RIM to Launch AT&T BlackBerry 8310 on October 11; Colors Available: Crimson Red & Titanium

RIM AT&T BlackBerry 8310 Launch Data
By Kevin Michaluk on 9 Oct 2007 05:21 pm EDT

I guess I need to start paying closer attention to our CrackBerry.com forums. This afternoon I started seeing photos of the soon to be released AT&T 8310 BlackBerry Curve pop up in my RSS reader showing the Crimson Red color it will be available in. Well it turns out we had this data and more in our forums for over 24 hours before the news started to break elsewhere. A big thanks to our member Bla1ze for getting this out there.

According to this Launch sheet, it looks like the 8310 will become available on October 11th. We've seen before that the Launch Date doesn't mean you can necessarily go down to your AT&T dealer on Thursday morning and pick up a new 8310. Rather, they become available to AT&T for distribution/sale at that point. I'm guessing it will be next week before customers start getting their hands on this new BlackBerry smartphone.

Be sure to let us know when you do see the 8310 for sale. How do you like Red Wine color? Better than the Bright Ferrari red I was sort of hoping for?

RIM to Launch AT&T BlackBerry 8310 on October 11; Colors Available: Crimson Red & Titanium


I love that wine color, it looks great imo..although as per usual..I already have my curve thus do not have the $$ to buy another one...c'mon Blackberry Give away :P..btw thnxs Kevin for the credit.

just got off the phone with the ATT store and they said it will be the 8320 not the 8310 and will be at the end of the month. they could be wrong, it would not be the first time a retail store had no idea what they are talking about.

This is crazy! I bought the Curve 8300 nearly a month ago (28 days to be exact). I really want the GPS in the 8310. I've been following these "realease dates" for nearly three weeks. They keep pushing further back. AT&T won't extend my 30 days to return. What's a guy to do????

It surprises me how many people still take the word of AT&T reps. They are mostly idiots who are told things when they are hit in the face with it. They don't have previous knowledge, unless they have a fascination in it, and they TRY to obtain the information on their own. But, as a whole, most of the store workers are morons. It is the 8310, NOT the 8320. This has been confirmed on BBForums by a guy who sells them in his online store. He sent a pic with a stack of the maroon ones, and a stack of the titanium ones from his inventory, with the date, and a yellow sticky note saying bbforums. At least in its initial release, it is NOT an 8320. It is the 8310. Kindly go to the rep that told you it was an 8320, and tell him/her they are a moron.

You are obviously not a true blackberry fan or you would know the 8310 is not maroon it is Red Wine... And the rep was probably reffering to the 8820 not the 8320, you should do your homeowrk before you bash AT&T reps. AT&T reps 4 life...
