The rumor mill is spinning at full speed with the BlackBerry Bold 9930 and now the BlackBerry 9850. First we had the BGR mentioning the rumor that the BlackBerry Bold 9900 will not be shipping globally until September. That seems to go against RIM’s original announcement saying:
Availability – The new BlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930 smartphones are expected to be available from carriers around the world beginning this summer.
It could be that the BGR got things right that the device might not ship Globally until September since signs are pointing to an August launch. CrackBerry scored some pictures of a Sprint inventory system showing the BlackBerry Bold 9930 launching on Sprint for a tentative August 21st ship date and the 9850 with no tentative date.
Next we have some Google ads already advertising the BlackBerry Bold Touchscreen on Verizon when they have not even announced the device spotted by BBRocks. I guess that confirms it will be coming to Verizon but if the device was going to launch in September would they really be advertising it now? Just doesn’t add up. Something makes me feel we will see it in a July-ish time frame.
