This doesn't surprise us too much - when the October 27th launch date rumor surfaced we had hopes for it, but made note that early November would be more likely. AT&T on their earnings conference call yesterday now confirmed that to be the case:
NEW YORK (AP) - AT&T Inc. says that the new flagship BlackBerry model that was initially expected this summer, the Bold 9000, will go on sale Nov. 4.
Ralph de la Vega, head of AT&T's consumer business, supplied the launch date on the company's third-quarter earnings conference call Wednesday.
When BlackBerry manufacturer Research in Motion Ltd. revealed the model in May, it said it would go on sale this summer. The Bold 9000 did launch in some overseas markets, but not in the U.S. The apparent delay hurt RIM shares over the summer.
Early in October, RIM co-CEO Mike Lazaridis that the Bold was still being tested by AT&T, and implied that the carrier was being extra careful after widely publicized problems with Apple Inc.'s latest iPhone.

Google will pay you a measly $1.50 a week to track EVERYTHING on your phone
