AT&T BlackBerry Bold Delayed Until Mid-August

Illustration for article titled AT&T BlackBerry Bold Delayed Until Mid-August

Okay, so the BlackBerry Bold doesn't even have an official release date yet, but Boy Genius's RIM spies (who have a solid track record) say that it's been pushed back into August, courtesy of "software issues with battery life and overheating," so AT&T hasn't certified it yet. But apparently it's just fine for Canadians. Color us red-blooded Americans blue. [BGR]



Sounds like corporate excuses which translate into AT&T trying to avoid the Bold and iPhone clashing directly with launches weeks apart by pushing the bold away from the iPhone by over a month. It could also have something to do with the agreement with Apple.
