Just a few days back Virgin Mobile Canada posted a tweet to their official twitter account saying that they will be adding the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and Torch 9810 to their “Killer Line-up” this year. While we still don’t have an official launch date for any BlackBerry 7 devices there is a lot of speculation surrounding the wee of the 15th, could this screen show of the Virgin Mobile inventory system help the validity of said rumours? I think so. Stay tuned as we get closer to the launch of the all new BlackBerry 7 lineup.

Looks as though the launch of the Bold 9900 and Torch 9810 are approaching quite quickly. Rogers wireless has already entered the new devices into their hardware upgrade system, giving us reasons to believe a launch on or before the 15th of August is doable.

Looking to dig into those new BlackBerrys even before they come out? Well, RIM knew you would and updated BlackBerry.com to give you the chance to explore and learn about the new phones before they hit the market later this month. The new page will allow you to view photos of the new devices and see a video walk-through. I must admit I’m liking the new Torch 9850/9860, though the Bold Touch wil probably be my daily driver I’m sure.
Thanks @ErikDue for the tip!

**PhotoShop image of Telus branding on the Bold 9900
As we get closer to the launch of the BlackBerry Bold 9900, a 1.2ghz rocking…NFC equipped BlackBerry the launch date rumour mill starts to spin. Today we received a tip stating that Telus would be launching the Bold 9900 on the HSPA+ 4G network on Monday August 15th. Now normally we don’t like to post on rumoured device launch dates with no screen shots but this informant has a good track record. Hopefully Telus customers are getting excited as it looks like the launch is just around the corner. Let us know what BlackBerry 7 device you’re looking at getting in the comments.
Looks as though RIM is pushing to make the August launch happen as a leaked image from T-Mobile is showing the launch of the Bold 9900 set to happen on August 31st. There’s still no concrete information from RIM or even official news from T-Mobile, but I’m guessing we’ll be seeing more from RIM very soon.

Yesterday RIM released FaceBook 2.0 for the BlackBerry PlayBook and BlackBerry handhelds, the new version brings a bevy of new features like FaceBook Chat and Places. So RIM decided why not bust out the Bold 9900 and show the BlackBerry community the all new FaceBook on the unreleased Bold, good idea.
RIM…please stop teasing us. Watching how well FaceBook 2 works on the new processor and touch screen makes me cry, but I guess its only a matter of time.

The image above is reportedly from internal Sprint documentation detailing the release of three new BlackBerry devices on their network. The first device in the lineup is of course, the Bold 9330. This is listed as the BlackBerry Bold 3 and is slated to launch on August 21. The Torch 9850 is next on the list and is also listed for launch on August 21. The third BlackBerry device listed for release on Sprint is the Curve 4. This device is the Curve 9350 and is currently slated for a September 9th release. There is also mention of the Curve coming in purple, something that is not entirely unexpected given carrier history of releasing Curve models in multiple colors.
These dates are lining up well with most other rumors and it’s looking like we should see the Bold 9900 series and Torch 9850 launch in the US in August. A Canadian launch may come at the same time or could come in September. We’ll keep you up to date as soon as something official on these release dates comes out from either RIM or the carriers. The full image from the inventory system can be viewed past the break.
