No word on 9900 for AT&T subscribers

Written by David Stellmack


Still not confirming official release date
Many AT&T subscribers that are BlackBerry fans are not very happy with the mother ship these days. While the BlackBerry Bold 9900 has been out for some time now and AT&T has confirmed that they will be getting it at some point, the question is when?

AT&T has still not confirmed an official release date despite the release of the new Torch 9810 for only $49.99 with a two-year contract. This does not silence those that want the Bold 9900 and the features that it is offers. The 9900 is very different from the 9810 slider.

No one seems to know exactly what the hold up is, but some have said that the issue has to do with the stability of the OS as well as the disabling of the near field payment technology that it is included with the 9900. Of course, our sources tell us that it could be that or something else.

The latest whispers that we are hearing seem to indicate that the new Bold 9900 might not actually be released till November. Again, that is only conjecture at this point. We will just have to wait and see when AT&T actually confirms the 9900; but when they do, don’t expect it to arrive before then. In the meantime, you will have plenty of time to look at all of the new Android and iPhone models. The delay could end up hurting RIM, as the 5th generation iPhone is now expected to arrive in October.
