat nav provided Telcom
BES - GPS included , but not activated.
I called Rogers yesterday to ask about this June 25 release date. They said no and that it was now coming out at the end of the summer/fall time period as the Iphone will have the market for the entire summer. Anyone else been told this?
Orange told me today using their new 'chat' service, they sent me a copy of the conversation on email, August time.
Vodafone said 30th July, an email that I received yesterday 17th June.
This thread os for UK Releases, to be honest I don't care what Rogers is doing. Theres about a billion US / Canada / Worldwide threads, please let us have a UK thread.
May I suggest merging threads....
