3G Blackberry Reportedly Delayed

Fortune

BlackBerry smartphone manufacturer Research in Motion (RIM) will reportedly be pushing back the planned launch date of its new 3G phone.The phone, known as the 8900 or by its code name Meteor, was expected to be introduced in June, with AT&T as the carrier. Now, sources say, it won't be released until August. Supposedly AT&T has expressed concerns about call quality, but some speculate that the real reason is to avoid having the Meteor's thunder stolen by the expected June release of a 3G iPhone.

RIM's direct iPhone competitor, a touch-screen 3G BlackBerry, is expected later in the year.Fortune
