Couldnt find the post on BG site except for this:
"Honestly, havenxxx8217;t we had enough already? Giz, you donxxx8217;t want it with the kid, I promise. I never said it was delayed, ever. I said it had major issues as any device four to five months out should! Never, ever, did I mention a delay of any sort. Instead, I actually repeated my previous scoop saying itxxx8217;s on track for the same time frame we reported before. Please take a minute and re-read yesterdayxxx8217;s post again before complicating things and putting words in our mouths. Youxxx8217;re wrong. And youxxx8217;re wrong about the name, too. Bigger shot after the jumpxxx8230;"

The biggest concern I have is the statement that the Thunder has leapfrogged the Bold in terms of priority for RIM.

I posted about this delay the other week. I, again, spoke with Rogers this morning, who advised that the phone will NOT be released July 25 and that the likely date now is the first week in September.

like sith has been saying for a long time now, how can a non announced device (by carriers) release date be pushed back?

seriously why do people get so upset about this? AT&T Bold Information BGR's Bold date being pushed back is exactly what I stated in my article about AT&T training. Last week of August, first week of September. He is dead on from what i heard about the Thunder, absolutely dead on.

They are not being delayed. There has been NO release information past "Summer" from RIM. If RIM knew when the devices were going to be released, they would have given a more accurate time. Thats like people saying the iPhone was delayed because it was launched on July 11, and not the same day as last year. It means NOTHING until a carrier/RIM points to a calendar and says "We launch then". If after that the date changes, THEN its delayed.

Very reliable. That's why production is taking longer then anticipated.

This is nothing more than the "whisper date" being re-guessed. Without a firm date from RIM, which there has not been, this is all guesswork and speculation by largely uninformed hypsters. And this hysteria is what results when people take them seriously.

This uninformed hypster (BG) is running a website that like ALL sites makes money according to the number of people who log on! I do not care what anyone says the site has hinted about some of these non-existant dates that keep passing and shares some of the blame.
