Judging by the date of the event, it is later than the rumor launch date (june 25th)

Was there a case in the past that the launch event date is later than its actual release date? If not, I guess Roger will release Bold sometime in July then. Any guess?

Thanks for the info . I guess that is a good move for Roger to launch Bold before iphone2 by stealing the thunder from potential buyers of these two phones.

btw, this doesnt mean that the bold will be launched after july, doesnt mean i was wrong about the 25th either, as the rogers 8700 was released about 2-3 weeks before the launch party... so they could just be doing the same with this

Yep, this just indicates that the device is coming "soon". Soon is a very relative term.

Well I cannot even go that far. I have had a device in my hand, more than 2 months ago, and its still not released.

AT&T is just as bad with releasing products by the way. Funny noone has heard anything from DoCoMo

LOL! ^ both are true (sith and SoUnCool), only time will tell, the 25th is in 2 days we will find out real soon! but as i was saying, i have had around 8-10 confirmations (all from different sources) that it will be released on the 25th, silent or not

I have also seen the date of the 25th multiple times. I do not believe that AT&T will release it, and i do not think Vodafone will release it on that date. With Rogers "possibly" delaying until July, we must look to the fourth carrier that will release at first.

I could not more totally agree with you on this subject. Though we BB fans love our BBs, it is ridiculous to think some device like the Bold or even the Thunder will crush the iPhone. And the reverse is true as well. Those who are entrenched in RIM products will stick with RIM. I would love to have a touchscreen BB, but am not sure I am willing to give up the functionality I have in my Curve, thus the situation for many.

It is nice to see what competition does for us the consumer...more, improved, and varied cell phones!! Go for it!

I second this! What a silly thing to have to constatly endure arguments about in these forums. Who cares if one device "kills the other"? Isn't there enough room in our consumer-electronic-device-hungry society for RIM and Apple products? Doesn't competition in the marketplace ultimately benefit all of us users?

I guess if you are the kind of guy who gets into pithy arguments at the bar with other guys about "who's smartphone is better", then this is really important to you. I would rather talk to the attractive woman that you guys are ignoring while you bicker about your phones ;)

I still don't expect it to become available in July maybe first week in August. Just a gut feeling; but I'll be pleasantly surprised. This summer is going to be a BUSY season for those in BB Tech at Rogers.
