It seems like ages since Research in Motion unveiled the BlackBerry Bold 9900 to the world, however a recent tweet from the official AT&T Twitter account suggests that the 9900 is in fact “coming soon”.
The Bold 9900 and Bold 9930 have been available from multiple carriers for a while now, so we are quite surprised to see AT&T still promoting its release, in our opinion there is a lot more interest surrounding the iPhone 4S and Galaxy Nexus – that said for enterprise users BlackBerry OS is far more suited to their needs than iOS and Android.
If you head over to CrackBerry you will see that a November 6th release is expected, AT&T’s entire tweet can be seen below, as you can see no solid indication as to when it will arrive was given.
The BlackBerry® Bold (TM) 9900 is coming soon! Stay tuned.
One thing which some of CrackBerry’s readers have pointed out is the fact that RIM has previously suggested that QNX will replace BlackBerry 7, in fact we have recently started hearing details about BBX, surely this is reason enough to skip any BlackBerry 7 smartphone and wait until the next-generation of BlackBerry smartphones? Let’s face it, RIM will probably unveil its new platform at CES 2011 which is roughly 3 months away.
We have also heard that the first batch of QNX-based BlackBerry smartphones will be touch-only, so if you are considering buying the Bold 990 for its physical QWERTY keyboard it may be a wise decision, you never know it could be a year before a QWERTY smartphone arrives with QNX.
Are you waiting for the AT&T BlackBerry Bold 9900 release?
