RIM: Bold not delayed

There have not been any delays in the development of the BlackBerry Bold, a Research in Motion representative claims. At a Wednesday press event, Erik Van Drunen criticized what he called "rumors from bloggers" pointing to some form of postponement. Reports from some sources have suggested that RIM and AT&T (the Bold's first carrier) are experiencing technical problems, namely overheating; this has allegedly moved the Bold's release date back by at least a month.

Van Drunen notes that when the phone was originally announced, RIM only set a "summer" release date, and so any specific dates were purely speculative. "We didn't say anything about 'July' or 'August,'" he observes. "It will become available in August. So we're still on track for this summer."
