Verizon Has Plenty Of BlackBerry Bold 9650′s On Order

Posted on 19. May, 2010 by in BlackBerry, Tech News

As you can see in the above screen shot taken today of a Verizon Wireless warehouse for the BlackBerry Bold 9650, they currently have 83,860 units on order and not a single one on hand.  Sprint was able to move up their release date by a week while Verizon is yet to announce the device will even be on their network.  From my understanding this warehouse has shown this same quantity on order for a couple weeks.  Let’s hope that they get them in stock sooner rather than later. People can only wait for so long before we jump ship whether it be to another carrier or another OS.

Let me clarify something before I get comments.  Please realize there are a handful of warehouses all through out the country, and this is not the total order Verizon has with RIM.

Thanks Big Perm!

    Why should we even care about the 9650? is there any real advancement over the 9630? A little more memory and Wifi. Does that justify any hype? And how long has it taken RIM to get this to market?

      With it being a new bb, which likely willmbe able to run BlackBerry 6, it is worth the coverage. Even if it doesmhave the shortcomings you previously mentioned.

    Some of us care about it as we are looking to upgrade from an older model. In my case, I am upgrading from the curve 8330 and don’t want to get the 9630 if there is a new one coming out soon. I don’t really care about the wifi or trackpad. If I would have known 4 months ago that it would take this long for it to come out, I would have gotten the 9630.

      You should care about the trackpad…my 9630 always gets stuck all the time the tour was a mistake and they are trying to correct it now.

      Agreed. Moving up from the flip, and the flash for a camera (over the “new” curve), and the lack of trackball problems (over the tour) should have been worth a wait till the 23rd of May. Now my Verizon guy is on about June 8th.

    + 1 on Denis’ comment. This delay is horrible. It shouldn’t take this long to put wi-fi, a trackpad, and a little more memory in a phone that’s been out since the end of last summer.

    The trackpad will be nice. I currently don’t care about it because I’ve had absolutely no issues with the ball on my curve. I’m looking forward to the 3.2 MP camera also but that’s the same as the 9630 – both are improvements over the 8330

    Why is it taking so long for them to announce a date?? You would think since sprint announced a release date verizon would as well because sprint is competition

    I had the Curve 8330 for two years. It got to a point that I had to do a battery pull at least once daily. I couldn’t wait any longer for the Bold 9650 that I had been reading about for the past 5 months. I went to the Droid Incredible. Some of the functionality of the BB devices isn’t there, but I don’t have to plug it in to my computer to make sure I don’t miss any appointments.

    I went into a Verizon store and was also told that Blackberry Bold 9650 will be released June, 2010. But they didn’t give me a date in June.

      I heard that over at one of crackberry forums. Verizon is always late. If the CEO were a woman it would be different. Late is not cool.

    RIM/verizon is a joke to me right now. ive been asking them about this phone for months now and everytime recieved a different release date. the lastest date they gave me was today may 27, but sure enough i went in to get it and they still dont even have a set release date yet and i was told they may even try tp push for a september/october launch date.
