With the smartphone market booming the last thing that any manufacturer would want is a delay and unfortunately that’s exactly what has happened over at RIM with the new BlackBerry Bold. Already we have reported on some of the specs and also the previous intended release date being in the summer but this is news that those of you who want the device will need to read.
We learned that the BlackBerry Bold 9900 release date has been delayed until September through an article over on BGR.com by their author Jonathan S. Geller who says that they have confirmed these details with multiple sources. It’s such a shame to see RIM struggling to release devices in the timescales that they want to because each time they do it other manufacturers claw a little bit more of vital market share away from them.
Whilst BlackBerry devices remain popular they are in need of an update and there are a few other handsets that are planned. We are hoping that they all end up being released on time and that there’s a significant improvement on the devices that they are surpassing. If there isn’t then it would pretty much be industrial suicide as they will have paid out a lot of money in research and production with a product that won’t necessarily sell.
We are still waiting to hear officially from RIM about the bad news but multiple sources are now reporting the news. We just hope it doesn’t go further than September… That would be really bad don’t you think?
