BlackBerry Bold delayed further

And the plot begins to thicken.

Research In Motion's long-awaited BlackBerry Bold has hit another snag in its launch, and will be delayed further and training sessions scheduled for AT&T employees are being pushed back, according to a report on the blog Boy Genius Report. AT&T Mobility will be launching the phone.

The 3G HSPA device has been in RIM's pipeline for months, and was previously scheduled to launch in August, and then for later in the fall. Now, it appears that the launch will be delayed further because of problems with the OS still being fixed at RIM. AT&T had also planned on having launch parties throughout October, which makes a November commercial launch date uncertain.
