If the vendors are this slow, I think we all will retire by the time the Bold comes out. I have had the opportunity to see and hold the device at WES and I was there in early 2008. Here we are in the 3rd quarter (ok, ok, I will get off my soap box but I know AT&T - they can't do anything fast! Including support!) and no Bold. (yawn - I think we are all tired of the waiting - ack!)

It is just going to be another rollout like the iPhone. Maby we will all get lucky and Bolds will just start to appear at a completitive pricing point. (would that be lovely!)

Ciao

That would be great - but you know, we don't see any advertising on the Tube in the US (AT&T) Remember when the iPhone came out - At least we had some initial advertising but Apple may be different.
Are there Rogers ads running BOLD in Canada??

There's no ads yet but most of the Rogers corporate stores already have their collateral (advertising..dummy units, etc..)

I can GUARANTEE that the Rogers warehouse has 1000s in stock ready to ship.

We've all spoken to managers, reps, sources.....they have all given different release dates. We've been told firm dates many times....NOBODY will know anything until they are in our hands.

Sob...
I think I am going to shut myself off from the rest of the world until the 9000 shows itself. The amount of assumption surrounding this is wreaking havoc on my force shield!

I hate to turn into Greg. But do we need another "BlackBerry Bold Release Date - CONFIRMED" thread? Right now there are three CONFIRMED dates people are on:

August 19th
August 28th
September 12th

I appreciate the information just as much as the next guy. But confirmed is not confirmed without an announcement from a carrier.

P.S. Just giving you a hard time Greg

You make a good point. People are too quick to throw around the "Confirmed" title when, in actuality, all they have is a rumor repeated by their cousin who knows a girl that dates a guy who......
Confirmed should only refer to information released by RIM or a carrier. Not BGR, TmoNews, or some other blog. Those tossers probably speak to the same cousin who knows a girl that dates a guy......

this is the worst game of suspense.. it's quite frustrating.

launching 'next week' usually means the following week.

you won't get one, but I'm guessing you like seeing the glass half full.

I agree, just trying to make it easier for when it finally arrives, I was told that Rogers Stores are receiving them on the 19th, when they want to release, who knows.
