AT&T Set To Get BlackBerry Slider 9800 In June?

Posted on 14. May, 2010 by in BlackBerry, Rumors

A rumor has surfaced this morning on BGR that the yet to be announced BlackBerry Slider (Bold?) 9800 is set to launch in AT&T in June as an exclusive handset.  According to the article AT&T has placed an order for over 1,000,000 units of the exclusive device.  The timing of this release seems a little off to me for a few reasons.  First, June is traditionally iPhone month for AT&T, releasing anything else at the same time as the new iPhone which is sure to get all the attention would kill any buzz another device should receive.  Second, RIM had stated that BlackBerry 6, their new OS revealed at WES, was set to be released in Q3 this year.  The 9800 is sure to launch with BlackBerry 6, does this mean RIM is ahead of schedule?  BGR also stated that Sprint would receive the 9800 sometime in September.  Only time will tell.  Until then if you are unfamiliar with the BlackBerry 9800 be sure to check out the video that leaked awhile back, it is not a bad looking device at all.
