There has been a ton of leaks today regarding upcoming BlackBerry 7 smartphones and the major wireless carriers in Canada. I thought I would take a few minutes and summarize them into one great post for you. So far today we’ve seen leaked documents from Bell, Telus and Rogers which show the BlackBerry Bold 9900, BlackBerry Torch 9810, and the new all touch BlackBerry Torch 9860 launching within weeks of each other. So let’s take a look at the rumored launch dates for all these devices:
A leaked roadmap landed today which shows tons of BlackBerry goodness coming to Bell. The roadmap shows the BlackBerry Torch 9810, Torch 9860, Bold 9900, and Curve 9360. This roadmap compares each device, but sadly doesn’t give any time frames for launches. If we had to guess we say the launch dates will follow very closely to Telus, which you will see below.

BGR obtained a leaked internal spreadsheet which shows a ton of upcoming devices, including 7 new BlackBerry 7 smartphones. The list (which is hard to see) points to an August 15th launch date for the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and Torch 9810, the new all touch BlackBerry Torch 9860 is slated for August 22nd, and finally the ultra thin Curve 9360 around August 29th. So it looks to be a very interesting month for Telus at least.
Finally TechnoBuffalo obtained a very blurry image Rogers confirming they will release the BlackBerry Bold 9900. While its extremely hard to make out it seems Rogers will try and have this new BlackBerry 7 smartphone out the door for August 9th — Yep, just one week away. Sadly they didn’t get any information about the Torch 9810, Torch 9860, or new Curve 9360. But I’m sure Rogers will spill the beans sooner than later…
So as you can see its shaping up to be a very exciting month for the BlackBerry brand and Research In Motion. We expect to hear more from RIM about the un-announced devices over the next couple of days. Stay tuned!
