BBerry Bold ATT 27th Rumor

AT&T's long-delayed version of the BlackBerry Bold could finally be available before the end of the month, a leaked e-mail obtained by BGR indicates. The internal message points to the first HSDPA BlackBerry for the US having a "latest ETA" of October 27th and thus sets a relatively firm date for its launch. However, the note leaves room for a potential last-minute delay or other factors that could push a release into November or later. Pricing still isn't set in the document but is commonly thought to hover at $300 with a two-year contract.

The Bold was originally perceived to be RIM's more direct answer to the iPhone and other high-end all-in-one phones and was claimed as an AT&T exclusive as early as May, when Research in Motion first announced the device with intentions of a summer release in the States. Neither RIM nor AT&T have revealed why the phone has been delayed for so long, though 3G dropouts and overall rough software are considered likely setbacks. Orange recently suspended Bold sales temporarily until RIM could update the phone's firmware.
