Updated from 7:28 a.m. EDTIt's too bad we had to wait this long for the BlackBerry Bold. It's a winner. I was privileged to have Research In Motion's ( RIMM) President and Co-Chief Executive Mike Lazaridis visit TheStreet.com months ago to show me an early version of this terrific new phone. And then -- nothing. RIM and its minions went into stealth mode. The Bold was on its way, but no one was sure when we'd actually see it. The phone was then released in Canada and other locations around the world, but not in the U.S.
