The Rogers Cup Men's Tennis tournament got rolling this past weekend in Toronto, and within the Rogers Clubhouse three shiny new BlackBerry Bold 9000s are on display. Big Thanks to Richard and Andrew who were both in attendance and both sent us in pics and comments! You can check out more eyecandy shots after the jump. As for their reactions to seeing the Bold live for the first time? "Amazing" and "SO Smooth" describe the device. And in true CrackBerry Addict fashion they did their best to get release date info out of the Rogers peeps working but received mixed answers: one said early August, another said late August, and another acknowledged the precise date of August 25th with a wink. ;) more after the jump
Rogers Release Date Rumors
As for what I'm hearing... well, my head is going to explode soon. My most recent info from a trusted and reliable source is the info I want to believe:
- Rogers gave final approval to the Bold's code yesterday, and as previously rumored the Rogers Bold press release should still go out This Friday (July 25th), and the device will hit Sales Central early next week and you should be able to walk into a Rogers outlet and pick one up for the long weekend (so very early August).
But at the same time I've now received conflicting tips that say mid-August, late-August and even one tip that suggests it will be delayed until SEPTEMBER 27th (shoot me now if that's true cause I can't hold out that long). Now you know why my head is going to explode. Please Rogers...let us have an official word on the Bold's release SOOON.
