Verizon's BlackBerry Bold 9930 to launch August 15th?

Brad Molen

Another day means another BlackBerry launch rumor, and today it's Verizon's turn. We already knew Big Red's been prepping its version of the Bold Touch 9930, evidenced when the carrier accidentally published the video on its own site. So when can we expect to see the fabled handset available for purchase? If CrackBerry's leaked screenshot is to be believed, launch day is tomorrow; it appears that the smartphone will be pushed through direct fulfillment channels first, followed by a carrier-wide release set for August 25th. So, early adopters may want to make a phone call first thing in the morning and ask, just in case operators really are standing by.
