BlackBerry Curve

If you've been holding out for Sprint to release the BlackBerry Curve 9350 as an alternative to the higher priced BlackBerry Bold 9930 and BlackBerry Torch 9860 we have some bad news for you -- it's been held back and instead, will arrive on Sprint in October. The reason, as noted by Sprint:

Due to unexpected circumstances, Sprint shifted the launch of the BlackBerry® Curve™ 9350 smartphone beyond the planned Sept. 9 availability date. It will now go on sale in October with a specific availability date shared at a later time.

Quite vague and rather weird to pull a device only a few hours before it was set to go live. We may never know the real reason for the pulling but it's certainly something we're curious about. Anyone have any ideas or care to speculate? If so, feel free to drop them in the comments.
