As the flood of device release rumors hit the airwaves, the latest of the bunch is this blurry as hell image from Rogers. From the looks of it, the BlackBerry Bold 9900 could land on Rogers as early as August 9th. If you manage to make out the last line, you can see it reads "Tentative Launch Date August 9" ... or 3 ... or 6. Fingers crossed that it's one of them at least. We can expect to know for sure after all the BB 7 Fan Night fun goes down, so you hopefully only have to hang tight for another day or so before we get some official info.

At least one thing is for sure, it looks to be a single digit so if the "tentative launch date" holds true, it should be between now and the 9th.

I'm going to be that guy for a second...

That looks like a 3. :p

ryanlrobinson

I actually do kind of think it looks most like a 3, although I could definitely see it being a 6 or 9 either. In any case, this is very good news.

DrLouie

I think it has to be a 3 or a 9, I just don't see it being a 6

If you look at the other 9 and 5 on the page, it looks like neither! it's gotta be a 3!

Cannot wait! Will buy this and ditch my 9700 :p

That picture was taken with a Blackberry 9800 so go figure..............

wow! i dropped a F-BOMB too!!! LOL

Something that's always puzzled me is the way the launch dates and even carrier ID's are such closely guarded secrets. In most businesses, marketers want some lead time to build interest and demand. Sure you get a little buzz this way among the group of phone nuts, but what a way to run an airline!

Come on bell your turn lol

TheWait_IsOver

Most likely 3 or 9...leaning towards 3
Only way it could be a 6 is if it were a sdrawkcab 6
Or an upside down 6...in which case, it would be a 9
...but I say 3

Smurf112

I doubt that ! Highly doubt that :)
Wanna bet 50 $ ?

And1Viper

That is definitely a 3

Guessing 9th....Love the design for the Bold 9900 but I want a bigger screen. Any guesses on when rogers will be releasing the Torch 9810?

Why do all of these types of photos resemble Big foot's photos. No one that ever gets close to these things ever can take a picture.

The picc looks like a curve
See the keyboard

Fanatix85

It looks like a curve to me too! To be honest when I first saw the picture, I thought it was a Curve! We'll see what happens...

I just came back from a vacation...is there any way to get invited to this kick off in Toronto?

Kuttysark

you had to win the tweet contest, only way to win a device. As for the event itself, winners each got an additional 2 tickets for the event. My tickets are already spoken for. There was one other crackberry winner who posted in my forum thread here http://forums.crackberry.com/social-users-pin-barcode-sharing-f51/winner... you could always PM the guy to see if he used his additional tickets.

pmich

Thanks for the info! Much appreciated. Let me work my magic now

nah son....follow me on twitter for the action tomorrow night:

After taking this picture to the lab (jk) it was determined that it is just one more blurry picture taken with a Chinese knock-off Blackberry :o).

Connor83

Damn "fake of the week" takin pics of "real of the week"

0obaho0

All I can say is "IT'S ABOUT EFFIN' TIME!!!"

I'm not gonna pretend that I can read what that blurry a$$ pic says, but I'm OK with single digit August release date FTW. This gives me a 1 week period for me to relax. If it said Aug 10+, I would punch a hole in my monitor. I can wait one more week XD

Kuttysark

Since I won/and am going to BB7 Fan Night, I'm hoping we have a choice between the three 9900/Torch 2/ and Torch 9860

As far as I can tell, except for form factor, the bold 9900 and Torch 2 are the same specs, the 9860 is the only one I can tell so far that brings the 800 x 480 screen res to the table. Or is their something I'm missing with these phones?

pinmidtown

It's launching on the 9th guys(take that picture. Look at the exif data, make some calls ;) )

Connor83

I'll be honest I think it looks like a 5 and hey that's my b-day. So it would work out fine by me. Except for the fact I'm on at&t.

nickdacosta

It's a 9 im looking at the print out right now.( I work for rogers)

Abrante

Finally! someone from the inner circle. Send a "clear" picture to Adam so that it can be updated on CB and the anxiety will stop :o).

pinmidtown

Yes it is as the original picture was taken at an authorized dealers store.

adrenaline_x

Sources within rogers are still hearing end of august, so i guess we will see.

edit - My rep might have delayed info.

cl8baller

Oh'p screw you AT&T I know where my money is going.

DeeDudnath

oh man im going straight in the morning!

JAGWIRE

looks like the 9th to me

Bold_until_Hybrid_Comes

i called almost every rogers in kitchener-waterloo and they all say all they know is its supposed to come out in september. got about the same response from all them

AceOfSpade1234

Hey, my wallet just got $500 bucks thinner!

GapBoyPCS

Decisions, decisions. I loved my 9000's form factor. I kinda like the Torch's bigger screen though. I think I have a few days to decide...
