    Arrow Bold release speculation

    Advertisement



    I was checking out the official BlackBerry accessories on blackberry.com and decided to have a look at what is/will be available for the Bold. There are a few listed, and most of them have an availability date of 8/29/08. However, among them is also a "Leather Pocket". It looks like the slip cases that have been shipping with some of the other 'Berries. That one, along with a skin, has an availability date of 8/7/08. I'm thinking (and hoping!) this might be an indicator of the availability date for the Bold as well. What's everyone think?

    It could be.. I mean it must be just about out by now.. Any minute you should get a message from one of the stalkers saying they got their hands on one. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I was just looking at craigslist, and found this guy in texas that supposedly has them - unlocked,warranty,and accessories - for 250.00. i don't know how,kinda skeptical about it - but interesting!

    I e-mailed him,and he says he has them in hand, brand new- unlocked, and will ship within 24hrs. in the U.S. I still don't know about this...lol, but if so, thats like a 450 dollar difference than other sites, like fommy.com - who's taking pre-orders for them for 699.

    that is definitely a scam. if they aren't going to do it in person, i wouldnt advise going through with it. "Texas, USA?" thats a little fishy...

    Yea I would just wait it out and not go for any of these pre-orders or too-good-to-be-true ads. I actually just spoke to a RIM representative who said that it is basically confirmed that the Bold will be available for AT&T and Rogers the last week of August. Of course, there goes my hope of August 7th, but it fits with the accessories available August 29th. I'm hopeful for the 7th, but I think the last week in August might be it.

    will we actually be able to get the Thunder here on GSM providers? I heard that it will only support international gsm bands.

    I'm pretty sure it said that t-mobile will have it,according to tmonews.com. and expansys.com has them unlocked - pre-order anyway for now, but they're pricey.
