Has or does anyone know when the Bold 9800 slider is coming out?... BlackBerry Bold forum
Has or does anyone know when the Bold 9800 slider is coming out?
My best guess would be late in Q4 of this year, probably just in time for the holidays.
is this phone still just coming to AT&T or has Tmo stepped in the picture to get it too?
according to bbleaks:
Yesterday, tech site VentureBeat reported that according to BlackBerry Partners Fund’s John Albright, the BlackBerry 9800 (aka the Slider) will hit the market August 15 on AT&T. This device was sort of a mystery to all BB addicts because it was unmarked by a carrier (except in the video where it showed AT&T), had BlackBerry 6 running fully, and even still has no name.
If what Albright says is true than we can only wonder if this device will be the start of BlackBerry 6 or will it come with 5.0 and get an update later. Also the main selling-point with this device is the loss of SurePress. Now the phone’s touch interface is just like Android and iPhone, which is appropriate because those two are RIM’s main competitors.
tmo needs to get in the picture! they need to offer a new blackberry
Phone: T-Mo S4- Stock-Rooted
Device: T-Mobile S3
Device: HTC Amaze 4G
Device: HTC Vision (T-Mobile G2)
Device: BlackBerry (9700, 8900,8320,8120,8100)
They will. I've heard there's a 9820, which falls into TMO's numbering scheme.
This will annoy my daughter, she's with TMO and has just upgraded to the 9700 but she wanted a touch screen. If only she had waited a little longer
Even if it's just for AT&T you can buy it unlocked or unlock it. Haha. Then use it on T-mo.
Yea you can use it on tmo but no 3g!? No thnx!
launching on the 12th of Aug 2010.
BB tourch 9800
Received our 1st test devices yesterday, and the OS 184.108.40.2068 is now available for download ftom AT&T.
Thankfully, all is well with our custom apps and BES servers so far.
Oh, and it is the Torch. Stamped in largish letters on the back of the device.
It doesn't record video. Get over it.
