Labels: , , ,

Looks like Telus and Rogers are telling us different things. Techno Buffalo's latest tells us that the BlackBerry Bold 9900 could actually hit Rogers on August 9th (is that a 9?) which is exactly a week away. Price points are unknown right now and this is still unconfirmed. Don't be surprised if it doesn't launch on the 9th though, cause it might be arriving a bit later than expected.

Telus Roadmap Leaks, Includes A Bunch of BlackBerrys; Next iPhone In October

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Coming from BGR is a huge roadmap leak from Telus. It includes a bunch of devices that you should be interested in. Apparently, the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and Torch 2 could both be available on August 15th in Canada. On August 22nd, you can expect the Torch 9860 and on the 29th we could see the BlackBerry Curve Apollo. On October 1st, you can also expect the BlackBerry "Orlando" which is said to be a cheaper Curve.

On October 1st you can also expect an unannounced Sony Ericsson Urishi ST18a (running Android) and even the next-generation iPhone. Keep in mind that these dates are likely just estimates because I really doubt that so many devices will launch on a Saturday (especially an iPhone). The doc also lists the Samsung Cooper (Galaxy Ace) for an October 15th release date so you can expect that in Q4 as well.
