One of the last hurdles new mobile devices have jump over before going on sale in the United States is getting FCC approval.  The new touch BlackBerry Bold 9900 has just won FCC approval, so, it shouldn’t be too long before that device goes on sale.  The touch Bold 9900 still needs to meet carrier acceptance, however, there is no regulatory reason why devices couldn’t be sold right now.

Research in Motion has already said that they are going to miss the back to school shopping season with the new touch BlackBerry Bold, so, I still don’t expect to see the device until the August/September time frame.
