BlackBerry Bold hits delays

RIM BlackBerry Bold

Citing two high-level sources, The Boy Genius is reporting that the AT&T version of the BlackBerry Bold will be delayed until August. The delay is due to software issues with battery life and overheating. As a result, AT&T has yet to certify the BlackBerry Bold.

It’s not clear whether the AT&T delays will also affect other carriers (for example, Rogers Wireless in Canada). Unless AT&T has asked for some custom code, it’s likely though that the same issues will affect the Rogers version of the Bold.
