Earlier this month one of BGR’s sources at RIM gave them information saying that AT&T would be the exclusive carrier in the U.S for the BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider and it would indeed be out in June of this year. Today one of our connects, who for some reason wants to go by PrincesPowerful, gave us information that also leads to a June launch with AT&T having an exclusive on the Bold 9800 Slider for 3 months. So could two different sources be wrong? Possible but not likely, so are you going to switch to AT&T just for the 9800?

    I will not switch, I will wait for T-mobile, only having the thought I will be able to make wi/fi calls. Isn’t that what Rim is all about? There are many who need this to be a reality.
