No Bold For AT&T - AT&T Holding Off On 9780 Until The Dakota Arrives?
Even though pictures were leaked of an AT&T branded Bold 9780 and released a statement that they were pulling the Bold 9000 and Bold 9700 from shelves, it's starting to look like AT&T may be holding off on releasing the newest device until the BlackBerry Bold (Dakota) arrives. It's also rumored that the company is set to focus on the Torch line, especially the upcoming Torch 2. This leaves AT&T with no Bold device.
According to sources at Fudzilla, that AT&T plans to have the new Dakota available for customers
"...as soon as early or mid-spring, but significant quantity is likely not expected at the store and authorized reseller level till very early summer.”
My question to you is: Without any Bold device, does this leave AT&T BlackBerry users with enough choices? Do you think customers will just purchase the phones on eBay or other online retailers instead? Let us know!
