BlackBerry Bold 9650 to launch May 16th on Sprint?
While this isn't official news from Sprint, it sure looks pretty good. A user sent this into our good friends at CrackBerry today. Its a screenshot of a Sprint Excel file called the Handset Hotsheet and shows a list of phones with pricing info. Sure enough right there in the middle it shows the much anticipated 9650 and May 16th date. If you choose to believe this image is true, it would mean Sprint would be the first to offer the Bold CDMA device. A week ago we saw a screenshot from Verizon showing a May 27th launch. That would mean VZW would be nearly 2 weeks behind Sprint in the launch race. But without knowing for sure what this image's date of May 16 means, its hard to say if that will be the case. The spreadsheet doesn't say launch like the Verizon image did. So for now we will have to chalk this one up to a rumor. Hopefully the upcoming WES conference will shed light on both carrier's release dates.
