BG is doing some fine work this week, now having posted a "draft" of AT&T's Press Release concerning the upcoming launch of the BlackBerry Bold. It's a work in progress - the date has been left to October XX and there's still room for a quote from RIM, but it is still great eye candy for those of you on AT&T waiting on the Bold (minus the fact it looks like you'll be waiting until October). Click the image below to see the full release.

First

no seriously its about time and you know what the pricing should be lower for keeping us waiting all this time. I should just wait for a javelin at this point....

Isnt the whole point of the bold the 3G and the screen? How can you compare it to the Javelin? The Javelin is a Curve on steroids, and while I don't doubt it'll be awesome, it offers a different feature set in my opinion....but ya Octoberfest is early october right? I hope

It's about time we get some 'official' word on when the BOLD will be coming out! It looks like the October 2 release date is still standing strong! Oh, and I am very happy with the release price!

Ok after reading this I am going to have to jump ship from VZW to AT&T. I love my curve, but Simo Voice and Data plus while being connected to a laptop, that would make life so much easier for work!!!! I can wait until October!!!

The sad truth is I don't care any more. I wonder how many other people that would have done anything to get there hands on one will just be like "oh, okay. That's neat I guess."

I work for at&t and the bold will not be released to other carriers until we have had it for 6 months. So lets do the math it comes out in october...therefore March it will be released for other carriers.

Ugh. $299? I was hoping for $199 to at least make it somewhat reasonable for the average consumer. It's going to be difficult for me to open up my wallet and fork over three Benjamins for a cell phone. Might have to give the iPhone a second look.

the government and we get special deals.

But, AT&T won't give us a discount on the iPhone. Go figure!

So it's $199 for the iPhone and $199 for the Bold.

I'm going for the Bold. That is, unless something else comes along and catches my fancy.

I read on one of the comments when a very early post rumored that the Bold was going to be released on May and someone commented "My birthday is on May, it'll make a perfect birthday present." Now that it's going to be released on October and my birthday is on October 10th, it's my turn to say It'll make a perfect birthday present! In fact, my girlfriend said she's giving me that for my birthday.

the blackberry came fast and was brand new in box for the price i expected it to be used but it was not. the phone works great. will buy from again.

does anyone know how much it will be without the contract? i got my curve in june using my upgrade, but i would get this, anybody know the price? im hearing 600 which sounds steep

I have been trying to find when Octoberfest is and most dates put it at the end of Sept and runs for several days into October. I hope that this is true as I am very tired of waiting. I have a 1st gen iPhone and, while it is ok, I am tired of it and ready to move on. I hope that the trouble that the iPhone 3G has been having does not rub off on the Bold. That would be sad to wait so long and then it doesn't work well. I do have a Blackjack I and the 3G works fine on it and it is pretty fast so here's hoping.......

Does anyone know if the Javalin is coming to ATT and if yes when is the ETA? If it is I may wait to see if RIM throws in 3G and get the Javlin!

I've been waiting for the Bold since June and I'm so excited to know that the end is finally near. While I have never before used a BB, I have heard great things and can't wait to dump my crappy Samsung flip-phone and join the BB addicts. I have had a HTC 8520, a Tilt, Nokia n95, some other shitty slider phones, and a Blackjack, but I know that the Bold will crush them all and become my new favorite accessory!

If the spaces in the press release are true to the lettering, it would be a Tuesday in October. None of the other days of the week have a place for only four letters before the day. XXXXday

That narrows it down a little !

Any ideas for a price range when i will not be eligable for an upgrade. Therefore I will have to buy the phone without a 2 yr contract. What will price look like? Guesses?
