Sprint Delaying BlackBerry Curve 9350 Release For Another Month?

Sprint had announced that it would be offering its subscribers access to RIM’s new BlackBerry Curve 9350, beginning September 9. With that date practically on top of us, we’ve heard a new rumor that the carrier may have to postpone its launch plans, and reschedule the Curve’s debut for October 2.

While it’s certainly better than an open-ended delay, an extra month is still quite the length of time to wait for the phone. This information comes courtesy of an anonymous source, who reported news of the delay being disseminated amongst Sprint employees.

We wonder if there’s some sort of stock problem, which means we might expect to see similar delays pop up with the other new Curve models, if the issue is confined to just the CDMA 9350, or if this is a strategic move on Sprint’s part and has nothing to do with any inventory issues.

Considering that Sprint put out a formal press release announcing the Curve 9350’s release date, we’d think it would make an official statement regarding the delay, assuming this rumor is true. If that’s the case, Sprint had better speak up fast.
