We learned last week that the Research in Motion was going to unveil their next generation device today. At around midnight this morning, the BlackBerry Bold press release went out and so far today, RIM’s stock price has shot up about 7%.

Not only is the stock price up today, some analysts believe that the BlackBerry Bold will boost quarterly BlackBerry shipments by 400,000 devices.

With the release of the CDMA BlackBerry Curve 8330 last week and the announcement of the BlackBerry Bold this week, it looks as though RIM is going to have one heck of a summer.
