Obviously, take this with the grain of salt that all rumors deserve, but over the past year we’ve come to trust Boy Genius when he drops a date in our laps (even while he’s smacking us around like the BlackBerry-happy punks that we are). The straight word coming from an AT&T insider is that the BlackBerry 8820, with all it’s Wi-Fi and MicroSDHC goodness, will launch on North America’s largest GSM carrier by August 13th or 14th.
Considering that we haven’t heard a peep from AT&T enterprise users about a soft-launch, it seems like we got it half right last time. Oh well, that’s what we get for being BG wannabes. The biggest question now, however, is how quickly can we get our informant friend to send us an unlocked 8820 for use on Rogers?
