While the buzz over the new BlackBerry 7 devices is still going strong, we're still trying to pin down official dates for all devices across the board. A faithful reader sent in this internal road map of BlackBerry devices that was supposedly sent out to Wireless Giant retailers (aka BlackBerry Stores). The document shows off a ton of estimated release dates for all the latest devices, including the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930, Torch 9850/9860, Torch 9810 and even the rumored BlackBerry "Cyclone" (aka BlackBerry TV). Also on the list are Wifi Stereo devices listed as "Beats" and "Calpyso" - what these are we're not totally sure, but they could possibly be the step up from the Bluetooth Music Gateway in Wifi form. While the dates seem to vary quite a bit, they are all totally possible (we don't like AT&T not seeing the Bold 9900 or Torch 9860 until November! Yikes!!) but definitely take this at face value. In the next few weeks we'll certainly see some official dates from major carriers, so for now just let this get you thinking.
