Previous rumours were pointing to a July 15th. release date for the BlackBerry 9000, but the latest is pointing to a little bit later. Vancouver’s launch party is July 17th., which would definitely nix the old rumour, so the 25th. sounds like it’s in the right ball park. That being said, an August release on AT&T doesn’t sound that bad at all, although BlackBerry and the 3G iPhone are apparently close enough in the races for a few weeks release difference to make or break many sales.
