The BlackBerry Bold 9800 slider, which has been leaked more times than I can count, may finally be made official next week. AT&T and BlackBerry manufacturer Research In Motion just sent out invites to an event on August 3rd in NYC. There's no official announcement of what the event is for, but considering how many times we've seen the Bold 9800 slider in the past, I'd say it's about time that the people showing off the device are the ones that actually made it.
I have to say that I'm pretty excited to see the Bold 9800 slider finally made official, especially since we'll likely be seeing BlackBerry 6 shown off at the same time. Plus, this means we can finally move on and start seeing another new 'Berry leaked every other day. Hopefully AT&T and RIM are able to get the Bold 9800 slider into the hands of customers quickly and at a reasonable price to help fight off the onslaught of iPhones and Android devices. August 3rd is less than a week away, so all will be revealed soon!
