Does anyone know when the new BB Bold 9900 will be released in the UK?
I was at the Blackberry World conference in May and at the time they just said "sometime this summer".
I've subsequently seen a few threads suggesting it might be delayed until September. Nothing firm though.
Having had a play with a 9900, I'm not sure what the excitement is about. Sure it is slimmer and has a new OS but for real world use, I'm not sure you'll really so many improvements over a handset running OS 6. I dont get the point of a touch screen as well as the touchpad and they didnt really seem to work together very well. Besides I dont like the format of the bigger 9900 models over the 9780's.
If the QNX OS is as buggy as my playbook then I'm not sure I want to be an early adopter either. Whilst I do like my playbook, I wouldnt say the OS is ready for public consumption.
Mid June / July is what we were told. Have you tried registering your interest?

I'm sure a bit of digging around on the Internet may uncover something more concrete...
