While our predicted national launch date of October 2nd still looks to be holding true, we’ve had a flurry of tips from many different people regarding the BlackBerry Bold release on AT&T. What we’ve heard, is that stores will be allowed to start ordering the BlackBerry Bold on September 24th. That gives them plenty of time to get units in stock and ready to go. No telling if stores will be allowed to sell the units the moment they come in, or if they will have to hold them until the 2nd. Then again, when do AT&T stores actually follow launch instructions?

Thanks to all our ninjas and tipsters!
