AT&T product sheet says November ETA for BlackBerry Bold

AT&T BlackBerry launch dates

Oh no! We’ve been having our fun here at BlackBerry Cool pointing out AT&T’s BlackBerry Bold launch problems while playing with our Rogers Bold, but you’re heart has to go out to AT&T subscribers. The Boy Genius has published an AT&T product sheet dated September 17th that puts the ETA for the BlackBerry Bold release sometime in November. Despite this, BG remains confident in his October 2nd launch date, but I have to wonder why he’s as hopeful as Jim Balsillie about the earlier launch time.

There is some positive BlackBerry news for AT&T subscribers, however. The Sapphire Blue BlackBerry 8320 is set to arrive October 21st, with an Oyster Pink BlackBerry Pearl coming October 2nd. A Burnt Orange BlackBerry Curve model has been pushed to 2009, sadly.

Question of the day, folks: are you now more interested in the BlackBerry Storm, which has a similar launch timeline, or are you still Bold people? Post a comment and let us know.

    F* it. I am just going to buy an unlocked Bold off of eBay and switch to Verizon. I’ve had it with AT&T. Still prefer the Bold to the Storm.

    @Chris,

    My friend, I feel your pain but I think you’re a bit confused. You could unlock the Storm and use its GSM capabilities on AT&T or you could unlock a Rogers Bold and use it on AT&T, but you couldn’t use an unlocked Bold on Verizon.

    Different networks, different bands, whole different ball game.

    I’ve waited this long, I might as well a little while longer. (sigh)

    Right, you could use that unlocked Bold on ATT (with ATT SIM card) but not on any other national USA carrier. Well, you could use it on TMO but not for 3G data.

    I have been waiting since May (when I first discovered Blackberry and the Bold) and have been very excited about getting one. I don’t like waiting, but also don’t want a phone I can’t use. So I will wait, however impatiently, for AT&T to get their network fixed and release the Bold. My personal opinion is that this says Nov. so they won’t be accused of more delays, but believe it will come out in Oct.

    Hey Chris…

    Can’t put an unlocked GSM/UMTS phone on a CDMA network. Doesn’t work like that!

    You cant put GSM units on CDMA (ie: Verizon & Sprint), but they’ll work just fine on T-Mobile. You’re not necessarily stuck with AT&T.

    I am switching off AT&T after 8 years if there is another delay in the Bold. My 8800 is on its last leg
