As much as I hate putting those darned question marks on the headlines, I really have to in order to cover my tracks until the news is confirmed. We’re grabbing this info from a post on BlackBerry Forums by a new user named “jgudnas” who says that they’ve got the release date for the BlackBerry 8800 on Rogers after sitting down with a representative from Research In Motion.
“Just had a breakfast with the RIM rep for rogers out here in Calgary. Held a shining new 8800 in my hand. Release is scheduled for March 7 / 07, which means rogers dealers should have avail within a few days of that date. Wi-Fi is probably another 6 months down the pipe for rogers, to coincide with infrastructure roll out.”
Seems legit to me, but we’ll wait until official confirmation until we get all excited (and why even get excited with the lack of wifi?). The poster also thought to ask the RIM rep about the 9XXX series, and all they got in return was a blank stare. So there you have it. Rogers customers, you can start camping out now.
