It’s a sad day at BBGeeks headquarters, folks. This is the last time we’ll get to harp on the BlackBerry Bold delays. As we know, AT&T and RIM have announced that it will launch on November 4. So, if you looked forward to your weekly fill of lamenting delays, well, we’ll have to move onto another BlackBerry device. For those of you sick of it, well, next week we won’t talk about delays. Unless, of course, the Storm gets pushed back.

With the Bold now announced, we talk about the implications. Why was it delayed? So RIM could get the software right. Why is that important? Because AT&T is mainly selling this to business customers, from which they make a lot of money. Don’t want to upset your best customers. Will the delays affect sales? Probably. I can’t see them selling as many devices now as they would have if they released it in, say, August.
Speaking of poor sales, looks like the 8220 isn’t doing too hot. Hint for RIM: You gotta drop the price. I know it’s not as easy as changing a price tag, but it’s going to open new markets and boost sales.
Storm: November 13. Or 16th. Somewhere around there. That’s the latest rumor.
Plus, RIM announces some new push services which can save you time and even a little battery life.
