Research in Motion’s latest BlackBerry has been delayed two months, Fortune reports. The Meteor phone, to run on AT&T’s 3G network, was pushed back from June to August. No reason was given, but sources say AT&T had concerns about audio quality.
It is possible, however, AT&T is intentionally delaying the release to avoid cluttering the 3G smartphone market—the new iPhone will also debut in June. The delay could prove costly to RIM, which has seen falling demand for an aging product line.
